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.
