Jennifer Lopez was on-hand at Oprah Winfrey‘s much-talked about 2020 Vision tour stop in Los Angeles last night.
Speaking candidly about the peaks and troughs of her personal and professional life, the star opened up about being omitted from the Oscar nominations.
J.Lo was hotly tipped for the shortlist after wowing with her role in ‘Hustlers’ – one which nabbed her a nomination at the Golden Globes and multiple wins at other ceremonies.
And yet, nothing.
Head below to see what she said…
“I was sad, I was a little sad because there was a lot of buildup to it. There were so many articles, I got so many good notices — more than ever in my career — and there was a lot of ‘She’s going to get nominated for an Oscar, it’s going to happen, if it doesn’t you’re crazy.’ I’m reading all the articles going, ‘Oh my god, could this happen?’ And then it didn’t and I was like ‘Ouch,’ it was a little bit of a letdown. Also I felt like my whole team — most of my team has been with me for years, 20, 25 years — and I think they had a lot of hopes on that and they wanted it too, so I felt like I let everyone down a little bit.”
Ultimately, the mass feedback has been resoundingly positive – like she said, some of the best of her acting career. So, there’s the win right there.
