Global star Priyanka Chopra Jonas, announced the Oscar 2021 nominations on Monday along with her singer husband Nick Jonas. While most of us know Chopra’s credentials and her enviable filmography, Australian journalist Peter Ford seemed to be unaware of her credentials as an actor.
On Wednesday, Ford took to Twitter to question the credibility of Priyanka and Nick and asked if they were ‘qualified enough’ to present the Oscar nominations. “No disrespect to these two but I’m not sure their contribution to movies qualifies them to be announcing Oscar nominees,” Ford wrote as he shared a photo of the couple. Ford’s Twitter bio states he is “the best & most widely heard entertainment reporter in Australia & NZ. Allegedly”.
Priyanka shared Ford’s now-deleted tweet and schooled him about the work she has done in the most classy way possible. Sharing a montage of the films she has worked on, Priyanka wrote, “Would love your thoughts on what qualifies someone. Here are my 60+ film credentials for your adept consideration.”
