Another reason why the celebrity machine is pathetic

Meryl Streep's inspiration, noted thespian and star of that acclaimed piece of artistry "Gigli", Jennifer Lopez aka J-Lo thinks she was robbed of an Academy Award. That is right, Jello thinks she's Oscar-worthy. In fact, she trumpets to Latina magazine that she should have won an Oscar. HAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, I needed a good laugh. Thanks Jenny! But seriously, this is what she said: “I feel like I had that [Oscar worthy role] in El Cantante, but Idon’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.”

Yup. Uh huh. That would have been "dope". In fact, I wish she would've won, just so I could watch the faces of those Academy types when she gave her humble speech. I think it would have gone something like this: "Yo yo yo! What up?! First off, wanna a give a shout out to my God! *fist pump* this is so dope y'all. I know I just gave birth to 2 babies, but this is the shit. I thank you and I promise to always keep it real wich y'all. *fist pump* I'm out!! *kisses her peace sign fingers*
   Seriously though, this delusional fool makes Whitney Houston seem like the voice of reason. I like what Lainey said this morning:   "Let’s look back, shall we?

El Cantante
would have been
eligible in either 2006 or 2007, I can’t remember. To be thorough,
we’ll examine the nominees for Oscar’s Leading Actress in both those
years:

2006:
Penelope Cruz, Volver
Judi Dench, Notes on a Scandal
Helen Mirren, The Queen
Meryl Streep, The Devil Wears Prada
Kate Winslet, Little Children

Helen Mirren was the eventual winner, OBVIOUSLY. But you tell me, on that list, is there room for Jennifer Lopez’s ass? Please.

2007:
Cate Blanchett, Elizabeth The Golden Age
Julie Christie, Away From Her
Marion Cotillard, La Vie en Rose
Laura Linney, The Savages
Ellen Page, Juno

Marion
Cotillard was the eventual winner, OBVIOUSLY. But you tell me, on that
list, is there room for Jennifer Lopez’s ass? Please.

This is the vanity. How vain. To sit around, having seen none of the other
films in contention – because you KNOW she has no clue – and
contemplate the ludicrous possibility of a nomination."

She totally nailed it. Vanity? Check. But it goes beyond all that too. She calls herself an artist. An artist? Really, J-Lo? Why? You don't create anything. People create things for you and then you take credit for them. Artists capture and document the particular zeitgeist of a time. You sing about Louboutins. Ridiculously overpriced shoes. I don't think Shakespeare would have written sonnets to audaciously expensive fashion goods. Okay, you are not a terrible actress, but come on. This is celebrity, people. This self-entitled smug attitude that makes people like her, like the Speidis, the Kardassians of the world. It really has to stop.
