Jada Pinkett Smith slams Golden Globes for 'Girls Trip' movie snub
UPI News Service, 12/14/2017
Jada Pinkett Smith thinks her film "Girls Trip" should be among the 2018 Golden Globe Awards nominees.
The 46-year-old actress said in a series of tweets Tuesday that the movie and its star Tiffany Haddish weren't nominated for any awards because of underlying "racism."
"I have so much to say on why @TiffanyHaddish was not nominated for a Globe... but I won't," she wrote. "Actually I will... here I go..."
Smith alleged the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which conducts the Golden Globes ceremonies, did not even watch "Girls Trip."
"'Girls Trip' was one of the most successful films this summer & Tiff was hands down the funniest person on screen in 2017 and we couldn't get eyes on the film or a press conference. How could a nom happen & how much more critical acclaim must a movie have to simply get a screening?" the star wrote.
