Due to less fortunate circumstances, superstar Jennifer Lopez could not earn a nomination for the Academy Awards shortlist for the role she played in ‘Hustlers’. J.Lo played the famous role of a stripper named Ramona.
Sharing her sentiments on being surpassed, the 51-year-old singer and actress told sources, “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.”
The actress, who was confident to win an award further said, “When it came to the Oscars, it was so obviously absent. It was a sting.”
The ‘Wedding Planner’ actress continued to say, “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.”
She said, “I think my life is about more than awards.”
Jennifer Lopez‘s hopes shattered all of a sudden when she was chucked out for an Oscar nomination the previous year. J.Lo was hopeful to win big for her spectacular performance in Hustlers.
