J. Lo Thought She Deserved An Oscar!

| Filed under: LatinoliciousFilm FlickersJennifer LopezAwardzMarc Anthony



Is she serious?

Jennifer Lopez revealed in a new interview with Latina magazine that she thought her role in box office flop El Cantante alongside husband Marc Anthony could have landed her an Oscar…if anyone had seen it!

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. 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."

Oh, honey. You may be a lot of things, but an Oscar-winning actress is definitely not one of them.

You should work on saving your music career first before worrying about winning any Oscars!

    lmao0o is she serious!!! wtf!!!???
    If she ever wins an Oscar I can so win one to0!! she sucks as an actress and a singerr!!!

  2. 2

    Actually, she should lose the singing career and focus on films. She's a great actress and has proven she can carry a film.

  3. 3

    Ugh she is so full of herself. What is up with that monster head. She looks like a drag queen in this pix. Awful and so was that movie. Go away, no one like you Jen. You're career is done. You remind me of Joan Crawford and you're starting to look like her.

  4. 4

    what about her role as selena!!??? amazing replication of an incredibly talented mexican superstar, one who could have been the next gloria estefan (selena that is).

  5. 5

    I actually agree with her on the film El Cantante. It was good and she was great in it. I felt like I was really watching puchi and hector lavoe.

  6. 6

    She's a has been.

  7. 7

    that's about the funniest thing I've heard all year! J Lo of the Ass, an Oscar winner? These people need to get a clue, and stop believing all of the shit they pay people to tell them.

  8. 8

    This old skank deserves al my…. PITY!!!!

    Do you EVER know what you are talking about? She has been nominated and or won over 13 major awards including a golden globe. Not singing, not dancing…acting.

    How is it possible that you report on entertainment and cant even get that right?

  10. UGH! says – reply to this


    "How to save money like an immigrant" … Really?!? Wow…

  11. 11

    um. i kind of love those socks. in fact i want them.

  12. 12

    I usually don't agree with Perez, but yeah J-Ho is a HORRIBLE actress. Right up there with Jennifer Aniston..

  13. 13

    As proud Latino, i would think you would support fellow Latino actors and actresses…constructive criticism helps, but instead you put them down. And it's no just J.Lo you put down, it has been many others. Shame on you!

  14. 14

    No one will take you seriously, honey, if you and and your husband co-produce and star in the same film. I saw it only for Ruben Blades. YES, THAT'S THE ONLY REASON WHY. And, I didn't vote for it because you keep making stuck up, arrogant comments like this all the time. Maybe Marc's heart was in the right place when he wanted to make this film, but you madame, need to get off your high horse and realize NO ONE LIKES YOU AS AN ACTRESS. No one cares! You need to stop sabotaging your husbands' chances and step aside so he can get the recognition he deserves– not the recognition you THINK you are entitled to!

  15. 15

    she's having delusions of grandeur again.

  16. 16

    Re: Latina227 – J-Lo's heritage has nothing to do with her bad acting & delusional comments.

  17. 17

    Lol that's why i don't like her at all. She believes that she is the best thing in the world. As a singer she is a loser, and as an actress well, she needs to improve a lot if she wants to at least be nominated for the Golden Globes lol

  18. fiera says – reply to this


    Actually, I thought Marc Anthiny's performance in that movie deserved an oscar-he was really good in it. She sucked .

  19. 19

    right ! well honey when you make crappy movies hint-> GIGLI, what do you expect? saw her apperance at the new years in NY : O it was funny a 40yr old woman trying to stay ontop on her dancer.. wonder what the guy thought?

  20. 20

    She can't sing and she could never act. The only good things she ever did was to insure her fat ass and to star in Selena! She was a good dancer, I give her that.

  21. 21

    Ha!! As if!! Shake your fat ass back to the ghetto "J-No", all the people there like your movies - ’cause you don't, like, use big words or nothing and the monosyllables you do spit out are in a thick-tongued bottom caste grunt that makes them feel at home
    the irony for all you hood rats that think this hooker is your "Ghetto Queen" - old Jenny from the block may sing awful songs about how she's still the same street walkin' ho she always was but the fact is she wouldn't piss on any of you welfare cockroaches if you were on fire

  22. YUCK says – reply to this


    Im no jlo fan in fact these days I might be her biggest critic, (her wardrobe choices reek of desperation) but I must say I think that was an oscar nomination worthy performance, halle berry has an oscar for monsters ball and jlo was way better. watch the movie before you cast judgement.

  23. 23

    She's an AWFUL actress so why in the world would she think she's deserving. Instead of being a complainer may she should work on her acting chops and learn how to be a true actress that she never was or is at this time.

  24. 24

    perez, i am sure if lady gaga had made the same statement, you would be on your band wagon about what a great actress and singer she is. do you ever get tired of cutting people down all the time unless they allow you to be photographed with them? Of course, not many do……hhmm, wonder why that could be?

  25. 25

    wow what an idiot

  26. 26

    What do you mean, dumbass?! She IS an actress, and a good one at that! However, the makeup is hardcore - atrocious. The makeup "artist" should be fired. Horrible.

  27. 27

    Re: slite – she was nominated for Selena like a million years ago… Madonna won the golden globe - the globes love musicals. I didn't know MTV, Razzie teen choice, People Choice awards were noteworthy.

  28. 28

    Re: Latina227 – Who cares if she's Latina, she SUCKS.. If you suck you suck, regardless of race or ethnicity.

  30. 30

    Her plastic surgery / photoshop looks very strange in this picture

  31. 31

    You can tell by ALL of her very very photoshopped photos and magazine covers that she is a legend in her own mind. It is so comical to see this short big assed Puero Rican girl who thinks she is a tall, slim fashion model, who can sing, dance and act and of course, leap tall buildings in a single bound. Every time I see a photo shoot of her I have to laugh!! Keep it up JLO, we need the laughs!

  32. 32

    Retarded outfit. Looks like she's got Psoriasis on her shins.

    It sounds so silly for a "serious actress" in her 50s to use the word "Dope".
    She thinks shes Kei$ha.
    She's looking old. More and more makeup caked on, stronger lighting, more photoshop.

    she used to be so hot and made great career decisions, but now meh…I'll pass

  33. 33

    LOL………Her ass alone is the only oscar contender……………….
    This is how it will gol down……" And the winner for best actress in a movie is………………….J Lo's Ass" And excepting the award for J Lo's Ass is Jennifer Lopez.

  34. 34

    First of all..WHO'S TITS ARE THOSE??!!! LOL WE ALL KNOW SHE HAS NO TITS! For God sake stop altering these freakin celebrities pics!! As for the idiot LATINA 227 saying Perez should lift her up and praise her just because she's LATINA and he is LATINO…YOU ARE A RACIST DOUCHE!! Perez is correct! She sucks! wtf does them being of the same background have anything to do with his right to tell the truth??!! Grow up you ignorant A$$ BIOTCH!

  35. 35

    She is delusional that movie was horrible and she was a horrible in it. I lasted about 20 minutes or so. She sounds pretty desperate. If it is good then the academy members would see it.

  36. 36

    only thing remotelly "Oscar-worthy" is her ego…

  37. 37

    Is it just me or does anyone else notice that the socks she's wearing are the same ones Heidi wore at the Regis & Kelly Live show??

  38. 38

    j-ho making love last? what, through the weekend?!

  39. 39

    whatever, you One-Note Entitled C.U.N.T.

  40. 40

    By the way, no to sound like a hater but there is nothing for her to work on musically either. Please do yourself a favor JLo and focus on taking care of your kids. Instead of trying to hard to be something that you're not anymore.

  41. 41

    Her and Count Dracula need to stop acting.

  42. 42

    She is a deluded as that character she was playing

  43. 43

    she's actually a pretty good actress, perez!

    but she's jenny from the block, so it's hard to take her seriously. . .

  44. 44

    Jennifer is not a very good actress, nor singer. A good dancer, though.

  45. 45

    take what u get and don't be upset!!

  46. 46

    Jennifer is not a very good actress, nor singer. She's a fine dancer, though. Her ego is too big for the big screen.

  47. 47

    Oscar?!?!! She must be crazy, first of all she can't even sing let alone act. Jeez Kate Winslet was nominated God knows how many times and until recently finally got one. What makes J LO think she can stand next to women like Kate, Meryl Streep, Penelope, and many other amazing actresses? She needs to stop smoking that crack that her husband was smoking en El Cantante. Lmao

  48. 48

    She looks awful in this picture. And Perez, don't encourage her on her music-she needs to stick to acting as a viable what's left of her career road. I saw the movie, it sucked, showed such seedy Puerto Rican life, and an Oscar???for that????!!! She just loves to drone about her same ol' delusional self. It's over, Jennifer. Start something new or say good-bye.

  49. 49

    Oh, oh, Perez…!!! Ups, you did it again…!

    I don’t believe you still think you’re such a big celeb and that you’re so awesome that you could even consider commenting someone like J.Lo.
    Women can dream…, she can dream about anything she wants, even if it means dreaming about winning an Oscar…, who the f**k are you to judge her.
    Not even if you somehow manage to live a hundred lives, you still wouldn’t be anywhere close to achieving one percent of what she achieved by now…and keep in mind she is still young and she’s getting more& more successful every day.

    And where are you???

    She is good actress! And she is awesome artist, singer, performer, dancer, and entrepreneur. Neither of what you will ever be…, don’t you agree Miss Perez…?

    Deal with the successful people already won’t you. And get over your self, your getting quite boring already!

  50. 50

    Im not a JLO or Mark A fan, infact I kind of think he's a douche bag. HOWEVER, one morning around 4 am, I happend to watch this movie on HBO and I was seriously blown away by both their acting chops. That being said, I think Mark A was the one that really stole the movie. But ya, their performs were defintely Oscar worthy.

  51. 51

    OMG…is she considering Stand up comedy…because that quote was hilarious. Poor girl….she's delusional…

  52. 52

    I saw El Cantante. It wasn't a 'bad' movie but it DEFINITELY was not Oscar-worthy. Sorry to burst your bubble, JLo……..

  53. 53

    Re: ba-buttons – Wow..you sound just as delusional as she.

  54. 54

    The movie was pretty good actually, but is she serious with this "How DOPE would it have been…"…WHY in the world does this 40 yr old continue to embarrass herself with her fake 'Ghetto-ness" From Jenny from the block to "Loueeeboooutons"…she keeps trying to act like she's a teenager. I'm embarrassed FOR her. It's cringe worthy.

  55. StayC says – reply to this


    What movie? Everything since Selena has gone dramatically down hill… her movies suck. GET OVER YOURSELF HONEY

  56. 56

    Love The Socks.

  57. 57

    LOLOLOLOL omg J. Lo is such a fucking idiot.

  58. 58

    I believe her and Mark were both amazing in El Cantante. Definately agree with her. I also feel that she should've been nominated for her role in Selena as well.

  59. 59

    wow look at that headline "How to save money like an immigrant" WTFFFFF??

  60. 60

    this bitch who can only lip-sync in public whose only true accomplishment was as a fly girl thinks she deserves an oscar? where can i get those drugs?

  61. 61

    JLO is looking rather tranny in this pic

  62. 62

    She was Ok in that film, but she was better in Selena. She's stupid to say that publicly, but she has never struck me as the brightest bulb.

  63. 63

    They need to get that COS to buy them better roles, not that it would make any difference.

  64. 64

    she should quit acting and singing bc she sucks at both and work on her clothing lines.

  65. 65


  66. 66

    what a conceited, delusional loser. She married a chain smoking egomaniac and had his fourth and fifth kids and didn't even breastfeed them….the guy still smokes like the proverbial crematorium. does he have any brain cells left? Jennifer was a good dancer but her singing sucks. she should stick to modeling, she has nice bone structure. her husband can act and sing but …ewwwww! remember Jennifer in that movie with (swoon) George Clooney? Yeah, great acting, LOL!

  67. 67

    ur mean. damn.
    she deserves to win one

  68. 68

    I actually think she could win an oscar, she's got the acting chops, just needs the right role. And she needs to stop with the music career.

  69. 69

    hahaha! making love last! Her??? and I love "Latinas on TV." How about "Latinas with orange hair"?

  70. 70


  71. 71

    That may be the funniest thing I've ever read. Thank you Jennifer for giving me a good laugh. Maybe you should become a comedian.

  72. 72

    lol. I'm sorry Jennifer Lopez will never ever win an Oscar. Her acting is horrible. I feel like im watching Jenny from the Block in every movie. Maybe thats why she felt she was so good in The Cantante…because of the Nuyorican thing she has going on?
    (Hector Lavoe must be rolling in his grave btw)

    BUT WHAT I REALLY HATE- is Latino actors who rep Latino heritage to the fullest …in this case- "Puerto Rico" and have never ever done anything for their country or have no idea what it is like to really live there! She needs to stop.

    –(yo soy Bori criada en la isla y los nuyores

  73. 73

    Perez, are you effin' kidding me?! J Lo CANNOT sing to save her life!! I actually like her as an actress. From the looks of it Perez, you eat quite a lot. Why not start eating foods that will help nurish your poor lil' brain?!

  74. 74

    El Cantante was a great movie and should have deserved Oscar recognition!!! Perez please dont hate on the latin people Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony did an awesome job portraying Hector Lavoe's life. I think the move deseved an OSCAR

  75. 75

    How "dope"???? What is she, twelve?? Who says that when they are almost 40 and a mother of twins??? She is delusional also re thinking she would ever get an Oscar nomination. Dream on sweetie!

  76. 76

    Oh she IS 40! Even worse!!

  77. 77

    You know, Perez, I saw El Cantante and she was really good in it! She was as good as a lot of previous nominees for OScar. And let's don't forget JLo was nominated for that made for TV shizz Selena, so there's that. But I will agree that her fantasy was a little much.

  78. 78

    She can dance that's for sure.

  79. 79

    that photoshop is horrible!!! she looks like an alien

  80. 80

    Hahaha she makes me laugh. First of all, whoever photoshopped this picture is horrible b/c her real boobs are actually small. Second, I saw the movie and her acting was mediocre. It was NOT oscar worthy. She should stick to movies like the wedding planner and monster in law. Those are really 'oscar worthy'. Ha! Her acting is mediocre so is her singing. Her ass is what made her a star. Now that its deflating (lol) so is her career.

  81. 81

    lol…and this is not a humble bitch, she thinks she deserves this and that

  82. 82

    an Oscar Meyer

  83. 83

    whoa, she looks awful in that pic. the outside is matching the inside…

  84. 84

    Right!!! Just like you deserved one for "Gigli"?! Way to live in a life of denial, Jen!!! Just stick to dancing, or baby making…

  85. 85

    She does deserve an Oscar, she's been snubbed so many times. She's had films like Selena, Mi Familia, El Cantante, U-Turn and Blood Whine….Perez yr an idiot!

  86. 86

    Re: Tiffy77 – So because she's latin she should be exempt from being critisized for being the self entitled bitch that she is???

  87. 87

    Blaming others instead of herself. What a talentless piece of shit c'unt. The Academy ought to sue her fat ho ass.

  88. 88

    I thought she and Marc Anthony did a really good job actually. El Cantante was under rated. It was a great film. Marco Antonio has an amazing voice.

  89. 89

    have any of you's even seen the movie? maybe you should start judging after you've seen it!

  90. 90

    wow - J. Lo is sooooo OLD - what a horrible cover photo!

  91. 91

    I always enjoyed her romantic comedies and I think she was great in Selena. Oy vey, I cannot believe she thought that movie and her performance was oscar worthy. Embarassing. She is a much better actress then she is a singer.

  92. 92

    ah those socks…so pretty.

  93. 93

    Not a fan of Jennifer or Marc. I wouldn't watch El Cantante even if someone gave me the DVD for free. She is so full of herself.

  94. 94

    OMFG!!! is she f**king serious??? Bitch cant act. And dont let me get started
    on her singing…

  95. 95


  96. @v@ says – reply to this


    An Oscar? Alrighty then.

  97. 97

    ok ok dont judge her..but i saw el cantante..and her acting wasnt the jennifer we all know..she was really GOOD in that movie trust me

  98. 98

    She wanted to accept it in her hospital bed???
    Get a grip on reality!
    It was the academy's fault for not viewing the film????
    Talk about living in (ooo) la la land…..

  99. 99

    What right does she have to blame other people for her own lack of talent? Whore.

  100. 100

    never heard of it so wikipedia-ed it and it said "The film received mainly negative reviews with many critics blaming the film's flaws on Jennifer Lopez."
