These days, it seems that no awards show is complete with Jennifer Lawrence, and this year's Golden Globes was no different. She took the stage with best friend Amy Schumer and sassed the night away. In fact, she even managed to snag the trophy for Best Actress in a Comedy for her performance in the rip-roaringly hilarious romp Joy. (Just kidding, it was an emotional dramedy, and I'm pouring one out for Melissa McCarthy and Spy.)

Despite her third Golden Globe win, it was Jennifer's behavior after the show that has the internet talking. As she answered questions in the press room, she really ruffled some feathers when she insulted how one reporter was asking his question.

Here's the clip that has gotten people riled up

A reporter must have been glancing at his phone to read off a question, which made Jennifer wag her finger and tell him off.

You can't live your whole life behind your phone, bro. You can't do that. You gotta live in the now.

As he apologized and regained his composure, he began asking a question presumably about Jennifer's Oscar chances when she again cut him off.

We're at the Golden Globes. If you put your phone down, you'd know that.

Many viewers were far from impressed

As you can see, many people were quick to point out that this reporter may not speak English as his first language and easily could have been referring to his phone for a translation. Remember that the voters of the Golden Globes are the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Emphasis on foreign. So, it's totally understandable that this guy may have relied on technology to properly convey his question.

Secondly, Jennifer cuts him off because she thinks he incorrectly references the Oscars. However, it seems to me (and many other viewers) that he was asking about her Oscar chances now that she has the Golden Globe under her belt. That's a perfectly legitimate question and one that probably shouldn't have been met with snark.

Other people felt that she came across as rude answering a different question

A different reporter asked Jennifer about what happened to her plan to match Amy Schumer at the Golden Globes.

Reporter: "You guys said you were going to dress as twins this evening and I'm wondering..."
Jennifer: "Yeah but then I blew it by talking about it, because then if we did it it would have been expected, you know? So, we just wore our own thing. But I hope you were still satisfied by our presentation. It seems like you weren't. Next question."

This example is definitely not as outwardly dismissive as her phone comments, but critics have been pointing to her brusque tone and demeanor.

This isn't the first time Jennifer has come under fire for her treatment of reporters

Award show buffs will remember this moment from 2014 when the cast of American Hustle took home the award for Best Acting Ensemble. When they spoke to the press afterward, Amy Adams was the only one who remained gracious, while most of the others appeared uncouth and totally over it.

Jennifer outright winces when she was called on to answer a question, and, again, she distances herself from a reporter with an accent.

So, what do you think? Is this just Jen's sense of humor that is getting lost under scrutiny, or could she be a little nicer to members of the press?
