J. Lo Thought She Deserved An Oscar For El Cantante

Posted on Tue Jan 5, 2010 02:07 PM PDT


Jennifer Lopez graces the February 2010 cover of Latina mag, and she chats about her marriage to Marc Anthony, fame, and even some of her past lovers. I love J. Lo to death, but when the topic shifted to her work and why she felt like she deserved an Oscar nod for El Cantante, I found myself smirking a bit.

When asked why El Cantante was Oscar worthy, J. Lo replied:

    “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 ... 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."

Maybe if she had gotten nominated it would have been one thing, but c'mon J. Lo! You gotta be realistic here!

Hey, at least you looked smokin' hot in your cover shot! But those sequined kneesocks are a bit much, aren't they?
