Jada Pinkett Smith Calls Out Golden Globes After Tiffany Haddish Snubbed, Says HFPA Wouldn't Watch 'Girls Trip'

Jada Pinkett Smith is speaking out about the need for Hollywood to “expand its concepts of race, gender equality and inclusion in regard to its perceptions of art across the board.”

In particular, Jada spoke out on Twitter after her co-star Tiffany Haddish wasn’t given a nomination for Girls Trip, Get Out being considered in the comedy category, and The Big Sick being snubbed.

“I’m not upset about @TiffanyHaddish or @GirlsTripMovie not getting a nom… I’m discouraged about the fact that the Hollywood Foreign Press/@goldenglobes wouldn’t even WATCH the movie,” Jada revealed. “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?”

She also revealed that as much as the film couldn’t get a screening, they did ask Tiffany to present at the show.

Jada famously spoke out about the #OscarsSoWhite movement and boycotted the ceremony in 2016.

  • Just Saying

    Tiffany Haddish played the stereotype ghetto “ratched” loud black girl, there is one of those is every Tyler Perry movie, want those nominated too?

  • cafeast

    Lunatic. The most off putting creature in hollywood right now. Just vile. Closet case/child profiteer.

  • cafeast

    Oh no, all these idiots are soooo much better than that wretch tyler perry! He is an embarrassment! Meanwhile, all this bitch does is to work on her angry belligerent black bitch stereotype.
    All do every horrible thing they do, then say “oh but we are not tyler perry, what we do is not bad, he is the bad egg!”
    Their hypocrisy is astonishing.

  • Amber

    Regardless of how you feel about the film personally, she’s right.

  • Casey C

    clearly she IS upset or she wouldn’t go on her annual tirade

  • Penny

    Jada Pinkett Smith has got to be on drugs or something. Girls got crazy eyes for sure! Will Smith needs to get her checked into rehab somewhere. And who the heck saw this movie anyway? 3 people? It looked like a movie that would go straight to video after 2 days & 3 people in the theatre. Box office flop!

    You’re so gross. There is nothing belligerent about her post. Your constant negativity and hatred is what’s astonishing.

    Comedies don’t usually get much recognition compared to the dramas. That said, I wasn’t too interested in watching Girls Trip, but if I was a voter, I’d try to watch as much as I could, especially those that were wide releases. I am weirded out that Get Out was put in a Comedy category too.

  • joshemerson

    Girls Trip was a great movie, but to make this about racism is so ridiculously stupid. Most R rated comedies aren’t recognized by award shows, white or black. Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids was the rare exception. I actually think that’s wrong and comedies should be recognized more, but this has nothing to do with race.

    She definitely seems more vocal about these things than Will, yet he seems to be the more successful of the two.

  • SquidBillie

    Just shut up, bitch. Always whining when someone she knows doesn’t get nominated. It’s not an affirmative action program, they can nominate whoever and whatever they want. Girls Trip Movie? Really?

  • SquidBillie

    Because she over acts in every movie she’s in.

  • Nurse Shadie

    While it’s unfortunate that Haddish wasn’t recognized by the golden globes, she was in fact by the critics choice awards which is more notable in the film community. Complaints like this somewhat invalidate the films that are nominated. Mary j. Blige, Octavia Spencer, Hong Chau, Laurie Metcalf, and Allison Janney were nominated on this category and it’s hard to say that one shouldn’t be recognized just so someone else should be.

    It was foul trashy garbage-done before. Yawn.

  • Esmerelda Nan

    It was a crappy tramp film-awards for gross sex jokes? Uh, no. Black actors can do better than this humiliating tripe.

  • Esmerelda Nan

    Um -look at her idiot kids. ’nuff said.

  • MilesAndChloe Gaming & More

    Jada is always sour grapes. There are only a few nominees in each category. Stop making everything a race issue. Who is best is a subjective opinion. Whoever is choosing the nominees is revealing their particular taste. Quit complaining and accept the outcome of the voting. It’s not ever what everyone agrees on. It’s silly anyway. There are many great performances but one person is picked as a “winner”. Many great performances don’t win awards but that doesn’t lessen their greatness.
