After her critically praised Hustlers performance, Jennifer Lopez opens up about how she felt about her 2020 Oscars snub.
If you don’t know, Lopez won Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards and Critics’ Choice Awards nominations that year for her film work. She has been notoriously left off the list of Oscar winners.
“I was talking about this the other day. [My production partner] Elaine [Goldsmith-Thomas] made a post where she listed all the things I had been nominated for and won that season. And when it came to the Oscars, it was so obviously absent. It was a sting. I was like, ‘Okay, when you’re supposedly in everybody else’s mind supposed to be nominated and you’re not, what does that mean? Is it really real? Are the other ones real and this one isn’t?’ It came to a point where I was like, ‘This is not why I do this. I don’t do this to have 10 Oscars sitting on my mantel or 20 Grammys.’” Jennifer told Allure.
