For her work on "Hustlers," Jennifer Lopez won the Best Supporting Actress of the Year award at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards Ceremony. However, she didn't win the Golden Globes and Critics' Choice Awards.


Recently, Us Weekly and other reporters asked Lopez if she thinks critics have been in her corner all through her acting profession. 

The multi-talented artist, who is currently engaged to former New York Yankees baseball player Alex Rodriguez, teased, "What do you think?"

Lopez added, "From the beginning, I feel like people took me seriously as an actress, and that was great."

She continued that she doesn't think about that part of it that much and that being appreciated is extremely wonderful yet nerve-wracking as well.

Lopez, who became the first Latin actress to earn over US$1 million for a film, elaborated that she is simply trying to be really upbeat and be really in the moment.


At the LAFCA ceremony, "Hustlers" director Lorene Scafaria told Us Weekly that she was hoping Lopez would receive a nomination for the upcoming Academy Award.

Unfortunately, Lopez was snubbed once again. Both "Hustlers" and the actress were nowhere to be found among the honorees at the 92nd annual Academy Awards nominations.

Lopez flaunted her typically dazzling looks when she went to the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards on January 11.


"Hustlers" also stars Constance Wu, Julia Stiles, Mette Towley, Wai Ching Ho, Emma Batiz, Vanessa Aspillaga, Jay Oakerson, and Trace Lysette, according to IMDB.

As reported by CNN, the psychological thriller film "Joker" led among nominated films with 11.

Competing for the best picture award this year are "Ford v Ferrari," "The Irishman," "Jojo Rabbit," "Joker," "Little Women," "Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood," "Marriage Story," "Parasite" and "1917."


Meanwhile, Lopez flaunted her typically dazzling looks when she went to the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards on January 11, as reported by Daily Mail.

She was joined by different champs of the prestigious association's awards at the star-studded event.

Lopez, who is regarded as the most influential Latin performer in the United States, looked incredible in her pale cyan dress as she hit the red carpet. 

The outfit highlighted a low-cut front that reached down to her navel and displayed her cleavage. 

The "I'm Real" singer styled her hair tied back in a tight bun with curled strands. She completed her look with a sparkling gold clutch.
