It has been an amazing ride for Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson since she won the role of Effie White in the film adaptation of the musical Dreamgirls. She has won every major acting award imagineable and has gained a legion of new fans, and some haters as well. Most notably rumored to be a JHUD hater is the diva herself, Ms. Beyonce Knowles.
In early advertisments for the film Beyonce and co-stars Murphy and Foxx were billed as the stars of the film, meanwhile newcomer Jennifer Hudson was invisible until she belted out the signature song that made Jennifer Holiday a star, And I Am Telling You(I'm Not Going) .
Rumors swirled that Beyonce and her father/manager Matthew Knowles were upset that Beyonce's performance was being ignored by the public and that all of the attention was going to the overweight girl with the big voice from Chicago.
Rumors that both women deny. I think it's obvious that Beyonce's tears at the Golden Globes and at the Oscar's were from sheer frustration from being overlooked for Hollywood's top honors, can't you just hear her saying "I'm Beyonce! I always get nominated and I always win!" Not this time B, it's time for a vacation, we're sick of you!
