Mary J. Blige is p’ed off that she didn’t get an Oscar nomination for the upcoming 84th Annual Academy Awards. Many people thought Mary was a shoe-in for the Best Original Song category for “The Living Proof,” the ballad she penned for The Help.
She vented her frustrations on Twitter. Check out her tweet below:
The singer was understandably disappointed by the snub, especially since the category typically has four to five nominees, and this year only two songs were nominated. Sergio Mendes and Carlinhos Brown were recognized for “Real in Rio” from the animated film Rio and Bret McKenzie received a nod for “Man or Muppet” from The Muppets.
Blige was previously nominated at this year’s Golden Globes, but lost in the category to Madonna. Does Mary have a right to be upset, or should she just get over herself?
