If a tree falls in the woods, does it make a sound? And if an actress makes a movie that no one saw, should she get an Oscar? Jennifer Lopez thinks so. The singer-actress-sequined bodysuit lover recently spoke to Latina Magazine and said that she was disappointed that her role in El Cantante went unnoticed by the academy in 2007.
The film, which also starred real-life husband Marc Anthony, was released with little fanfare and Lopez explains to the magazine that she was disappointed by the lack of attention it received. “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.”
Lopez delivered her twins, Max and Emme, in February 2008, just before the Academy Awards ceremony, and said that she fantasized about giving an acceptance speech from her hospital bed. “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!’” We think the academy just realized that for every El Cantante role, there’s a Maid In Manhattan, so maybe they were just punishing her for her past transgressions.
