Jada Pinkett Smith Goes In on Golden Globes Judges for Refusing to Watch 'Girls Trip'
Girls Trip was an anomaly in 2017 — the rare comedy to achieve both critical and box-office success. Among its many great weapons was comedian Tiffany Haddish, who turned in a scene-stealing, career-making performance. Unfortunately, she was entirely ignored by the Golden Globes.

Now, Haddish's costar (and the subject of a great anecdote on Haddish's She Ready standup special) Jada Pinkett Smith is speaking out about the snub, and she has every reason to be annoyed — apparently the Hollywood Foreign Press Association refused to even watch Girls Trip.

Pinkett Smith was reluctant to call the move "racism" flat out, but she did point out that "Hollywood has systems in place that must learn to expand its concepts of race, gender equality and inclusion in regard to its perceptions of art across the board."

In addition, she also pointed to the snubbing of The Big Sick and Get Out's ridiculous comedy designation as problems with the Golden Globes.
