At first, entertainment journalists claimed that Jennifer Aniston had pulled out of her media engagements following her “snub” at the Oscar nominations announcement. But then Jennifer rallied – she spoke to the press at the Critics Choice on Thursday night, then she did a day of press on Friday, and on Monday, she appeared on The Ellen Show. Ellen DeGeneres knows better than to toss an Angelina Jolie question at Jennifer, so there were no references made to Jennifer’s comment on Friday that the Uncool Bermuda Triangle is some “tired and petty BS” and everyone needs to get over it. Jennifer did talk to Ellen about being the “number one snubbed” and how she loves Kate Hudson’s butt. You can see the video here.
Too hot to not handle! Jennifer Aniston made headlines last week when she grabbed the butt of longtime pal Kate Hudson just before the Golden Globes outside The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.
“Well, my gosh, look at that ass,” Aniston, 45, said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, Jan. 19, when Ellen DeGeneres showed the photo of the actress grasping her friend’s rear. “It’s such an irresistible tush.”
“I’m allowed!” Aniston added. “Ryan Seacrest tried to get in. Kate actually did say, ‘Oh well, that’s gonna go everywhere.’” The handsy moment took place on the red carpet as both women gabbed with Seacrest during E!’s preshow. Aniston was up for Best Actress in a Drama at the 72nd Golden Globe Awards, losing to Julianne Moore, who was honored for Still Alice.
The Friends alum, who was also nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award for her work in the upcoming drama about chronic pain, Cake, was snubbed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences just days later, when the nominees for the 2015 Oscars were announced.
“I’m the number one snubbed!” Aniston lamented on The Ellen DeGeneres Show of the buzzed-about diss. “That’s the silver lining, right?”
“It hasn’t even come out,” she continued of her film, which is scheduled to hit theaters later this month. “That’s the crazy thing! We’re so shocked and amazed that we have had this much love for a movie that hasn’t even been released yet.”
While Aniston has been narrowly missing awards for her part in Cake, the star said she has been celebrated for the film in different ways.
“What’s been so incredible is the amount of people that have come out to me who are suffering with chronic pain and in this same situation,” she spilled to DeGeneres. Aniston stars in Cake as a woman who is treating her chronic pain with a variety of medications and loses a member of her support group when the fellow sufferer commits suicide. “It’s unbelievable how much positivity it’s bringing to those who are kind of silently suffering. It’s a beautiful, hopeful movie.”

I know she’s being a good sport and she’s being surprisingly Zen about all of this, and we should just really let her have it… BUT, I kind of think Ava DuVernay is the #1 Snub of the Oscar nominations. David Oyelowo is up there too. But, as I said, maybe we should just give this one to Jennifer. After all, people were really, really surprised that she didn’t get nominated, especially after she spent so much money trying to get that nomination. That’s another question I think a lot of us have: does her Oscar consultant do refunds if the campaign fails?
