In a video shared with her social media platforms Wednesday, Lopez — who appears to be working out on an elliptical machine at the gym — gets a little teary-eyed while sharing her reaction to news of her first-ever Screen Actors Guild Award nomination.
“I don’t think I’ve ever been nominated for a SAG Award before,” she says in the clip. “I am so excited and so humbled to be recognized by my fellow actors out there.”
“Acting was my first love along with dancing and I just can’t believe all this is happening,” she continues.
Lopez, 50, then offers a word of encouragement to aspiring actors, telling them “don’t give up.”
“It could happen. It’s happening,” she says, seemingly referring to her own success story.
“Thank you very much. I feel like I already won,” she shares. “Thank you to SAG Awards. I’ll see you guys there!”
In her video caption, the “Dinero” singer added, “Holding back tears… means so much to me to be recognized by my fellow actors!!! Thank you so much to @sagawards for this nomination ?? it truly means the world to me!!! NEVER GIVE UP!!”
