If she doesn’t get it, you’re crazy.’ I’m reading all the articles going, ‘Oh my God, could this happen?’ And then it didn’t and I was like ‘Ouch.’”
J.Lo did nab several other nominations for Hustlers, including a Golden Globe, an Independent Spirit Awards, and a SAG award. Laura Dern won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Marriage Story.
