Jennifer Lawrence is starting 2013 on the funny foot.
After giving a humorous acceptance speech at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, the Silver Linings Playbook star, 22, will host Saturday Night Live on Saturday.
Teaming up with the SNL's newly engaged star Jason Sudeikis, the pair shot some hilarious promos for the big night, which will also feature musical guest The Lumineers.
In one promo, Sudeikis introduces Lawrence, who confidently replies, "Yes! First, a Golden Globe, now this? I don't even know who to thank!"

A day after a gunman shot down 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school, Saturday Night Live pushed comedy aside to pay tribute to the lives lost.
The New York City Children's Chorus opened Saturday's show with an elegant performance of "Silent Night" (watch below). The song was a departure for the humor-driven show that typically kicks off the night with a punchline.
At the closing of the Christmas classic, the chorus turned back to tradition, shouting out, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!"

From Chanel ... to Taco Bell?
Brad Pitt is now hawking everything from Mexican food to canine contraceptives – in a series of Saturday Night Live parodies, that is.
In response to his seriously sexy ads for Chanel No. 5 that debuted earlier in the week, Taran Killam got into character as the company's first-ever male spokesman.

Ricky's out, Tina and Amy are in! Monday's announcement that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards on NBC in January – succeeding Ricky Gervais, who hosted the past three years – left fans of the comedy powerhouses delighted.
Years before they costarred on Saturday Night Live, Fey and Poehler got their start together performing with the Second City improv troupe in Chicago. Since then, the funny ladies have worked together on projects ranging from Mean Girls to Baby Mama.

Judging by the five medals around his neck from the London Games, you might say Ryan Lochte had a busy summer.
Or, as he might say, "I was America in Olympics." Well, that was Seth MacFarlane's take on the swimmer during a Weekend Update skit on SNL's 38th-season premiere Saturday. Watch below.
MacFarlane, channeling the swimmer, gave anchor Seth Meyers his take on the fall TV season. On his must-see list: "Monkey Hospital," he says, "It's not fair – they give all the best lines to the monkey." Of course, he's referring to NBC's Animal Practice. His verdict? "Three swims."

Colbie Smulders's wedding to Saturday Night Live funnyman Taran Killam on Saturday was a star studded – and family-friendly – affair.
Smulders's How I Met Your Mother castmates Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan were on hand for the celebration – and so were their little kids.
"Spent the weekend with the family at one of the most fantastic weddings I've ever attended. Good times. So much love," Harris Tweeted on Sunday.
It was all about family for Smulders (who wore a Claire Pettibone gown) and Killam, who are parents to 3-year-old daughter Shaelyn.

For once, Saturday Night Live didn't go for laughs, instead ending its season with tears and hugs Saturday night.
In a surprise – and surprisingly emotional – send-off, cast members appeared to bid goodbye to key player Kristen Wiig. The Bridesmaids star's departure has long been rumored, but has yet to be confirmed by NBC.
Still, the farewell sentiment seemed clear: After host Mick Jagger introduced a class of "graduates," Wiig took the stage. Then one by one, her SNL costars joined her, each for a brief dance while musical guest Arcade Fire serenaded her with "She's a Rainbow" and "Ruby Tuesday."
Last to take a tearful Wiig for a spin: her boss, SNL producer Lorne Michaels.

Patricia Krentcil, the New Jersey woman who's become known as "Tanning Mom," is now laughing with her critics instead of lashing out at them.
Krentcil told the New York Post she was amused by Kristen Wiig's impersonation of her on Saturday Night Live this weekend.
"It was well done," Krentcil quipped, according to the Post. "The whole thing was hysterical."

"Tanning Mom" Patricia Krentcil has now officially had her moment in the sun: She's been lampooned on Saturday Night Live.
The joking around took place during the Weekend Update with Seth Meyers, when, in a trail of smoke, Kristen Wiig showed up at the news desk looking like Krentcil, the New Jersey mom who's pleaded not guilty to bringing her 6-year-old daughter into a tanning bed with her.
Expanding upon the real Krentcil's remarks to a reporter this week that critics of her look are "jealous," "fat" and "ugly," Wiig said, "Though I can't blame them for being jealous. I am alluring in a way they will never be."
