Amy Schumer and BFF Jennifer Lawrence were both nominated for the same Golden Globe. Don't worry, there won't be a rivalry between the two friend over who should win. In fact, Jennifer Lawrence wants Amy Schumer to win--instead of winning herself.

When the nominations were announced, the Joy star said she didn't even realize Amy Schumer was nominated for the same award.

"That was so amazing because obviously I only pay attention to myself, so I was like oh I got nominated, and then when she texted and said something about the same category I was like – are you, what, like--huh?" she said during an interview with etalk.

Both Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer received nominations in the Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy category. Schumer got hers for Trainwreck and Lawrence, got hers for Joy.

Lawrence, a Golden Globe veteran, wants Amy Schumer to win.

"I genuinely don't want it--would love to see her sweet ass up on that stage," she said on Monday.

She added that a win for Amy Schumer would be a very positive thing for the film the two are writing together.

"So obviously I'm pulling for her. Selfishly, it would be good for our movie if she won, so vote for Amy," Lawrence said.

Last week Jennifer Lawrence said she wanted to dress exactly like Amy Schumer at the Golden Globes.

These two sound like fabulous friends. Wouldn't you love to be invited to drop in on the ladies' night fun and see how hilarious they are together?
