Jennifer Hudson's Changes

Jennifer Hudson's Changes

The media has been abuzz with Jennifer Hudson's name lately, and for good reason! The former AI contestant had a very big day yesterday: she was on the Today Show, and was nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance in Dreamgirls. Here's more:

"It went from watching the nominations to hearing my name, screaming and crying ... and then I had to go right on to the stage," Hudson explained. "I was still caught up in the moment. I didn't even know what I was doing."

The star sat with her hands folded in her lap and breathed deeply as "Today" host Matt Lauer praised her portrayal of Effie White, a singer in a '60s R&B group in the movie.

"I'm overwhelmed right now," she confessed to Lauer, who could hear the commotion coming from her dressing room on another floor when her name was read.

Once Hudson sang the last line of "I am Changing" - "I'll change my life, I'll make a vow, and nothing's gonna stop me now" - her eyes welled with tears and she fanned herself with her hand.

We've seen the movie and there is no doubt Jennifer steals the show. She is spectacular! For pics of Jennifer Hudson at a Dreamgirls after party, just

When i said skinny i actually meant slim, i don't find NR, MB body types attractive at all. ~...she's poison in the well, razors in the apple core...~

Whateva to all of the haters...Jennifer is a fabulous chick! She is curvy and fierce...I'm tired of the rail-thin h0e$ that are in Hollywood now. Jennifer don't lose weight to appease these ignorant a-holes in Hollywood, you are absolutely perfect the way that you are :-)

Not so can boobs look fat? I am :? boobs are either small, medium or large, which is why cup sizes were invented for all woman of all shapes and sizes. I think Jennifer is AMAZING here...she is showing her true star potential and I would rather see a healthy looking lady here than the bag of bones that is Richie and Barton who are probably your idols with their death warmed up look. I don't see fat I see a curvy woman...which men prefer anyways. ____________________________________________________________________________ Victoria Secret's Semi-Annual Sale starts TODAY...get your credit cards ready

Why are fat/larger body types seen as normal over skinny girls? I don't find her pretty, nothing to do with her weight though. From what i've read she seems sweet. I can't wait to see this movie. ~...she's poison in the well, razors in the apple core...~

i really don't know who she is but i think she looks really pretty and healthy but dont worry hollyweird will tell her she needs to lose weight and she will... "stay far from timid, only make moves when your hearts in it and live the phrase sky's the limit."

Oh yeah no prob BB...I like reading the comments sometimes just cos some ppl are super witty. I'll usually read the comments about Brit on other sites. I just can't believe how nasty some ppl are...they're always anonymous posters, of course. But one I read today was making fun of Kelly Clarkson's "fat ass". I was like COME ON, she looks so normal and healthy.

Jennifer Hudson is sooooo cool. I love listening to her sing, and I've also enjoyed the interviews she's been doing. She seems like such a sweetheart. I post on the official movie boards too and there's a lot of people who really like her there!

FB, I look at a few occasionally but, that's it (plus, I never read the comments). I guess that's why I wasn't understanding the weight/looks obsession...that everyone talks about. Thanks for clearing it up. :)

Unfortunately, BB, you find almost every gossip site is obsessed with weight, and that's all they seem to comment on...sad, but true.

Aw! I can't stand her, but this must be such an exciting time for her. I can't even imagine what it would feel like to go from being a total nobody to having dreams you never even dared to dream come true all in the span of a couple of short years. Good for her! I hope she has a strong support system to ground her during this overwhelming time.

She sounds to me like a wonderful lady. I don't get why people care so much about her weight/looks. She seems beautiful on the inside, as she does on the outside, in my opinion. Personally, I've never heard of such emphasis on weight, and looks till I joined this site...maybe it's because, I don't keep up with this celebrity stuff. :?

Wonder how long it will last before she succumbs to the unrealistic Hollywood ideals... I will agree it's refreshing to see a healthy looking gal on screen.

Fat and gross? I too think she looks real and great. Women come in all sizes.

Wow, ladyaudrey, what got you so worked up? Whether you like her rack or not, she still put in an amazing performance! Have you seen Dreamgirls? If you do, I think you'll realize how incredibly ironic it is that you criticized her weight just then. I'm with nyaradzom -- it's nice to see a celeb who's a hottie without starving to lose her healthy, everyday body.

i love her, it's nice to hear about someone other than Brit, BAMZS, JT or George Clooney. I love the fact that she looks realistic unlike most of the skinny celebs out there. Her boobs are hot, you've got to say it's better than the sternums and ribcages with t*ts we've been seeing lately.
