If you haven’t caught on by now, or by chance seen her severely underrated 2002 thriller, Jennifer Lopez is ... Enough.
Jennifer Lopez Finally Addresses That Oscars Snub: I Don’t Need This Award To Tell Me I’m Enough
And while many fans might still feel personally slighted over her Oscars snub, rest assured that J-Lo herself is doing just fine and actually might be all the better for it.
The multi-talented star turned in the performance of her career in Lorene Scafaria’s fact-based drama Hustlers last year, but failed to score an Academy Award nomination, leaving her out in the cold without the now-iconic fur coat she wore in the film.But the hustle isn’t all about the reward for Jennifer, who’s finally speaking out about how she felt about the snub as other stars like Kathy Bates, Laura Dern, Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh and Margot Robbie competed for Oscars glory. 
“I was a little sad because there was a lot of buildup to it. There were so many articles,” she told Oprah Winfrey on stage Saturday in Los Angeles during the media mogul’s 2020 Vision Tour, according to Variety.
“I got so many good notices — more than ever in my career — and there was a lot of ‘She’s going to get nominated for an Oscar. It’s going to happen; if she doesn’t, you’re crazy.’”Jennifer said she “felt like I let everyone down a little bit,” given how hard the Hustlers team had worked, despite securing nominations at the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards and Indie Spirit Awards.
“I’m reading all the articles going, ‘Oh my god, could this happen?’ And then it didn’t and I was like, ‘Ouch.’ It was a little bit of a letdown,” she added.READ MORE: Pop!

She is Jennifer Lopez, after all.
“You realise you want people’s validation. You want people to say you did a good job, and I realised, ‘No, you don’t need that. You do this because you love it,’” she said. “I don’t need this award to tell me I’m enough.”
Enough, in case you missed it, was the Hollywood adaptation of a bestseller about an abused wife who learns to fight back. It earned generally negative reviews, even though Jennifer’s starring performance won praise. 
And it doesn’t look like she’s rid of the acting bug just yet, as she’s readying a return to her rom-com roots.
The star has already finished filming Marry Me alongside Owen Wilson, in which she’ll play – now, this is a bit of a stretch – a pop superstar.
