Priyanka Chopra and husband Nick Jonas announced the nominations for the 2021 Academy Awards on Monday, but an entertainment journalist’s snarky tweet questioning their qualifications earned him a solid clapback.
Peter Ford — who bills himself on Twitter as “the best & most widely heard entertainment reporter in Australia & NZ. Allegedly” — disparaged the couple in a tweet he issued on Monday.

“No disrespect to these two but I’m not sure their contribution to movies qualifies them to be announcing Oscar nominees,” he wrote, accompanying a photo of the spouses.
Chopra was not impressed by the diss, and responded with a tweet of her own.
“Would love your thoughts on what qualifies someone. Here are my 60+ film credentials for your adept consideration,” she wrote, accompanied by a video featuring her numerous collection of screen credits.

Not only does this diminish a woman’s career but also disregards the importance of World Cinema and it’s presence at the Oscars 🙃.
Like film doesn’t just revolve around American movies .
