Salma Hayek always attends WHY?

Honey, I’m sick and tired of seeing Jennifer Lopez at the Oscars and on American Idol.March 21, 2015 at 5:46 pm #183039
It seem to me that you are not aware that John Travolta is a two-time Oscar-nominee actor and Salma Hayek is an Oscar-nominee actress.
They have all the right to attend if they are invited.March 21, 2015 at 6:09 pm #183040
Jennifer Lopez is one of the most annoying and talentless sex symbols in music and movies… though her song “On the Floor” is decent.March 21, 2015 at 7:39 pm #183041
RatingsMarch 21, 2015 at 8:00 pm #183042
Because her shitty movies usually come out during Jan/Feb/MarMarch 21, 2015 at 8:33 pm #183043
It’s probably ratings. But it’s not like she presents acting or screenplay Oscars because she usually presents the tech ones like costume design and best score.March 21, 2015 at 8:42 pm #183044
She looks nice. She’s nice to look at. I mean maybe people of the Academy adore Maid in Manhattan.March 21, 2015 at 9:43 pm #183045
Diversity: there aren’t that many presenters who are Latina.March 21, 2015 at 9:45 pm #183046
Also she says yes. A lot of people don’t regularly agree to go to this thing or couldn’t be bothered. She’s someone who has developed a go to reputation and usually acquits herself well and is one less headache for the producers of this thing.March 21, 2015 at 11:34 pm #183047
John Travolta is a Hollywood icon – you don’t need to be a fan of him, but he is Vincent Vega, Chilli Palmer, Danny Zuko, Tony Manero and Edna Turnblad. He helped turn the movie musical back into something relevant TWICE (the 1970s and 2000s). He is a two-time Oscar nominee (should have won for Pulp Fiction) and if you think about it, all three years he has presented recently, it has been musical/song-themed moments, and of course they could get Ansel Elgort or Jessica Chastain to present that, but I think they do try and make it interesting to have a film musical icon present it (it doesn’t need to be him every year though) and I see no problem with it – John is easy-going, friendly and is willing to present, so what? He is recognizable and part of film history. Why shouldn’t he present? Maybe he can try and wear a different suit though. If the whole Adele Dazeem thing didn’t happen, no one would be worried about this
Same for Salma – she is a sex symbol AND an awesome actress. She’s been nominated before, her husband is a fashion designer for many of the ladies there, and she’s a recognizable actress. I don’t see why she shouldn’t be thereMarch 22, 2015 at 3:20 am #183048
Yes. So i’m fine with Salma and Travolta.
BUT WHY DOES JENNIFER LOPEZ ATTEND EVEEY YEAR???????March 22, 2015 at 3:21 am #183049
Ok. So i just ask this : Why doesn’t Eva Mendes attend Oscar every year but J.Lo does???? J.Lo won RAZZIEssMarch 22, 2015 at 4:37 am #183050
Oh we can find a bunch of people who’s attending & presenting and are nowhere near Oscar-worthy level. Who cares? They are invited by the Academy and accepting the honor to present a category. I would accept the honor as well. It’s not their fault.March 22, 2015 at 7:38 am #183051
She’s a star. The show needs stars. Simple as that. And like others have said, she says yes. Part of her brand and fame is obviously to show up , wow everybody with her looks and fashion. What better way to do it than the Oscars, Globes and Grammys. And yes, her bad movies usually come out near the Oscars and Globes, so I’m pretty sure her people ask for her to present.
We don’t see that many iconic legend super famous people present at the Oscars, and several of those who do don’t walk the red carpet. This year you had Ansel Elgort, Margot Robbie, Miles Teller, Dakota Johnson, David Oyelowo presenting because their movies were coming out or they just happened to finally be in an Oscar movie, in the middle of that the whatever hundred of millions of people who watch the Oscars need a huge star. Jennifer Lopez is that star. John Travolta even more so. Even Salma Hayek qualifies.
Take Jessica Chastain for example. Nobody will say she didn’t deserve to be invited this year. But lets be real, she’s a huge adored A list star on GoldDerby and for directors and casting agents. The majority of americans might be like “is she the girl from….where?”. She’s not necessarily recognizable from her two biggest hits, one of them already more than forgotten (Mama). So before and after Chastain, Oyelowo and Terrence Howard (forgotten by some, others never knew him, Empire hasn’t premired in other countries yet) for the general public and specially the people around the world, the show needs a Travolta, a Lopez, a Hayek and an Avenger.
The Academy Awards need Jennifer Lopez as much as she needs that appearance. And Eva Mendez is not even close to the “latina” star Jennifer Lopez is.
