    My only concern about her locking the nomination down is the fact that STX isn’t going to have much money to spend campaigning for her. She’s not going to have much of a studio push.

    Best believe J.Lo will work the industry circuit. She and Laura Dern are going to campaign hard. This should be fun.

    She’ll pay for the whole thing herself if necessary. And the best part, is that she has the money for it. If she gets confirmation that she’s actually a real contender in a few weeks when the dust settles, the movie’s out for a while, it becomes a hit or not, I doubt STX’s money will stop her.

    If Sally Kirkland and Melissa Leo have the money to do it, so can JLo.

    Ok so “Hustlers” is one of the biggest surprises of 2019. It’s so much more than a basic “stripper” movie. It deals with themes of class, greed, and loyalty.

    The direction is top notch. The screenplay is dramatic yet still very funny. The ensemble is absolutely phenomenal.

    Constance Wu is the heart. She gives a strong lead performance. J.Lo deserves the acclaim and a nomination if it comes down to it. It’s a role tailor made for her.

    It’s an underdog story. I think audiences and voters will relate to that.

    J-Lo is the real deal. Believe that shit! Whether the Oscars bite or not remains to be seen, but I can at least envision a Globes nomination. The film itself was mostly good. Scorsese-lite, but Scafaria clearly has a directorial eye. Ramona needed a better ending arc (like OD’ing or something), but J-Lo stole the show whenever she was featured. Constance Wu was also memorable in this dramatic role. Cardi B. and Lizzo are mostly cameos. Audience I saw this with clapped at the end, so take that for what it’s worth (i.e., this is a major crowd-pleaser despite a kinda epilogue-y, downbeat ending). Enjoyed it and would recommmend others seeing the film.

    1. Buzz. Check.

    2. Box office hit. Check. (Almost? I think it can hit 100 mil.)

    3. Nominations for Jennifer. To be determined. (Please let this happen)

    Jennifer Lopez is already a superstar and Hustlers is going to make a lot of money so campaigning isn’t really an issue.

    $33 million the first week is so good! It’s already made more than its budget.

    I can’t imagine the box office dwindling in the coming weeks. The buzz is on fire.

    If the studio had more money, they’d push a campaign for Constance Wu and Jennifer. But it doesn’t appear likely.

    Jennifer definitely delivers the goods in this movie though.

    How the tide turns… some people waiting for Swift in that horror show that shall remain unnamed, but actually Lopez is the one one getting attention. If that happens, we’ll know what race will be the most mediatic. She’s already a member of the Academy, right?

    I could also see the media pushing this so hard that it deters people, especially the Academy. I can’t wait to see Hustlers and actually see what the hype is about, but I would be really shocked if she not only receives a nomination but wins.

    Anyway…

    Darlings, Stripper Lopez is getting nominated. I really hope she gives a classy performance and make me stan. I’d campaign for her. Otherwise, I will send troops to stop Hustlers’ FYC campaign.

    I was your Prime Minister once.
