Jennifer Lopez was snubbed by the Academy Awards when her role in Hustlers was not rewarded with a nomination, but she didn’t let that steal her shine at an Oscars after party.
The musician showed up in a tight-fitting sparkly silver cocktail dress with a thigh-hair slit. She posted two photos of herself wearing it on Twitter with the caption, “Dance the night away, live your life and stay young on the floor,” which is a lyric from her 2011 collaboration “On the Floor” with Pit Bull.

Fans flocked to her mentions to comment on the look.
“Now all the Academy members regret they didn’t give you a nomination. But now they don’t deserve you,” one said.
“Girlll I love EVERYTHINGGG about this look. you look stunning as always. I want this dress loll,” another wrote.
“The most beautiful wonderful amazing stunning stylish and classy lady in the whole world,” a third added.
While Lopez missed out on an Oscar nomination, she was in attendance at the Independent Spirit Awards on Friday night. While walking the blue carpet, she was asked about the controversy surrounding her Super Bowl Halftime performance, which some people found inappropriate.
“Both of us are really respectful performers who are moms, who have kids, who are very conscious of what we do,” she said, speaking about herself and Shakira. “We did a show that I believe was a celebration of women and our Latino culture that was really well received.”
“And that small faction of people who want to be negative about it, it’s not something I can even let in because it was such an amazing night, and so many beautiful things came out of it,” she continued.
“The message of standing up for yourself, being a woman – that’s what I want to pass on to little girls. You’re strong, you’re beautiful — everything about you, be proud of it. I’m very proud of the performance that night.”
At a Super Bowl after party, she addressed those in attendance about the performance.
“I am grateful to all of you. I know how special it is to go out there and hold up and American flag and hold up a Puerto Rican flag and have my daughter sing with me,” she continued, “and to represent women and single moms and working moms and say, ‘This is what you can do. You can do anything you want to do.’
“That’s what I want to teach my daughters, and that’s what I want them to see, and that’s who I want them to become — strong, independent women who speak up for themselves,” Lopez said. “The message tonight was you can use your voice. Get loud. Speak up. Stand up for yourself. Just have the strength — sometimes women lack the strength to really be the best for themselves — and that what I wanted to put out there tonight.”
