Actor-producer Priyanka Chopra took an Australian entertainment journalist to task after he questioned if the star and her husband, pop star-actor Nick Jonas were qualified to announce the Oscar nominations.
On Monday, the celebrity couple announced the nominations for the 93rd Academy Awards from London, where Chopra Jonas is shooting for the Amazon Studios’ series Citadel with Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden.
Peter Ford wrote on Tuesday night that he wasn’t sure why the duo was zeroed in on as the nomination presenters.
“No disrespect to these two but I’m not sure their contribution to the movies qualifies them to be announcing Oscar nominees,” Ford asked on Twitter on Tuesday.
In her response, Chopra Jonas shared a video listing over 60 credits from her almost two decade-long career — at home in Bollywood, including Mary Kom, 7 Khoon Maaf and Bajirao Mastani, her international debut with the ABC series Quantico to her Hollywood feature debut Baywatch.
She has also starred and co-executive produced the Netflix film The White Tiger, which has earned a best adapted screenplay Oscar nomination.
“Would love your thoughts on what qualifies someone. Here are my 60+ film credentials for your adept consideration @mrpford,” Chopra Jonas tweeted. —PTI
