"Girls Trip was one of the most successful films this summer & Tiff was hands down the funniest person on screen in 2017 and we couldn't get eyes on the film or a press conference", Pinkett Smith wrote.

Just as the Grammy's had a few people speaking out on this year's nominations, the Golden Globes, of course, has garnered some public opinions on its list of nominees. She also said that she would not "invalidate all the many journalist [s] and people from all walks of life who have supported this movie by defining the [omission] as simply ... racism".

Finally, Tiffany Haddish should not only be nominated for a Golden Globe but she should also be leaving with an actual award. "I'm discouraged about the fact that the Hollywood Foreign Press/@goldenglobes wouldn't even WATCH the movie", she said.

However, special screenings and press conferences for HFPA members are arranged by the body throughout the year. Not a single woman of color was nominated for an acting award at the 73rd Golden Globes in 2016, while three were nominated a year ago. Jada Pinkett Smith, who stars in the film alongside Queen Latifah, Regina Hall and Tiffany Haddish, shared her sentiments about the snub on Twitter -particularly Haddish not being nominated for her standout performance. Originally, this award was given to up-and-coming actors and has evolved into an award for celebrity children, this year's victor being Dwayne Johnson's daughter Simone.

Unlike with Coutinho, Monaco are not only eliminated from the Champions League, but out of Europe altogether. Given their troubles this year, it would not be too surprising if Lemar was open to moving on in January.

Girls Trip, released July 21, is still the highest grossing adult comedy of 2017. And in Nov., Haddish made TV history by becoming the first black female comedian to host Saturday Night Live. The latter movie was nominated for best picture in the comedy or musical category, despite the fact that it has been described most often as a "thriller", while the former wasn't nominated in any category.

Girls Trip had stirred major buzz after it premiered.

While Haddish has yet to respond to the news on social media, her co-star Smith intends to remain vocal about the issue and hopes this will be a vehicle in the conversation moving forward. But the track record of reviews and praise proves otherwise, which is what makes the situation all the more disappointing.
