Clumsy Jennifer Lawrence sparked a mini-police emergency on the red carpet at the Oscars on Sunday when she stumbled and fell to her knees.

Three cops dashed to her aid. She was unhurt and comedian Ellen DeGeneres went on to joke about the incident during her opening monologue later that night.

The actress also slipped up at the Academy Awards last year, when she tripped up the stairs on her way to pick up her Best Actress award.
