Los Angeles - Jennifer Lawrence wants Amy Schumer to win a Golden Globe Award over her.

The close pals will go compete in the Best Actress In A Comedy category for Amy's performance in Trainwreck which she wrote and Jennifer's starring turn in Joy but the Hunger Games star would be happy to see her friend take home the trophy. 

She told Entertainment Tonight: "We both agree. We want her up there. Although she won't say that, I can say it."

Jennifer previously won Golden Globe Awards in 2013 and 2014 for 2013 Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle and wants her friend to win so that it will increase interest in the screenplay they have written together.

She said: "I was like, 'I want to see your sweet little ass up there on that stage'. Selfishly, it would be really good for our movie if she won. So vote for Amy."

Speaking previously about going head-to-head with Jennifer, Amy joked: "The friendship is completely over. I just blocked her number. It's over."

If neither of them are successful they will be able to drink their sorrows away as Jennifer revealed she wants a pina colada tap at her Golden Globes table. 

Jennifer and Amy's good friend Brie Larson has also been nominated - for Best Actress In A Drama for her performance in Room - and the trio are planning to sit together and get drunk. 

Jennifer said: "We're gonna try to sit at the same table. I texted Brie Larson too. I was like, 'We're gonna try to get the same table,' and she's like, 'pina colada tap!' And I was like, 'Yeah! Yes!' We're so excited because it's actually gonna be fun this time."
