Jennifer Hudson was nominated for a Golden Globe for best supporting actress today. Beyonce got a nomination for best actress for musical or comedy (separate from Best Actress-General) and Eddie Murphy got a nod for best supporting actor. Reports surfaced last week that the studio behind Dreamgirls was lobbying for Beyonce to cop Best Actress awards despite Jhud’s star performance. Beyonce also copped a nomination for Best Song. The Golden Globe Awards are pretty much the “Pre-Oscars”. Will Smith and Forest Whitaker got nods for Best Actor. Click here for full list.
New York Daily News last week:
Jennifer Hudson’s fans are outraged that studio execs are putting their money on her “Dreamgirls” co-star Beyonce Knowles to win an Academy Award for Best Actress – while relegating Hudson to the Best Supporting Actress category. But we hear Hudson herself is grateful for the second billing.
