Jada Pinkett-Smith Wasn't Pleased With Tiffany Haddish's Golden Globe Snub

Michele K. Short  Universal

Taking to Twitter, the Girls Trip star called out the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for looking over the film, and Pinkett Smith's co-star Tiffany Haddish, in its nomination process. Smith doesn't put any of the nominees (who are all white) down, and even says she's "not upset" Haddish or Girls Trip didn't get a nomination.

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.

UPDATE 12.12 6:30PM: After Smith' initial remarks, she followed up with several tweets explaining her frustrations with the Golden Globes committee.

Apple's latest iPhone X ads showcase Face ID, Portrait Lighting, more
Till now, Apple is only assembling its iPhone SE model here and wants to expand to cover its other products as well. It has already been over two years since the release of the iPhone 6s , so a battery replacement is necessary.

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?' On top of claiming that the Hollywood Foreign Press wouldn't even watch the film and that no screening was ever set up, she also said the fact The Big Sick wasn't nominated and that Get Out was nominated as a comedy belies a deeper problem with the system. This year, Mary J. Blige (Mudbound) and Octavia Spencer (The Shape of Water) both earned supporting actress nominations, while Vietnamese-American Hong Chau scored a nom for Downsizing. Viewers of Get Out would easily agree that if Rel's loved TSA character did not exist in the film, the project would have received different reviews.

Ironically, the Golden Globes awards a breakout star every year with its Miss Golden Globes Award, renamed Golden Globes Ambassador this year.

Like Haddish, "Girls Trip" - the highest-grossing comedy of 2017-did not receive a nomination during Monday's announcement. The latter movie was nominated for best picture in the comedy or musical category, despite the fact that it has been described most often as a "thriller", while the former wasn't nominated in any category. Peele, the film's writer and director, was not nominated for best director or screenplay. Her performance for Girls Trip was the funniest performance of 2017.

'Trump is Merely Bluffing' About Launching Strike Against North Korea
Moon is expected to focus on moving past the THAAD conflict and normalizing economic cooperation. A company executive declined to discuss the issue, the Times reports.

While Haddish has yet to respond to the news on social media, her co-star Smith intends to remain vocal about the issue and hopes this will be a vehicle in the conversation moving forward.

So as you can see, Tiffany isn't being completely overlooked this award season.

Trump campaign was offered access to WikiLeaks documents
An attorney for Trump Jr. told the Post that the email was one of "a ton of unsolicited emails like this on a variety of topics". Garten said the Trumps do not know Erickson or have any information about him other than what was included in the email.
