Pinkett Smith claimed the Hollywood Foreign Press Association wouldn't even watch her and Haddish's movie, Girls Trip, for Golden Globes consideration, despite the film being one of the most successful movies of the summer.
A source with knowledge of the situation, meanwhile, tells ET that Girls Trip was screened for the HFPA on July 18, and that the organization was also invited to movie's premiere.
Girls Trip was one of the most successful films this summer & Tiff was hands down the funniest person on screen in 2017 and we couldn't get eyes on the film or a press conference. How could a nom happen & how much more critical acclaim must a movie have to simply get a screening?
"But yet... Tiff has been asked to present at their ceremony. This isn't about shaming, this is about the need for discussion of an antiquated system," Pinkett Smith wrote, calling Haddish's snub an act of racism. "Hollywood has systems in place that must learn to expand its concepts of race, gender equality and inclusion in regard to its perceptions of art across the board."
The actress continued to point out The Big Sick's snub, and called attention to Get Out being nominated as a comedy. "Moments like this occur so that we have an opportunity to discuss, recreate and regenerate old paradigms," she tweeted. "It's all about growth. Love."

This isn't the first time Pinkett Smith has spoken out about against an awards show. Last year, she boycotted the Oscars after only white actors were nominated for the top honors. See more in the video below.
