    PRETTY SOON SHE’LL BE BACK TO DOING JUST MUSIC AND THE MOVIE WORLD WILL HAVE FORGOTTEN ALL ABOUT HER.

  • magnus

    I ALSO LOVE CAPS LOCK. YAY FOR CAPS LOCK. UP WITH PEOPLE!

    “Marky Mark” would bitch slap you Jared for calling him Marky Mark. He dun like it.

  • todara

    I heard that Jennifer Hudson did a fantastic job – did she win anything yet?

  • Susie

    Jennifer did a fantastic job in the movie. At these awards she won best supporting actress. Everyone who has seen the movie says her acting is fantastic. She is being praised for her acting ability. No one held Beyonce from giving a powerful performance. She just has limited acting ability that is all. Also Jennifer had to gain 20 pounds for the role which she did. Whether one is big or not does not mean they are bad actresses… Think of Kathie Bates and Queen Latifah. Some people are so shallow it hurts.

  • BAMZS OWNS THIS SITE?

    JENNIFER DIDNT GAIN WEIGHT FOR THE ROLE SHE WAS ALREADY FAT, SHE JUST LOST WEIGHT AFTERWARDS.. AND EVERY ONE KNOWS THE ROLE JENNIFER PLAYS HAS THE BEST VOICE OF THE GROUP, BEYONCE BEING A BETTER SINGER THAN JENNIFER HAD TO [HOLD BACK] ON HER VOCALS.. SO JENNIFER WOULD SOUND THE BEST. THATS A KNOWN FACT.

    BUT SINCE EVERYONES ON JENNIFERS D*CK I GUESS THEY LIKE TO IGNORE THAT FACT

    You are ridiculous. Beyonce didn’t hold back, Jennifer is more talented than Beyonce is, in the singing and acting department.

    Are you deaf? Jennifers voice blows Beyonce’s out of the water.

  • dreamgirl

    i seen an interview with the director and with beyonce, and they both mentioned that beyonce didnt sing to her full potential, because her charactors voice in the movie wasnt as strong as the charactor that ms hudson was playing. i seen the play, and in the play effie’s voice is the strongest in the group. so yes obviously they couldnt have beyonce out sing her.

  • Susie

    I am talking about Jennifers acting not her singing… She is a much better actress than Beyonce. I am basing this also on some of Beyonce’s other work. If you like her that is all good and dandy but the facts remain Jennifer did a better job of the acting in this movie. Good for Jennifer. No where does it say that if you are not anorexic you cannot act. If acting skills were based on weight then the Olson twins would both have Oscars by now right? Yeah right.

  • Oh Please

    B has her beat in singing and acting. effie is the lead role so no wonder Jen is gettin the Hype. shes suppose to.

    B has a better acting career and will continue too. Jen is losing weight fast because she knows she has to. B will be in tons more movies. so let Jen shine now. cause she sure as hell didnt shine on Idol, lmao

  • Zen

    I love Mark Walberg especially in Italian Job… BUT I LOVE BRAD MOST.
    I am glad Brad is one of the producers of THE DEPARTED.

    What I don’t understand is why Meryl Streep was on best supporting actress category. Is it just so it will be easy for her to win the award? Could somebody please explain.

  • Chanel

    Beyonce acting is so-so, nothing great. Jennifer has great acing skills. Jennifer is the one whose acting the critics are raving about.

  • Susie

    Chanel, Just say you dont like Beyonce. Its pretty Obvious, lol

  • Chanel

    Susie, I don’t have ANY feelings about Beyonce OR Jennifer, I am just telling it like it is, talent-wise for those two girls. Simple as that. The critics are raving about Jennifer’s performance thats the way it is, does not mean anybody dislikes anyone.

  • Anna

    why don’t we talk about the gorgeous Ryan G…. he looks great even with that stach.. and its MandI…

  • dsbnh

    I am glad to see that the critics had the insight to pass out the hyped up performances of Brad Pitt and DiCaprio. Walhberg was actually deserving and so was Whitaker.

  • Jen Who??

    Go Beyonce Go!

  • LOVER OF MATT DAMON ;)

    All of these awards are STUPID because they are snmbbing MY MAN MATT DAMON

    He is hot and a brilliant actor.

    YAY MATT DAMON MATT DAMON MATT DAMON MATT DAMON MATT DAMON

    Saw Jennifer on the View… IMO… she can sing, act and definitely give a
    great interview, speaks well with confidence.

    Oh yeah Beyonce can sing and shake her >…well you know!! with some
    training and speech classes she may become a good actress …. maybe!!

  • Shauna

    Yea!! Forrest Whitaker, and Helen Mirren!

  • ashylarry

    Ryan Gosling was brillant in Half Nelson. Great movie! I hope he’s nominated for an Oscar.

  • Sean

    According to NYFCC site: Jennifer Hudson won best supporting actress, not Meryl Streep.

    THOSE PICTURES ARE FROM THE NEW YORK CRITICS CIRCLE CEREMONY…YES…

    But the winners listed are from the NATIONAL SOCIETY FILM CRITICS….That’s where Mark Wahlberg and Meryl Streep won….NOT NEW YORK…..

  • benitodelicias

    The winners for New York are Mirren, Whitaker for lead and Jackie Earle Haley (Little Children) and Jennifer Hudson for supporting….

  • Denise

    I loved both Jennifer and Beyonce in Dreamgirls, although Jennifer is a much better actress. I do not believe the Beyonce held back her singing because one of the songs she sang was quite good but you must realize that Jennifer is a much STRONGER singer but they’re both great. I must add that I cannot stand when people throw weight into the equation because it says something about their insecurities and not the person they’re attacking. Jennifer did have to gain weight for the role you idiot!! If you saw her on American Idol she was much smarter. If you are going to attack someone, get your facts straight.

    I love Mark Wahlberg and thought he should’ve won at the Oscars.
