    Its seems to me that Beyonce only does these movie to be the 1st woman in history to win a grammy and a oscar.

    But Beyonce is not a actress at all, she really cant act to save her life. With J-Hud on the hills to be the very 1st woman to win the grammy and Oscar b4 Beyonce.

    J-Hud already upset Beyonce 1 time will she do it agian???

    Beyonce seems to rush at all the movies b4 any one else get to them. Beyonce name alone will draw money, but if she cant act y keep givin her roles to a movie??????

    Beyonce can sing her ass off, but the point is that every movie she has done its been about singing, if she is already a singer tell me where the hell the acting come in at????

    Singer playing a singer???
    A gay boy play a gay boy??
    A teacher playing a teacher???

    Where the hell is the acting in that??? Thats not acting at all.

    Beyonce is not a actress till she do somthing outside of her own box!!!

    J-Hud I’m rooting 4 u, J-hud u already won the oscar, now win yo Grammy so u can be the 1st girl in history, to win a Grammy and A Oscar!!!!!!

    Go J-HUD!!!!!

    Lord know I love J Hud! But ask yourself this… Would she have received the Grammy Noms if this tragedy wouldn’t have happened? I am happy that she received them but I think some people play upon others tragedys.

    You know what’s pathetic, people wanting Beyonce to fail, or to suffer some form of unhappiness or failure. It’s okay wanting someone else to do better, but wishing that kinda stuff on just a woman for no other reason than you don’t like her, says more about you than can ever be said about Beyonce.

    That aside, congrats to Jhud. Although i don’t think she deserves to win any of these, titles. For starters, Mariah Carey’s album being snubbed is hugely insulting, and if she had been nominated she would have deserved that title, but Jhuds album was mediocre and generic, although good for what it was, nothing standoutish. Although it would be an amazing thing for her, to have Jennifer hudson be the first female to win an oscar and a grammy would be a farce.

    And for those who are concerned, Beyonce’s role as Etta James is getting rave reviews, i have yet to read a negative one.

    I did not say that she did not deserve the nominations. And I know that she can SANG!!!! Pls read my comment again… Sometimes I do beleive that the media and others play upon others tragedies and try to make themselves the heros because the gave some type of recognition or award thinking that it will heals wounds and such. Like I said before I am a big J Hud fan and I hope that everone has her best intrest and not trying to use her tragedy.
