Jennifer Lopez's Oscar Snub Has Fans Outraged
The biggest snub of awards season.
The 2020 Oscar nominations were finally unveiled on Monday morning, and while there were plenty of people we were happy to see get honored (Bong Joon-ho! Florence Pugh! Renée Zellweger!), there were still some major snubs — most notably, Jennifer Lopez.
Lopez's stellar turn in Hustlers was widely believed to be the performance that would earn the actress her first Oscar nomination, but come Monday morning, fans were disappointed (to say the least) when her name wasn't called out for the Best Supporting Actress category.
Hustlers has drummed up considerable buzz for J.Lo, earning her a Golden Globe nod and plenty of other awards, including the Independent Spirit Award — making it even more shocking for some that the Oscars failed to recognize her this year.
Other big snubs included Lupita N'yong'o, for her performance in Us, as well as Zhao Shuzen for her role in The Farewell. This year's Oscars also failed to nominate any women in the Best Director category (just as the Golden Globes did), though Greta Gerwig did garner a nod for Best Adapted Screenplay for Little Women.
