Jada Pinkett-Smith Issues Tweet Storm About Tiffany Haddish’s Golden Globes Snub

It can be hard to put your finger exactly on why any actor or actress gets snubbed for an award nomination, unless you’re Jada Pinkett-Smith.

On Monday night, Pinkett-Smith tweeted that she knew why 2017’s best actress and new queer icon Tiffany Haddishwas snubbed for a Golden Globe for her amazing turn in Girls Trip.

Pinkett-Smith said she’d keep it a secret. But, as of Wednesday morning, the actress broke her silence on Twitter and decided to speak 👏🏽 on 👏🏽 it. According to Smith’s Twitter, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association didn’t even watch Girls Trip or consider it for awards attention.

Pinkett-Smith also pointed out that, despite Haddish’s snub, she has been asked to be a part of the ceremony.

Pinkett-Smith also said that it’s hard to boil the argument down to “racism” and is more about addressing what the actress called an “antiquated system” that doesn’t reward certain films.

Finally, Pinkett-Smith took umbrage at the fact that movies like The Big Sick were left out of the conversation and a film like Get Out was nominated in comedy/musical categories. (The director, Jordan Peele, along with Universal and the production company submitted the film in the comedy categories.)

Pinkett-Smith ended the tweet storm by saying this is an “opportunity to discuss, recreate and regenerate old paradigms.”

“It’s all about growth,” she added. “Love.”
