gannsyes.gifEarlier tonight (this afternoon in Manila), singer/actress Jennifer Hudson won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy/Musical for her role as Effie White in Dreamworks’ Dreamgirls.

Hudson, who was more popularly known as an American Idol Season 3 finalist prior to her dream casting as Effie, now ups her collection of accolades for her portrayal of Effie to 18!

Hudson has won Best Supporting Actress nods from the Satellite Awards; New York Film Critics Circle; New York Film Critics Circle Online (tied with Catherine O’Hara); the Southeastern Film Critics Association Awards; the Washington, DC Film Critics Association; the African-American Film Critics Association; the Las Vegas Film Critics Association; the St. Louis Gateway Film Critics Awards; the Broadcast Film Critics Awards; and the Ohio Film Critics Awards.

She has also been acknowledged as Female Star of Tomorrow by Sho West, Best Female Breakthrough Performance from the National Board of Review (tied with Babel‘s Rinko Kikuchi); the Breakthrough Performer award from the New York Film Critics Circle Online; the Breakthrough of the Year from the Hollywood Life Awards; the Breakthrough Performance Award from the Palm Springs International Film Festival; the Pauline Kael Breakout Award from the Florida Film Critics Circle; the Breakout Performance Award from the Oklahoma Film Critics Circle; and the Breakout Artist award from the Austin Film Critics Association.

She was nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association awards and the National Society of Film Critics awards, but did not win.

She still has standing nominations at the Screen Actors Guild Awards , the NAACP Image Awards, and the BAFTA.

Go, JHud! Take home that Oscar!

Spoiler video: This is the pivotal scene in Dreamgirls when Effie White is booted out of the Dreams. This Jennifer Hudson video undoubtedly won her the Golden Globe and nine other acting awards. This video of And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going with Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce, Anika Noni Rose, Jamie Foxx, Keith Robinson, and half-Filipina Sharon Leal, is truly intense, and I wouldn’t recommend you watch it without going through the entire movie, but it’s really spectacular. Before enjoying this video of And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going, you get the ‘fight scene’ video of It’s All Over.

This video of And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going was apparently shot bootleg (so it’ll probably be pulled off YouTube soon). The audience breaks into spontaneous applause at least three times during Jennifer Hudson’s spotlight song. (Pay close attention to the side comments of the audience, like some anonymous black girl who muttered a sassy “Mmm hmm” the minute Sharon Leal steps onto the stage and Effie White eyes her in disbelief – hilarious!).


There’s actually a better quality video here, but it cuts out the climax! Hell no!
