“Would love your thoughts on what qualifies someone."

Don't come for Priyanka Chopra — PERIOD.

A reporter had the audacity to publicly question if the Quantico star and her husband, Nick Jonas, were qualified to announce the Oscar nominations on Monday.

"No disrespect to these two but I'm not sure their contribution to the movies qualifies them to be announcing Oscar nominees," the reporter tweeted.

I, for one, did not realize that reading a teleprompter for 20 minutes was a position that required film world clout. Anyway, considering that Chopra and Jonas each have 78 acting credits on their respective IMDb pages (which, for Chopra, includes Oscar-nominated film The White Tiger), the argument is certainly misguided. The reporter's folly aside, Chopra has the receipts (as does anyone with an internet connection) and took it upon herself to share.

"Would love your thoughts on what qualifies someone," Chopra responded to the since-deleted tweet. "Here are my 60+ film credentials for your adept consideration," she wrote, sharing a video tour of her (lengthy) IMDb page.

Jonas has yet to respond, but honestly, Camp Rock speaks for itself.
