Wanna know why people like Jennifer Lopez did not present at the Golden Globes this past weekend? Well, Page Six of The New York Post reports that many an A-lister received emails from their agents warning them that by taking the stage at the Golden Globes, it could ruin their chances of presenting at the Oscars on Feb. 26! So they were dissuaded by Oscar's gold.
Lopez turned down a request to present on Jan. 15 because they feared they wouldn't be able to take the Oscar stage! A source said, "The Globes lost Jennifer Lopez as a presenter, but many other stars took the view that they don't want to be told what to do."
A spokesperson for the Globes did not deny these reports, either. "The Globes are always the most hotly anticipated show of the awards season and the party of the year. As always, the room was the most glamorous in town, packed full of the industry's biggest and brightest stars," the rep said.
Academy President Tom Sherak commented, as well, saying, "The academy has always placed a premium on exclusivity, but, ultimately, each individual makes his or her own decisions."
It's the Oscars, for God's sake. Jesus, people! Is it THAT big of a deal?
Team Oscar or Team Golden Globe?
