One of the big names missing when the Oscar nominations were revealed earlier this month was media mogul Oprah Winfrey, who won acclaim for her supporting turn in “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” but failed to pick up a nomination.
Her absence from the supporting actress category was considered by many pundits to be the biggest snub of the nominations, but Oprah herself is reportedly OK with it.
Her good pal Gayle King — co-anchor of “CBS This Morning” and editor-at-large for Winfrey’s “O” Magazine” — spoke to HitFix about the supposed snub in the video interview posted above.
“She doesn’t feel snubbed at all,” King explains. “She’s really good. And she loves Lupita” [Nyong’o], who earned a nomination for “12 Years A Slave.”
Now, does anyone know how Tom Hanks feels about his snub?
