Jada Pinkett Smith slams Golden Globes

(The Golden Globes website includes galleries of the outfits stars wore to those various press conferences throughout the year, by the way.) Public rules don't specifically touch on these except for the fact that such events are forbidden during the period between when nominations are announced and when final votes are due.

Pinkett Smith condemned the award show's voters, the enigmatic Hollywood Foreign Press Association, for snubbing Haddish and their movie, saying they failed to watch "Girls Trip" while stressing the film industry is in need of a systemic change. One notable person in particular has some thoughts on the matter: Haddish's Girls Trip co-star, Jada Pinkett Smith, which she shared on social media today.

11, 2017, Jada Pinkett Smith took to Twitter to criticize the annual award ceremony for its many snubs, which she believes was, in part, racially motivated.

Jada Pinkett Smith is not taking the omission of her film and its breakout star (Tiffany Haddish) from Monday's Golden Globe nominations lightly.

Just as the Grammy's had a few people speaking out on this year's nominations, the Golden Globes, of course, has garnered some public opinions on its list of nominees. Twenty hours later she decided she actually did have more to say.

"I'm not upset about @TiffanyHaddish or @GirlsTripMovie not getting a nom..."

"Girls Trip" not only received high praise from critics, but it also became the first comedy of the year to pass the $100 million mark at the box office. She wrote, "And I dare not invalidate all the many journalist and people from all walks of life who have supported this movie by defining the issue as simply. racism".

The actress continued her condemnation of the Globes by relating their nominations to Hollywood at large, tweeting, "Hollywood has systems in place that must learn to expand its concepts of race, gender equality and inclusion in regard to its perceptions of art across the board".

For the Golden Globes, this year's best/supporting actress nominations showcase a somewhat more racially diverse group of actors than previous years. "Moments like this occur so that we have an opportunity to discuss, recreate and regenerate old paradigms".
