Jennifer Lopez Breaks Silence On Oscar Snub

Published: Sunday 1st Mar 2020 by Sam

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.

    The crazy part is she still went to the Oscars even though she was snubbed?‍♂️?‍♂️.. what was the point?

    • Clarks0o0ñ March 1, 2020

      Stop spreading lies

      Jlo didnt attend the 2020 Oscars.

      • Lmfao_Hoe March 1, 2020

        Wait she didn’t? She was literally in picture with Beyonce and Jay at their table there ??

    • Bluebird March 1, 2020

      She’s a Hard Worker. Has Little Talent but a Hard Worker – like Madonna. Just be glad Jennifer Lopez that your extremely successful YOUR A BACK-UP DANCER – who is Iconic WITH ZERO MUSIC ABILITY. STFU SIS

      • Holliewuudd March 1, 2020

        When you try to come for someone but don’t know the difference between “your” and “YOU’RE”, it’s sad. Go back to school before you try to minimize someone else’s talents, loser.

      I’m not sure why there was any shock. I saw Hustlers. I thought the movie was GOOD maybe even VERY GOOD. It wasn’t great or historic in anyway. I also thought her performance which was good was no different from her being the Bronx girl she is. The idea that it was a possible Oscar-winning performance had to be all PR-driven and was no shock to anyone but her team that she didn’t get the nomination.

      Congratulations to Jennifer and the success of the movie, I think it was worthy of that, but that’s it. Oscar? Not at all.

      I’m shocked Billboard made her the first female artist to win the ICON Award (after Neil Diamond, Stevie Wonder and Prince!) despite the fact she never won any Billboard Awards before that. Not a single Billboard award. Before Madonna, Janet, Mariah, Whitney, Barbara, Cher, Tina.

    i don’t understand it, sorry and i love j.lo.
    i saw the movie, it’s not a good one. she didn’t do any acting that deserve an oscar. that was a just a buzz movie not a quality movie or a quality acting.
    someone have to say the truth.

    I think ‘Enough’ was a better movie for J.Lo acting wise …. she did that well .
    I find she is usually the same character in every film …which is cute … makes her likeable.
    She plays all her roles well and should be recognised but I’m not sure they’re Oscar worthy ….

    • Only Facts March 1, 2020

      I literally said the same thing! Completely agree!

      • Erica March 1, 2020

        Took the words out my mouth this movie didn’t require no dramatic acting from her, however enough was damn good & prove to me she’s not just a name

  4. Clarks0o0ñ March 1, 2020

    Kathy bates stole her nomination.

    Jlo did a split in that movie, she is a 50 year old woman, that can break her back or legs.

    The Oscar’s didnt want to nominate her cause they look at her as a socialite/pop star and not a serious actress.

    she got almost every award nomination building up to the Oscar’s

    Golden globes
    Sag
    Indie spirit
    Critics choice
    And several other smaller award nominations.

  5. Gee March 1, 2020

    The fact she was not nominated for an Oscar because she didn’t earn it. Hustlers was nothing special. Also she needs to stop with the pop star socialite persona and take her craft more seriously and then maybe she will be looked at more seriously for her work. It is more to job than just being a pretty face, and a big name.

        This answer associated to your ego trip proves how much you’re desperate to catch anybody’s attention by convincing yourself that somebody can have any interest in your inexistant personnality 😉

        I just care enough to prove to everyone that you are a fraud and I just did 🙂

    Oscar snub? Huslters was just another Jho movie. Is was not groundbreaking acting or anything.

  8. Diabeetus Unbothered March 1, 2020

    I’m assuming jlo wanted a directorial type Oscar nom, jlo has long been an actor whom I’ve never considered to even have the slightest chance at winning an Oscar or even being nominated. Jlo has always been just a GOOD actress even at her absolute best performances.

    Jlo might get nominated for a razzie tho just like bey did for OBSESSED
