The nominations for the 75th annual Golden Globes were announced Monday, (Dec.11) and a lot of our favorites earned the chance to walk home with the coveted award.
Variety's Kristopher Tapley later reported, that HFPA members did receive screeners and an invitation to the film's premiere however, although a press conference for the film never happened. Co-star Jada Pinkett Smith thinks she knows: Golden Globes voters didn't even see it.
Pinkett Smith continued to point out The Big Sick's snub, and called attention to Get Out being nominated as a comedy. No one made us laugh harder this year than Haddish, and as the star herself has said, she ready.
"Actually I will. Here we go." she tweeted.
When the Golden Globes 2018 nominees were revealed on Monday (December 11), there was nearly immediate backlash over the list's lack of diversity.
"I'm not upset about Tiffany Haddish or "Girls Trip" not getting a nom". "The success of GIRLS TRIP, the first R-rated film starring an all Black female cast to surpass $100 million, and GET OUT, Jordan Peele's directorial debut which surpassed $250 million worldwide, prove just how viable Black films are across the board. I'm discouraged about the fact that the Hollywood Foreign Press/@goldenglobes wouldn't even WATCH the movie". "This isn't about shaming, this is about the need for discussion of an antiquated system", the actress wrote, calling Haddish's snub an act of racism.
In the next few minutes she tweeted: 'How could a nom happen & how much more critical acclaim must a movie have to simply get a screening?'
Girls Trip, released July 21, is still the highest grossing adult comedy of 2017.
While it's unlikely that any of this conversation will change the Golden Globe nominees this year, hopefully speaking out will push the Oscars to be more considerate when it comes to its nominations this year. She also was named best supporting actress last month by the New York Film Critics Circle.
The actress concluded, "Moments like this occur so that we have an opportunity to discuss, recreate and regenerate old paradigms".
