In Hustlers, Lopez played a role that was "really new" for her because it was the first time she played a character that could be construed as a villain. Her latest release, Hustlers, landed her a Golden Globe nomination.

Prior to the Oscar nominations announcement, Lopez told ET that she had "nothing to complain about" if she wasn't nominated for an Oscar.

Well-deserving actors and artists got their nods, while some of the finest work of the year was completely ignored per the Oscars' unadventurous prerogative, and a few freaky nominations just made no sense at all.

Actor Issa Rae, one of the presenters of the nominations, quipped "congratulations to those men" when the director nominees were announced, and #DirectorsSoMale became a trending topic on Twitter.

The Academy did not immediately respond to a request for comment about criticism regarding lack of diversity. JLo was expected to receive a nomination for Actress in a Supporting Role. "When I made my first movie, when I booked my first dance job and went to Europe and nobody in my family had been to Europe", he said. Would you come? "And I said", Of course.

Having achieved so much in the entertainment world during his three-decade career, the 50-year-old woman was asked what remained on her wish list.

Female directors were also shut out of the 2020 Oscar nominations: Marielle Heller (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood), Greta Gerwig (Little Women), Lorene Scafaria (Hustlers), and Lulu Wang (The Farewell) were not featured under the Best Director category.
