Jennifer Lopez has completely blown audiences away with her performance in Hustlers, with many critics calling for the actress to receive an Oscar nomination once awards season comes knocking.

The 50-year-old stars as feisty stripper Ramona, who is determined to swindle her Wall Street clients in the crime-comedy. It sees J.Lo star alongside the likes of Cardi B, Constance Wu, Lizzo, Keke Palmer and Julia Stiles, making for quite the star-studded cast.

But its Jennifer herself who has earned the most praise from critics who have watched early screenings at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend.

And from their glowing reviews, it seems Jennifer has finally found herself in the running for an Oscar nomination after three decades in Hollywood.

Its about time our girl got her shine. Shes come a long way from Gigli, thats for sure.



Leading the sea of praise is Jennifers fiance Alex Rodriguez, who wrote on Instagram: Just watched the best performance of @jlos career. Oscars worthy. @hustlers was incredible.

Benjamin Lee from The Guardian said in his review: Awards attention would be deserved but a far greater result would be a more expansive set of roles in her future.

Kate Erbland from IndieWire wrote: A full-force performance from Jennifer Lopez [is] genuinely deserving of awards consideration.

And sharing a similar sentiment, Jason Guerrasio from Business Insider added: Jennifer Lopez is amazing in HUSTLERS. STX needs to do a serious Oscar campaign for her. She is that good!!

Wowza, get that girl the golden statue pronto.

The positive response will no doubt come as even more good news for J.Lo as she not only stars in Hustlers, but has produced the movie too.

In a recent interview with ES magazine, Jennifer admitted she stepped out of her comfort zone with Hustlers, in which she had to learn the art of pole dancing but also wear much less clothing than shes used to.



The Love Dont Cost A Thing singer explained: Im used to being on stage in sexy costumes, but I have three layers of tights and fishnets and a bodysuit.

It was a brand-new feeling to come out practically naked, in front of all those men – 300 extras hooting and hollering – and dance for money.
