- The nominations for the 2020 Academy Awards were announced this morning.
- Jennifer Lopez was snubbed in the best supporting actress category.
- The nominees are Laura Dern, Florence Pugh, Margot Robbie, Scarlett Johansson, and Kathy Bates.
Jennifer Lopez's fierce performance as Ramona in Hustlers has been generating Oscar buzz ever since the strip club scammer film debuted last September. However, when it finally came down to the 2020 Academy Award nominations, which were announced today, Lopez's name wasn't called in the Actress in a Supporting Role category.
Instead, the nominees are Kathy Bates (Richard Jewell), Laura Dern (Marriage Story), Scarlett Johansson (Jojo Rabbit), Florence Pugh (Little Women), and Margot Robbie (Bombshell).
Fans on Twitter who were expecting Lopez to get some recognition from the Academy were shocked by the snub. The actress has yet to publicly respond to the nominations, but her supporters promptly shared their thoughts.
Lopez did, however, receive supporting actress nods at other award ceremonies, including the Golden Globe, Critics' Choice, and Screen Actors Guild Awards. She lost to Laura Dern during the former two shows; fingers crossed she takes the hardware at the SAGs on January 19.
After her Globes loss earlier this month, Lopez's fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, comforted her with a touching message on Instagram.
"Jen, it doesn't take a trophy, medal, or plaque to identify a true champion," his caption read. "To millions of young women who have watched you and have been inspired and empowered to do amazing things in their lives, you are a champion. For countless musicians, dancers, actresses, and performers who have seen and emulate your passion, drive and work ethic to find their own success, you are a champion."
