The Academy Awards is a family affair for Jennifer Lawrence, so much so that her own mother stole her Oscar ballot and tried to vote.

Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, Lawrence, 22, said she’s honored to be a member of the Academy but was aghast to learn that her mother filled out the official ballot and mailed it in – only to find it returned to their home because it was mailed to the wrong address!

So did the Silver Linings Playbook star agree with her mom’s choices? “No, I didn’t,” Lawrence said with a laugh.
