Following the announcement of the nominees for the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday, Dec. 11, Pinkett-Smith took to Twitter to call out the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for not recognizing Haddish's performance in the movie. Despite drawing in millions at the box office worldwide and making history with it's all black female-led cast, it didn't do enough to gain one nomination at the prestigious Golden Globe Awards - and Jada Pinkett Smith is not happy about it. The actress claims that members of the Hollywood Foreign Press failed to show up to both private screenings of the film and press conferences in support of the movie. In a series of tweets, Smith expressed her frustrations with the entire Hollywood system.
Haddish's omission from the Best Supporting Actress category set off some anger in the Twittersphere on Monday, and Smith, who was one of the most vocal celebrity voices to elevate the #OscarsSoWhite movement during 2016, originally only offered her brief thoughts about the situation.

The Menace II Society actress expressed how she is baffled by the Golden Globes for having the audacity to invite her breakout costar to present at the award ceremony concluding the most probable objective behind the maltreatment is nothing other than pure racism.
"This isn't about shaming, this is about the need for discussion of an antiquated system", she continued.
"How could a nom happen & how much more critical acclaim must a movie have to simply get a screening?" The actress pointed out that because Get Out "is considered a comedy. illuminates the depths of the sunken place. for real". It's worth noting that Jordan Peele, the director of Get Out, a genre movie that became a sensation, was snubbed for a Golden Globe nod. "Moments like this occur so that we have an opportunity to discuss, recreate and regenerate old paradigms".
Speaking on her Twitter last night, Jada Pinkett said it's neither a fluke, nor fair.
