Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez & More: A History of Female Pop Stars Overlooked by Oscars

When the 2022 Oscar nominations were unveiled last week, a lot of fans were surprised that Lady Gaga‘s buzzy performance in House of Gucci didn’t make the cut. And their confusion didn’t come out of nowhere: Gaga’s turn as Patrizia Reggiani in the Ridley Scott-directed film had already garnered her acting nominations with the Screen Actors Guild, the BAFTAs, the Critics’ Choice Awards, the Golden Globes and even a win for best actress from the New York Film Critics Circle.

But Gaga is hardly the first female pop star to be overlooked by the Academy (her 2019 double-nomination for lead actress and best original song for A Star Is Born notwithstanding). The snub brought to mind Jennifer Lopez‘s omission from the 2020 Oscar nods, when she was thought to be a strong contender for her performance as a veteran exotic dancer in Hustlers. Oh, and there’s another female musician whose name was left on the cutting-room floor just this year: Haim‘s Alana Haim was a possible best supporting actress nominee for her debut film role in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Licorice Pizza.

On the latest Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, Katie & Keith (with an expert assist from Billboard awards editor Paul Grein!) are digging into the history of our favorite pop divas being passed over by the Oscars.
