Photos of Kate Hudson on the set of Earthbound in New Orleans

Kate Hudson Earth and Maybe Oscar-Bound

Kate has been spending her free time shopping and exploring the city amid the news that Nine was nominated for four Oscars. Kate's been shuttling back and forth between award shows and filming but it looks like this movie will wrap up just in time for her to make it to the Oscars on March 7.
