So the Golden Globe nominations were announced on Thursday morning and it was no surprise that Dreamgirls received it's fair share of nods. This film will no doubt become a Black cinema classic. It was also no surprise that this year's breakthrough star Jennifer Hudson received a nomination for her portrayal as Effie White.

Now on to Ms. Beyonce Knowles. Beyonce received a nomination for Best Leading Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for her portrayal as back up singer Deena Jones. I just have one problem with this nomination, Beyonce is playing a supporting role! Will somebody please tell this girl and the money hungry studio heads that Deena Jones is a supporting character to Hudson's Effie White!

I understand that Beyonce may have more star power than Jennifer Hudson at the moment but all of that will change on December 25th. Did anyone notice that Beyonce's character didn't have a power ballad to sing so Ms. Knowles decided to write one for herself so she could have her "And I Am Telling You" moment? Listen is a good song(minus the tacky video!) and deserves to win in the best original song category.

When is she and Daddy Knowles going to realize that too much exposure can be damaging. I'm sick of Beyonce, but I respect her talent and listen to her music all in the same breath. I'll be the first to admit that I love to hate her.

I wonder what Kelly and Michelle are up to? Probably sitting around somewhere pretending too be extremely happy for Beyonce and wishing she would do a Destiny's Child reunion.

Make sure you tune into the awards show on January 15, 2007 at 8 P.M. on NBC . I'm sure Beyonce will be wearing another one of momma Tina's tacky ass House of Dereon designs.

I predict a backlash for Beyonce soon. It's obvious her camp pushed the studio to put her in the Leading Actress category although she plays a supporting role. That's just a mess!

However, she's up against Annette Bening, Toni Collette, Meryl Streep and Renée Zellweger. Good luck, Bouncy!

Beyonce is gonna get her ass handed to her by Ms. Meryl. When they pick the people to be in these categories, they have to take the actress's complete career into consideration. Meryl Streep, Renee Zellweger, Annette Bening, and Toni Collette have head GREAT CAREERS, but then there's Ms. Knowles...Come on, Fighting Temtations? Carmen? Pink Panther? All those films are worthy of a good BET Award. My love/hate relationship grows for Beyonce' more and more everytime I hear some bull like this. Anyway, I stopped listening to B'day when Fantasia came out. Have you heard it???!!! It's greatness.

Overexposure can definitely stall if not kill your career. And if her people are not careful, Beyonce's career may be taking a nosedive pretty soon. I'm surprised to see that she got nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Leading Actress in a Musical or Comedy. The performances that I keep hearing people rave about are more so from Jennifer Hudson and Eddie Murphy. One thing's for sure, she's got a fat chance of winning. Best Song yes, Leading Actress no. For whatever reason I'm now anticipating the Oscar nominations.

These award shows have been lost their credibility for me years ago. It's rarely about the art and more of a popularity contest.

Beyonce is going down....yes she is.
