  • Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas announced the Oscar nominations this week.

  • But one critic thought they shouldn't have been given the job - and after spotting the tweet, Priyanka clapped back.

Let's all take a moment to shout-out Priyanka Chopra and the epic comeback she just reeled off at a reporter who questioned why she was presenting the Oscar nominations with husband Nick Jonas.

The couple revealed the nominations in 23 categories in a livestream earlier this week ahead of the 93rd Academy Awards taking place next month in Los Angeles.

"No disrespect to these two but I'm not sure their contribution to the movies qualifies them to be announcing Oscar nominees," one reporter wrote on Twitter.

Firstly, whenever a sentence starts "no disrespect but..." it's probably going to be disrespectful.

Anyway, Priyanka spotted the tweet and issued a very impressive clap back to the journalist: she sent back a clip of her scrolling through her entire movie history in IMDb.

"Would love your thoughts on what qualifies someone," she shot back. "Here are my 60+ film credentials for your adept consideration."

Her 60+ films include her most recent Netflix movie White Tiger which has been nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Priyanka recently opened up about reading comments online about herself and Nick, and admitted she often looks to see what people are saying. "I am just like everyone else," the actor told Marie Claire.

"In the morning when I'm driving to work or I'm having my coffee, I'm flipping through Twitter, Instagram, the news, and when my name pops up, I'm like, ‘Alright, what are people saying? How are we feeling?' I just don't react to it or let it affect my mental well-being."
