JENNIFER Lopez feels she deserves to have won an Oscar.

The singer and actress believes her role in El Cantante was worthy of an Academy Award and was disappointed she didn't even get nominated for the prestigious honour.

Lopez, who starred alongside husband Marc Anthony in the movie, said: "I feel like I had that Oscar worthy role in El Cantante, but I don't even think the Academy members saw it. I feel like it's their responsibility to do that, to see everything that's out there, everything that could be great."

The Maid in Manhattan star admits she watched the 2008 Oscars with frustration, even though she had given birth to her twins, Max and Emme, just days before.

She said: "Well, it is a little bit frustrating. It was funny. When the Oscars were on, I had just given birth on the 22nd, and the Oscars, I think, were a day or two later.

"I was sitting there with my twins - I couldn't have been happier - but I was like, 'How dope would it have been if I would've won the Oscar and been here in my hospital bed accepting the award? Thank you so much! I just want to thank the Academy!'"

However, she does believe she will get the honour one day, telling Latina magazine: "Things will happen when they're supposed to happen. I have the utmost faith and no doubt that it will one day, when and if it's supposed to. You can't get all crazy twisted over it." - Bang
