Jennifer Lawrence celebrated her Golden Globe win for best actress in a musical or comedy by calling out a reporter who couldn’t stay off his mobile device.

“You can’t live your whole life behind your phone, bro,” Lawrence said backstage at Sunday’s Globes after being asked a question by a reporter who was using his phone. “You can’t do that, you’ve got to live in the now.”

The reporter apologized and then continued his question, saying, “How do you see yourself for the Oscar[s] night,” before Lawrence cut him off again with another joking reprimand.

“We’re at the Golden Globes,” she said in response. “If you put your phone down, you’d know that.”

This wasn’t the only time Lawrence joked about someone using their phone on Sunday. While she presented with Amy Schumer on stage at the Globes, the pair teased someone in the crowd for having their phone out. Watch the video of Lawrence’s interaction with the reporter below.
