It should have also included an Oscar nomination, but it didn’t come to fruition.
At the beginning of the documentary, the singer shares about being cast in Hustlers. She also explains why the projects are so different.
The actress said, ‘It was amazing when I got the hustler. It was rough. There was content. And that’s what I’ve been fighting for in my career.’
As the documentary progressed, it showed the film’s premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2019.
“I really thought I had a chance,” Lopez said in a confession. I felt like I had let everyone down.’
However, as he got closer to the Oscar nomination, Lopez seemed to be noticeably more emotional.
