Oscar nominations are out, and as always, some hopefuls were left out. One of the biggest snubs being mentioned is Jennifer Lopez's lack of a supporting actress nod for Hustlers; USA Today calls it a "complete shock," while People notes Lopez "has been a fixture this awards season" thanks to her role in the film, which had previously gotten her SAG, Critics' Choice, and Golden Globes nominations. The drama, in which J.Lo plays a stripper, scored the highest opening of Lopez's career, earning glowing reviews and generating major Oscars buzz. As NBC News notes, fans are pointing to yet another Oscars diversity problem, with some reviving the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag from 2015. "Jennifer Lopez was snubbed from her first ever Oscar nomination so others could be recognized for playing the same basic white women characters," tweeted one critic. More snubs:
