The 2020 Oscar nominations are out and Jennifer Lopez has been snubbed.

Lopez’s portrayal of Ramona in Hustlers, an adaptation of Jessica Pressler’s New York article about strippers with a side hustle, was critically lauded and she landed a Golden Globe nomination for the role. The movie was a hit at the box office, but she was shut out of the best-supporting actress category, despite a grassroots Oscar campaign.

Lots of people weren’t pleased.

Hustlers director Lorene Scafaria was also shut out; in fact, no women were nominated in the best director category.

People were also calling out the snubbing of Lulu Wang’s The Farewell, as well as Lupita Nyong’o’s performance in Us.
