Jennifer Lopez on Hustlers Oscar buzz and that showstopping pole dance

Jennifer Lopez appeared on "TODAY" radio with Hoda Kotb on September 10 and got emotional when discussing the possibility of receiving an Academy Award nomination for her incredible portrayal of a stripper in the new film "Hustlers". "It's nice", she said as her voice lowered.

"I've just been working hard for so long, for my whole life". I mean, can you imagine an awards season with J. Lo on the red carpet?!

Lopez described hearing of the reviews after the film's premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday.

"In short, and obviously depending upon what other films emerge this season, I feel good about Lopez's prospects - she would be only the fifth Latina lead actress Oscar nominee - and wouldn't rule out a screenplay or even a picture nom, either, given how much the Academy and society has changed over the last few years, "The Hollywood Reporter's Scott Feinberg said. I was like, 'Oh my God'".

Jennifer went on to explain that what struck her the most about the moment was that it gave notice to the hard work she has put in all her life. "You have dreams when you're a little girl of being there, you know what I mean, so just to even talk about it, we're not even there but just to talk about it is incredible".

While the Oscar nominations are a few months away, Lopez said, "Just to talk about it is wonderful".

In Hustlers, Lopez stars as Ramona, the head of a popular and successful strip club who aims to get the upper hand on her Wall Street clients with the help of her crew.

Lopez is joined by Lili Reinhart, left, Keke Palmer, second from right, and Constance Wu in Hustlers.

Jennifer Lopez, 50, is not taking her achievements for granted and she proved that when she couldn't hold back tears at the thought of possibly receiving an Oscar nomination for her role in the new film Hustlers.

Hustlers hits United States theatres on September 13 and NZ cinemas on October 10.
