"It's about breaking the mold of what people are used to", she said of collaborating with women who direct films. It can be remembered that J Lo was nominated at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Award because of her exemplary performance in portraying her role as Ramona Vega, the leader of a group of women who swindle rich men in Hustlers.
"Doing this movie was a big deal for me", she said.
The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences released its top contenders for the Oscar on Monday, and notably missing from the list of nominees was Jennifer Lopez and her box-office phenomenon Hustlers.
"Except a few sore muscles from rehearsals", she added, referring to her preparations for her performance at the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show.
She wrote: "Scarlett Johansson being nominated for an oscar while Lupita Nyong'o is snubbed is literally white privilege".
Meanwhile, another fan alleged that racism may have played a role in Lopez's lack of nominations. "Yeah, that." Bates was nominated in the supporting actress category for her role in "Richard Jewell".
But in a new interview with Vanity Fair magazine, Jennifer revealed that she often dreams about what she'd be doing if she wasn't an actress and singer - and it's much simpler than people may think.
Two-time Oscar victor De Niro was nominated as a producer of "The Irishman", which will compete for Best Picture, but not for his acting in the gangster epic.
The star has achieved major success in music, acting and dance spanning over her 30 year career. "You have your first love and the love of your life, and acting is the love of my life".
Comic actor Adam Sandler had won acclaim for his dramatic role in crime thriller "Uncut Gems", but voters left him out of the Oscar nominations. The origin story for Batman's famous foe was closely followed by "The Irishman", "Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood" and "1917", with each movie receiving 10 Oscar nominations.
"Joker" star Joaquin Phoenix was nominated for best actor.
