|hey kids! i think hands down the best inspirational feel good story of the year for sure belongs to the amazing jennifer hudson who kicked ass in the big-screen adaptation of dreamgirls – yes beyonce may be the ‘star’ but it’s hudson who walks off with the film in her back pocket! it wasn’t my favorite film of the year (i’m still not sure which film that’ll be i think babel is coming close) but watching ms. hudson simply nail the part of ‘effie white’ was well worth my time! this week’s STAR magazine features jennifer and her amazing rags to riches story – she used to sing at burger king – i doubt she’ll be doing that again anytime soon! oh i can’t wait to see what she has up her sleeve next year! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!|
“after seeing close to 800 effies,” (director bill) condon told the san francisco chronicle, “it became clear that jennifer was the only one who combined an amazing vocal talent with a natural gift for acting.” among those hudson beat out for the part: fantasia barrino, the 2004 american idol winner!
