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:
- â€œI 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 thatâ€™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 couldnâ€™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. Itâ€™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 itâ€™s supposed to. You canâ€™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!
