Yesterday, Jennifer Lopez snagged a Golden Globes nomination for her work in "Hustlers", and a super fan found a funny way to celebrate.
It all started when Mel Magazine culture writerJoseph Longo tweeted at JetBlue before his flight from New York to Los Angeles. He wrote, "In honor of JLO’s #GoldenGlobes nomination this morning, I WILL make sure everyone watches Hustlers on this flight."
"Hey @JetBlue, there are definitely Oscar voters on this NY to LA flight. Please let me make an announcement!"
Soon after, Longo uploaded a video in the flight, where the pilot is heard overhead detailing a "a special request from one of our customers, Mr. Joseph Longo."
"He’s a well-known backup dancer for Jennifer Lopez, and as of this morning, Jennifer Lopez was nominated for a Golden Globe for her work in Hustlers. 'Hustlers' is one of our in-flight movie options. We’d greatly appreciate if you join us in supporting Ms. Lopez and watch 'Hustlers' on our flight today. Thanks for your support, and we hope Jennifer wins that Oscar."
Longo clarified in his caption that he didn't say he was Lopez's backup dancer, but rather "The Backup JLo."
JLo herself took to Twitter to respond: "This is amazing!!!!!!! You can be my backup dancer any day. THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT!"
