Jennifer Lopez opened up on her snub at this year’s Oscars during a discussion with Oprah Winfrey, admitting she felt disappointed about not getting nominated.

The 50-year-old star sat down with Oprah Winfrey as part of her “Oprah’s 2020 Vision” tour on Sunday where she discussed her incredibly eventful year, which included the release of “Hustlers,” her performance at the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime show, a tour and an impending wedding with former MLB player Alex Rodriguez. – via FOX News

“I was sad, I was a little sad because there was a lot of buildup to it,” the star told Winfrey at the Los Angeles event (via The Hollywood Reporter). “There were so many articles, 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 it doesn’t you’re crazy.’ 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. Also, I felt like my whole team — most of my team has been with me for years, 20, 25 years — and I think they had a lot of hopes on that and they wanted it, too, so I felt like I let everyone down a little bit.” Via FOX News
