    But unfortunately, Jennifer didn't get nominated. And now she's opening up about how she felt over the snub.

    “I was sad; I was a little sad because there was a lot of buildup to it," she said during Oprah’s 2020 Vision Tour.

    "There were so many articles; I got so many good notices — more than ever in my career," she said. "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,'" Jennifer said.

    "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."

    Well, if it helps, we all thought you deserved it, Jen. Keep starring in great movies!
