In a series of tweets on Tuesday, the actress accused the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (the non-profit organization that votes for the films) of refusing to screen Girls Trip for awards consideration.
However, a source with knowledge of the situation tells PEOPLE there was a screening held on July 18 and the HFPA was invited to the premiere of the film as well.
“I’m not upset about @TiffanyHaddish or @GirlsTripMovie not getting a nom… I’m discouraged about the fact that the Hollywood Foreign Press/@goldenglobes wouldn’t even WATCH the movie,” she tweeted.
Calling Haddish the “funniest person on screen in 2017,” Pinkett Smith called out the HFPA for seemingly ignoring the film’s box office success and critical acclaim.
“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,” she tweeted. “How could a nom happen & how much more critical acclaim must a movie have to simply get a screening?”
