Jennifer Lopez says she should have won an Oscar

Jennifer Lopez spoke to Latina magazine and it was pretty much boring blah blah stuff until you got the part about how Jennifer thought she should have won an Oscar for her role in El Cantante.

“I feel like I had that [Oscar worthy role] in El Cantante, but I don’t even think the academy members saw it. I feel like it’s their responsibility to do that, to see everything that’s out there, everything that could be great.” “Well, it is a little bit frustrating. It was funny; when the Oscars were on, I had just given birth on the 22nd, and the Oscars, I think, were a day or two later. I was sitting there with my twins—I couldn’t have been happier—but I was like, ‘How dope would it have been if I would’ve won the Oscar and been here in my hospital bed accepting the award?’ ‘Thank you so much! I just want to thank the academy!’ But we joked about it. It’s all good. Things will happen when they’re supposed to happen. I have the utmost faith and no doubt that it will one day, when and if it’s supposed to. You can’t get all crazy twisted over it.”

For reference, El Cantante is sitting at a high 4.9/10 on IMDB right now and has a 24% on Rotten Tomatoes. I’m sure critics did see it and immediately threw it in the trash. So if by Oscar Jennifer meant Oscar-like in that the statue she’d have been awarded was made of milk chocolate and merely wrapped in gold foil to resemble an Oscar and the Academy who voted for her consisted of chocolate Easter bunnies to be eaten at a later date, then, yea, I’d agree with her. If not, then she sounds pretty delusional. Does senility kick in this early at 40? Jennifer may want to have that checked out.
