Jennifer Hudson Blasts Tony Award Snub


Last month there were rumors that Jennifer Hudson was sabotaging her Tony Award win chances by leaving the Color Purple after only six months [click here if you missed that].

Poor thing wasn't even nominated...

When Jennifer Hudson announced she was leaving The Color Purple last month critics warned the timing would prevent out-of-town Tony Award voters from seeing her performance, thus torpedoing her chances of winning.

Turns out that won't be an issue.

When the nominations came out yesterday Jennifer Hudson's name was not on the list and when a fan pointed out the obvious snub Jennifer chimed in that she had been cast for her celebrity and not her talent.

Celebrity status? I mean she can sing and all but does she bring in crowds due to her status. I mean I didn't know folk were knocking down doors to see her.

Elocution and diction lessons would open lots of doors for her. If Rosie Perez can do it, so can she.

She basically punched herself in the fact, tbh. Kardashians are used for their celebrity, and not their talent. Oh well.

she is immensely talented. But something about her attitude since the success of Dreamgirls just throws me off. I'm actually a fan of her talent, but she just really needs to work on her likability.

She wasn't that great in the role, so even if she was used for her celebrity as she claims her talent would have prevailed and honestly she was overshadowed by more talented actresses in this production.

She doesn't have that humility that she had when she won the Oscar. She comes across very snooty over the years.
I root for her as well but there's something likeable about Fantasia after all these years.
Jennifer, not as much.

If anyone saw The Color Purple, they would know why she wasn't nominated. He performance was underwhelming at best. The young ladies that played Celie & Sophia were outstanding, overshadowed JHud and made her performance forgettable. Her attitude is bigger than her head & talent.

@11:00 - That's exactly what Simon told Jennifer on AI. Chick is stuck up and has a major attitude. You can only afford to be snotty and dismissive when your name is already written in history. Fantasia is a beautiful person one-on-one. There's no pretense with her, she just wants to sing and can "sang" which makes her way more likeable and entertaining. Truth be told, no one is really checking for JHud, and that's her real issue.

I saw her in person, and she wasn't that great like the last actress who played that role. She sang her ass off, but the passion in her acting sure wasn't there. She wasn't even the star of the show. The lady who plays Sophia was amazing! she needs to humble herself and be aware that she wasn't that amazing, especially on the day I saw her.

I agree with most of the posters on here. Jennifer is acting like she is the great I am. Now a statement like this came from Aretha, Diana, Patti or Tina then I would be more than willing to give them a pass ( while chuckling at the same time) because they've been in the game a loooong time so their longevity and talent is without question. JHud will never be on their level, so she needs to be thankful that she received the opportunity make a living doing something she always wanted to do.

I think a huge helping of humble pie is in order for JHud, hell she need to eat the whole damn pie at this point.

She thinks she won Academy Award for Dreamgirls that everything should be handed to her even a Tony Award by doing live stage plays and making a personal appearance like she's a professional actress with she's not I mean come on she got her start from American Idol she didn't win American Idol but when she auditioned for Dreamgirls she fit the part that she played and she deserved to win Oscar award when your sell your soul having people set up innocent people just to sacrifice someone to build your career it doesn't work all the time Jennifer what goes in and out in the dark will come to the light

@12:14 - I saw TCP years ago, so I don't know if the same actress is still playing Sophia, but in any event, whoever played the role in 2007 was phenomenal. She was the reason why I purchased the soundtrack. Her version of "Hell No" about Harpo still rocks.

Idk why she doesn't seem to understand the fact that the general public really doesn't like her. She rubs ppl the wrong way. She needs to work on her attitude.
