Things We Saw Today: Jada Pinkett Smith Calls Out the Hollywood Foreign Press For Refusing to Even Watch Girls Trip

Recommended Videos

There were plenty of snubs in the Golden Globes nominations, but Jada Pinkett-Smith has some words for the Hollywood Foreign Press specifically regarding Girls Trip. Not only are a lot of people upset over the lack of nominations for the movie and Tiffany Haddish–”hands down the funniest person on screen in 2017″–in particular, but Pinkett-Smith says she couldn’t even get voters to watch the movie. She calls out the “antiquated system” that has trouble recognizing greatness in non-white, non-male works, and she points to other snubbed movies as more evidence.

Read the whole thread on Twitter and then go treat yourself to a Girls Trip rewatch.
