Because all three of them were in massive Oscar vehicles. Can we please stop acting like a stripper comedy will come close to any of these, no matter how enjoyable it is ?
Mo’Nique was a comedian who crossed over to drama and delivered a heart-wrenching, powerful performance in an acclaimed drama. Gaga and Mary J Blige are both respected musicians (way moreso than Jlo) who gave decent-to-good dramatic performances in Oscar players. Whatever Jlo is doing is not comparable
Hustlers was developed by Annapurna.
Megan Ellison is an executive producer.
Adam McKay & Will Ferrell are producers.
It’s been chosen as an official selection at TIFF and has been screened for HFPA.
Reporters at Variety, EW & Vanity Fair have seen it and say the movie’s great and JLo’s Oscar worthy in it.
JLo is beautiful, successful and likable.
She’s in a film based on a true story playing a real person.
The movie’s tracking to be a big box office hit.
Isn’t that exactly how Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock & Reese Witherspoon won their Oscars?
I’m not saying she’s guaranteed to win, but she’s a viable contender for a nomination in a wide open year.August 29, 2019 at 2:33 am #1203045790
“Oscar nominee Jennifer Lopez” has an unrealistic sound to it, unless it’s for Original Song. She has a big hill to climb to overcome all kinds of prejudice. Not fair for her of course if she turns in a great performance.
Lady Gaga and Mary J Blige are Oscar nominated actresses & Monique is an Oscar winning actress. If the performance is there, then why not JLo?August 5, 2019 at 10:36 am #1203011383

That would have made a perfect series finale especially with the callback to the ending of the pilot. Hopefully the writers have some great material planned for the final season!May 6, 2019 at 7:38 am #1202882396
Jackie MacInnes Wood beat Maura West and Heather Tom for an acting award? On what planet is she in the same league as those dynamos?
This is another Mary Beth Evans situation. I could have seen perennial nominees West, Tom and Wright pick up another trophy for typically strong work. I could have seen newbie Miller win her first Emmy on her second straight nomination for magnetic work that’s far beyond her years. But I thought Wood had absolutely no chance to win and was dead last. What were the voters smoking?
Benard, Gail, Watson and Erin all had the reels and performances to back up their wins even though I personally might have selected other winners.
Guest and Younger Actor both had crap nominees so no matter who won, it would have been groan-worthy. It’s a real shame that Pettis won for the cop shooting story and not Moss, when Moss was the younger actor who really carried that story. But I can’t say I really would have preferred any of the other nominees winning. Adams is technically a better actor but not by much. The only guest nominee more deserving than Bethune was Mansi and she really should have been competing in supporting anyway.
It’s such a shame dePaiva still hasn’t won her long overdue Emmy. It’s crazy because as much as I prefer her work on OLTL, she had no shot of winning on her only OLTL nomination. But I think she easily should have won for both of her DAYS nominations. I don’t know what has to happen for her to finally win.May 5, 2019 at 5:39 pm #1202881221
Y&R won directing too.April 12, 2019 at 11:26 am #1202849556
I hope they completely revamp the character. I want psycho Nina back that got up out of her wheelchair and trashed Silas’ house and cut a baby right out of Ava’s stomach. Nina’s been a complete and total waste of space ever since she got involved with Valentin.April 10, 2019 at 10:05 am #1202846985
Yeah, Laura’s been way too fond of Sonny and Carly the last few years. I remember her liking Sonny when Luke and Laura first returned to Port Charles in the 90’s but that dynamic changed quite a bit over the years. She barely tolerated him by the end of the 90’s and thought he was scum in the 00’s.April 4, 2019 at 8:27 am #1202839776
The anniversary episode was nice but I wish there had been more flashbacks and it would have been nice to have a true tribute to Lee & Gail (& their portrayers) with Scotty front and center. Not even one flashback of Gail with dialogue? How would newer viewers even know who’s will is being read. Absolutely no reason for Sonny, Carly & Julian to be involved. And it was all a little too schmaltzy and saccharine for my tastes.April 3, 2019 at 9:49 am #1202838625
No, he was nominated for supporting just last year. I don’t know if he submitted lead or supporting this year. He should have been an easy prenom in either category with his scenes of regaining his memory at Marlena’s wedding/shooting. I don’t know why they snubbed him. Maybe he chose other scenes that weren’t as strong.March 20, 2019 at 1:06 pm #1202823459
Zamprogna was great during Nathan’s death and during the Sonny-centric what if episode where Dante was a mobster dating Sam and Sonny was a cop. He also had his final scenes with Lulu before he was written off. The writing wasn’t very good but his performance was typically strong.March 20, 2019 at 11:28 am #1202823314
No Y&R in lead actress is shocking.
A ton of DAYS acting noms!
Shockingly low number of Y&R acting noms.
I really thought Benard would never be nominated again.
Lead Actor is crazy competitive this year. I could see any of the 5 winning if they submit their best material.
So happy for DePaiva but winning is gonna be tough. Her category’s stacked.
So happy Greg Rikaart got nommed for DAYS. I don’t think he can win but still a fun, deserved nom.
I can’t believe Stafford and Storms were left off for Nathan’s death. They were both stellar. What did Vernee Watson do to take a slot over Storms?March 20, 2019 at 11:16 am #1202823275

I loved Finola’s scenes with Robin referenced above. She also had strong scenes trying to save Finn from Faison and revealing her secret to Robert from the beginning of the year. Plus scenes from the night of the Nurses’ Ball where Anna stops Jason from shooting Peter by revealing that Peter is her son.
I’d suggest she stay away from any scenes that feature Peter and Valentin too heavily. The actors playing Peter and Valentin are miscast and have poor chemistry with her.
She should put her best foot forward and submit material with long time scene partners Rogers, Hove & McCullogh. I especially loved her work during Faison’s return. Anna was so tightly wound and was becoming completely undone and Finola played the hell out of it. She was absolutely fantastic during the first half of the year.February 7, 2019 at 9:53 am #1202764292
I think a picture of Strasser getting her makeup done with Konefal at the DAYS studio would qualify as confirmation.
I wonder if this is a full-time role or just a guest spot as most of the shows have been doing lately. But I’m ecstatic either way. I’ll take as much of the massively underrated Strasser as I can get!
I hope she gets to work with Kassie DePaiva. Does Eve have an aunt that Strasser can play?
