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

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.
