Oscar winner says ‘The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’ deserve an Academy Award

Jennifer Lawrence is a huge fan of the Bravo show.

Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lawrence offered to give her Oscar to “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” for what she called the “best reality TV finale, I think, ever.”

Talking with E! Reporter Keltie Knight on the red carpet at the Golden Globes on Sunday, Lawrence — who won a best-actress Oscar for “Silver Linings Playbook” in 2013 — positively gushed over the fourth-season finale of “RHOSLC,” which aired five days earlier. Knight started the conversation about the Bravo show, but Lawrence quickly and enthusiastically jumped in. More than enthusiastically, actually.

“I was jaw-on-the-floor. I didn’t even text,” she said. “I didn’t even look at my phone” while watching the episode.

Asked if she thinks the “RHOSLC” cast members deserve an Oscar for their performance, Lawrence replied, “I’ll give ‘em mine! I don’t care. They deserve it!”

(Neither Keltin nor Lawrence acknowledged that Osars are for acting, and the Housewives are supposedly not acting — they’re appearing in a “reality” show.)

In that season finale, cast members Heather Gay, Lisa Barlow, Meredith Marks, Whitney Rose and Angie Katsanevas confronted Monica Garcia — who joined the cast in Season 4 — after Heather learned that Monica is behind the infamous Reality Von Tease Instagram account, which has trolled the Housewives viciously for years. After first denying she had any involvement with it, Monica eventually acknowledged that she was one of multiple people who operate the account. She did, however, insist she only posted about former cast member Jen Shah, who’s now serving a prison term after confessing to federal fraud charges — although the other women did not believe her.

While being interviewed on the Golden Globes red carpet by Nischelle Turner of “Entertainment Tonight,” Lawrence gave a “shoutout to the best finale I have ever seen on reality TV. Oh my God! Wow.” She even repeated (to the best of her memory) Heather’s performance in the show, which she called “amazing.”

Lawrence is a fan of multiple iterations of “The Real Housewives. Although that was her favorite season finale, “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” is not her favorite show. “I’m alway partial to Beverly Hills,” Lawrence said. “I’m relieved by the [overhauled] New York crew. ... I think they’re going to round out nicely. Everybody seems to have the right personality disorder that we like to see.

“I really liked ‘Dallas,’ but nobody else did.” (It was canceled in 2021.)

She didn’t watch the “RHOSLC” season finale until “a couple days later,” and she was “stone cold sober, because I was starving for this event, and I was jaw dropped.” She effused over the show and the women on it.

“I want a painting of the moment where they’re all on the beach” as Heather tells Lisa, Meredith and Whitney about Monica’s betrayal. “The different looks (on their faces,” Lawrence said on E!. “It was amazing. And they were like a little band of witches. You know, like, they all fight and they came together for this amazing moment.”

The three-part Season 4 reunion begins Tuesday on Bravo — 6 p.m. on Dish and Directive; 9 p.m. on Comcast. Part 2 airs Tuesday, Jan. 16; and Part 3 airs Tuesday, Jan. 23.
