When Jennifer Lawrence accepted the Golden Globe for lead actress in a motion picture comedy or musical, she looked it over and quipped, "What does it say? I beat Meryl!"
Meryl Streep was nominated in the same category for Hope Springs.
But that certainly doid not go down well with some Twitter users. "Who says that?" tweeted Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba.
Celeb blogger Perez Hilton cautioned, "Oh, no you didn't!!!! Meryl Streep is gonna haunt your dreams!!!!!!!!!!"
Lawrence was actually quoting a line from the movie First Wives Club starring Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton.
Fans who got the joke were quick to point out she was not dissing Streep, who has more Golden Globe nominations than anyone.
