So Jennifer Hudson won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. I had to be one of the first to post on this wonderful issue. This proves that through passion and determination anyone can succeed.
The Dreamgirls diva thanked God twice, and she should have. Lord knows she worked hard to get where she is today.
Best known for her role as Effie White in the 2006 film version of the Broadway musical Dreamgirls, vocalist/actress Jennifer Hudson was first brought to the public's attention while a contestant on the third season of the reality show vocal competition American Idol. Born in 1981 in Chicago, IL, Hudson sang from a young age, first performing in her church. Various talent shows and school musical productions followed until she eventually secured a role in a local Chicago production of the musical Big River. Prior to auditioning for American Idol, Hudson also sang professionally while working on the Disney Wonder cruise ship.
Besides the usual bore of the Academy Awards, Ellen was extremely funny in her own special way. And those shadow people behind the screen was a real treat...
I was overly excited that Martin Scorsese won the oscar for Best Director, and The Departed won for the Best Picture! One of my favorite directors.
Until the next post, much LOVE, PEACE AND EMPATHY!
