Tiffany Haddish is glad that her friends and fans supported her following her failure to receive a nod from the Golden Globes. Celebrity Insider reported yesterday that upon hearing the news, Jada Pinkett-Smith went on social media to condemn the committee’s choice of submissions, notably its lack of ethnic diversity.
The 38-year-old star of Girls Trip, Haddish, thanked all of her fans for the “love and support.” The Hollywood actress said she isn’t privy to the idea of “snubs” and isn’t “nasty like that,” but she loves Pinkett-Smith either way.

Yesterday, Jada Pinkett-Smith went on social media to vent about the Golden Globes and its alleged refusal to nominate ethnic minorities. Additionally, the star slammed the Hollywood Foreign Press for supposedly ignoring the movie.
The wife of Will Smith said she wasn’t bothered by the fact that they didn’t get a nomination; it was that the HFP refused to even look at the movie.
She claimed Girls Trip was “one of the most successful films” of the summer of 2017, and Tiffany shined like a star in her – what’s been called – breakout role.
Smith stated the movie was widely praised by critics and audiences alike, so the fact it didn’t get a screening is a travesty. Jada went on to point to the irony of the Golden Globes asking Haddish to present at the awards but not getting a nomination.
From Pinkett-Smith’s perspective, no one is trying to “shame” the committees who decide which performer gets the nomination; it’s more about pointing to the necessity to update an “antiquated” structure.
As you may know, Jada has been very vocal in the past over the lack of “diversity,” in the Hollywood award’s ceremonies. She threatened to boycott the Oscars in 2016. Chris Rock had a skit regarding Jada where he pointed to the irony of Smith boycotting an event to which she wasn’t invited.
