Jennifer Lopez was overcome with emotion after receiving her first-ever nomination for the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Wednesday.
The singer/actress was shortlisted for the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role prize for her performance as Ramona on box office hit Hustlers, and the star took to Twitter to thank the organisation for the recognition.
“I don’t think I’ve ever been nominated for a SAG award before,” she said in a video, while working out at the gym.
Holding back tears, the star added: “So excited and so humble to be recognised by my fellow actors out there. You know, acting was my first love along with dancing and I just can’t believe all of this is happening.
“To all the struggling actors out there, don’t give up! It could happen. It’s happening. Thank you so much. I feel like I already won, thank you.”
It’s been a successful week for the Love Don’t Cost A Thing hitmaker, who was also shortlisted for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture at the 2020 Golden Globes – her first nod in 20 years – for her celebrated performance alongside Constance Wu, Cardi B, and Lizzo.
The Golden Globes take place 5 January while the SAG Awards are held 19 January.
