The Golden Globes nominations are out, and for some reason, breakout star Tiffany Haddish was snubbed majorly.

Haddish wowed audiences with her performance in Girls Trip, alongside Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, and Jada Pinkett Smith. And yet her name wasn’t on the list of nominations, and her famous co-star Smith isn’t going to stand for it.

–No Golden Globe love for Jordan Peele or Dee Rees?–

“I have so much to say on why @TiffanyHaddish was not nominated for a Globe… but I won’t,” she wrote on Twitter after the nominations were announced.

I’m not upset about @TiffanyHaddish or @GirlsTripMovie not getting a nom… I’m discouraged about the fact that the Hollywood Foreign Press/@goldenglobes wouldn’t even WATCH the movie.”

“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. How could a nom happen & how much more critical acclaim must a movie have to simply get a screening?” she added.

“But yet… Tiff has been asked to present at their ceremony. This isn’t about shaming, this is about the need for discussion of an antiquated system.”

Variety reporter Kris Tapley responded to Pinkett-Smith’s tweets by clarifying there was an official screening on July 18th for the HFPA, and they were also invited to the premiere.
