Ferrera, Hudson = Big Hearts, Big Winners

Power voice Jennifer Hudson and Ugly Betty star America Ferrera were all curves and all smiles last night at the 59th annual Directors Guild Of America Awards held at Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles, Calif. FYI: I am totally blasting the Dreamgirls soundtrack as I post this entry. Pictured below: Dreamgirls director Bill Condon.

    I look forward to Jennifer Hudson getting that Oscar on February 25, 2007. I saw her on Oprah, she is so down to earth. Go JHud! Keep shining!

  • Sandbitch

    Needs larger mirror and dress.

  • bdj

    I love how the women with curves are taking on Hollywood. Not every actress is a size 0 with blonde/black roots showing.

  • Queen Bee

    I absolutely love these ladies!

  • Mimi

    Did America go on a diet lately? She looks awfully slim.

  • Notorious

    BDJ says:
    ——————————
    I agree with you wholeheartedly! I think both ladies are absolutely sexy! Plus just because you’re a 0 doesn’t mean you’re healthier. I know some skeletons who can’t even beat me running a mile.

  • Bootylicious88

    Sandbitch your name is well deserved!

  • NoNameActress

    Although it is unecessary to cross my fingers for Jennifer to win an Oscar, however, I will just to give her a little extra mojo:P

  • ShakaZulu

    It’s interesting to see how in the minority/ethnic communities that Jennifer would be seen as sexy/thick, but in the mainstream community she’s seen as fat.

    Maybe that’s why there are fewer black/latino women who are anorexic or have eating disorders.

  • GidgetWantstoSurf

    I am so rooting for Jennifer to win at the Oscars!

  • Paulnewmanmyhero

    I am so jealous that you have the Dreamgirls CD! I love that dress on JH!

  • HelloMaurie

    Geesh, JH has a rack on her! Bill can practically rest his arm on it. Pretty girl though

  • Starlet

    I missed JH singing on Oprah! Crap and finally no Beyonce trying to hug the spotlight…

  • TrannyinTraining

    Sometimes I wish JH would drop the big girl dresses AKA empire dresses and be a little more daring and more cinched waisted. She’s a lovely girl with awesome curves so she should stop hiding it under the mumu.

  • peaches

    Both are absolutely beautiful girls! Never seen Dreamgirls yet, but because of all the hype around Jennifer, I am next in line to buy my ticket.

  • Smackadocious

    Oh. My. Lamb. America looks so skinny. I hope she hasn’t turned into a sell out!

  • ChicagoBearsAllTheWay

    I like the idea of a splash of red America tried to add, but that is an ugly shoe

  • mercredi

    Yay, jj the soundrack ROCKS! I hope you picked up the deluxe version.

    Go Jennifer!!!!!!!!

  • PonchoVilla

    My fingers are crossed for JH. Thank goodness Oprah invited her back on and allowed this songstress to showcase her vocals.

  • FreeHolly

    No pics of JH’s boyfriend:( He’s a cutie!

  • Bijou

    JH and AF look flawless

  • Amy

    I’m so glad that these two great women are getting the accolades. They deserve it.
    What song are you listening to right now, Jared? I got the regular edition of the soundtrack, and I really regret not getting the deluxe (I downloaded it) since it is so much more complete. Wonderful OST.
    J-Hud’s performance was brilliant. I still want to see her perform “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” live.

  • amrita

    i am so glad Jennifer Hudson is getting this recognition.. not only is she beautiful with her curves but very talented as well :-) i loved the movie and i think she’s wonderful too… the lovely thing is, she’s quite humble (hope she will remain that way in the cynical world of showbiz)

  • coalharbourqt

    ShakaZulu – I have to disagree with you (in a good way!) I’m white and see neither of these ladies as “fat” but as sexy and curvaceous! Granted I’m a little biased because my body looks more like Beyonce’s than Mary Kate’s, but please don’t paint us all with the same ‘stupid brush’. To assume that all white chicks are starving themselves to look like the Olsen twins is so not true.

    I understand what you’re saying, but assuming that all white people think the same would be just as silly as assuming all black or hispanic people think the same. Love these two! They are an inspiration to young women of EVERY colour.

  • coalharbourqt

    Oh, and I love that these two are being rewarded for their talent and brains!

  • Izzie

    Another white chick here to say these women are beautiful. Everyone in the real world should look that good in a size 12…..

    I wish them long successful careers. Give our daughters some other role models besides clavicle showing anorexic like creatures, like Kate Bosworth who was great in her first movie “Blue Crush?” and then went nuts going too skinny.

    Go Jennifer and take that Oscar home!

  • hi

    26 Izzie – ditto that. I read an article with quotes from Jen Gardner – she said that she had difficulty losing post baby fat because she wasn’t motivated – she just wanted to be home with baby. Then she got motivated and was back to “a salad a day and a little protien”. Ridiiculous that women have to eat so little as that and less to be what a large portion of the world calls “gorgeous”. Both JH and America look good (though I think she has lost weight) and Queen Latifa always looks good no matter her weight – they look healthy. I am glad we are now starting to see some plus size white models hit the magazines.

  • Sandbitch

    Don’t matter what size, or color, we all look like crap if we dress in two sizes too small. I’ve got not problem with her body size, just the dress size, oh AND the shoes.

  • Hola

    America looks fabulous! You go girl!

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    USA is losing alot of weight, pretty soon she wont be playing the fat ugly girl roles. [lol] which is her appeal. I wonder what her career will look like at the end of this year.

  • alero

    I thought Ugly Betty was ugly because of her face and the clothes she picked not because she was fact. I actually never thought of her as fat.l

  • alero

    sorry that was ” not because she was fat.”

  • muchomas

    America where are your curves going mami! Please don’t lose any more weight! We love you just as you are!!!!

  • Guido

    ugh…ugly shoes on America. But both ladies are lovely!

  • Mariana

    “Smackadocious” WHY would America be a so-called “sell out” in your words, if she were to lose weight? Is she supposed to stay at her otherwise normal weight to make you happy?! She is going to a ton of award shows, and is probably stressed out by it all which results in weight loss, but in the past she has said she would like to go on the “starvation diet” but can’t resist bagels.

    I strongly believe that by making girls like America and Jennifer into reluctant spokespersons for “fat” people they will resist it in the end, and then the true test will come, will they still be as successful with a size 6/8 ass instead of a size 10/12.
