Jennifer Lopez breaks down in tears after Oscars snub for film Hustlers in new doc trailer

Jennifer Lopez bursts into tears after being snubbed by the Academy and denied an Oscar nomination, in the new trailer of her upcoming Netflix documentary Halftime.

The 52 year old is shown breaking down in tears as she finds out she hasn't made the shortlist for her star turn in Hustlers. The doc follows the star as she is preparing for the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime show.

Upon Hustlers' release, Jennifer was widely praised for her portrayal of New York City stripper Ramona.

The Oscar wasn't meant to be though, as the multi-talented star was rejected by the Academy in early 2020, leaving he visibly upset in bed after hearing the news.

“It was hard. I just had a very low self esteem,” Jennifer is heard saying in a voiceover.

The Get Right singer admitted that she felt she needed to rethink her Hollywood career after the Oscars snub as she added: “I had to really figure out who I was and believe in that and not believe in anything else.”

Jennifer told Elle in 2021: “[My production partner] Elaine made a post where she listed all the things I had been nominated for and won that season. And when it came to the Oscars, it was so obviously absent. It was a sting.


"I was like, 'Okay, when you’re supposedly in everybody else’s mind supposed to be nominated and you’re not, what does that mean?'

“It came to a point where I was like, 'This is not why I do this.' I don’t do this to have 10 Oscars sitting on my mantel or 20 Grammys."'

Jennifer’s fiancé Ben Affleck also shows up briefly in the new doc trailer as the topic of trolls and bad press the star has experienced is addressed.

The couple reunited in 2021 after ending their relationship initially 20 years prior due to too much public scrutiny among other reasons.

“I asked her, doesn't this bother you?,” Ben said about Jennifer in the clip before he shared that she told him in response: "I expected this."

Halftime is directed by Amanda Micheli and is set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on the 8 June before being released on Netflix on 14 June.
