Hot Shots: Jennifer Hudson Honored With Star On ‘Hollywood Walk Of Fame’

Published: Wednesday 13th Nov 2013 by Sam

At just 32 years old, Jennifer Hudson‘s career boasts a Golden Globe, a Grammy, an Oscar, and now a star on the iconic Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

The singer-actress, who is currently hard at work on her third studio album, was honored with the coveted spot today in Los Angeles.

While some contest that the homage is too soon (after all it’s just 9 years since her American Idol intro and even less since her award-winning turn in Dreamgirls in 2006), we’re just glad to see a great talent being recognized in such a pronounced manner.

With new material on the horizon, what better way to kick off her new “era” than this? More power to her.

Peep another snap below…

    Congrats

  2. JJFan1814 November 13, 2013

    Although she hasn’t been in the industry that long, she HAS the talent (acting & music) to back it up unlike Katy Perry. This is an award that I don’t mind coming too soon.

    Wow. Nice.

  4. RICHIE_RICH November 13, 2013

    I’m sorry she is giving me cake mix arms.

    • RICHIE_RICH November 13, 2013

      Congrats on your Star. J-hud. just get back in the gym and tone them arms up some more boo.

    What Jennifer did to deserve a star so soon? You people are a bunch of joker, you have people in the business that paved the way for most of these singers and do not have a star nor a proper tribute. Don’t wait until the older foes are gone to be paying tribute. IJS

      Clive is trying to make her the next Whitney.

      • Gregg November 14, 2013

        He is, he is trying sooo hard and she will never be Whitney, EVER!

      • ELLE November 14, 2013

        Mind you all that Whitney Houston doesn’t even have a STAR on the Walk of Fame.

  6. Touché November 13, 2013

    Congratulations Jennifer! You deserved it. 😀

  7. Jason November 13, 2013

    I’ll never forget the day Simon Cowell made fun of Jennifer’s weight. She has won and continues to WIN ever since he said she would never make it. Congrats Oscar & Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson!!! It’s incredible to see a great black actress, singer, and person get a star on the walk of fame. She deserves it and I’m sure her mom and other family members she recently lost to that terrible tragedy are watching over her and are happy for her. *claps*

  8. Lucia November 13, 2013

    No shade, but what has she don…..nevermind. Congrats to her.

  9. Amen November 13, 2013

    Congrats, but could n’t she find a better fitting dress elsewhere?

  10. Non November 13, 2013

    I like her, and all, but there are so many people who have years under their belts, with no star… Congrats girl, i dont wanna hate….

    • toohotfortv November 13, 2013

      She is one if the very few who has critical award recognition across the board. All she needs now is a Tony and she’d have acceptance in every medium of media. It’s not easy to do. If she never did another thing she’s made her mark. Believe me, there are lesser talents with stars on the walk of fame.

    • Touché November 13, 2013

      That’s a good point.

  11. SLAY_HIVE November 13, 2013

    F*** this stupid h**! Beyonce still got more money than you h**………..get back to the gym and tone them arms a bit. She must be eating all that WeightWatchers money………….#TeamPushThePlateBack

    • Gregg November 14, 2013

      and Jennifer has more money than you so have a seat sweetie.

  12. Davis November 13, 2013

    Her arms are f****** long. Clive you aint getting a rehash of Whitney darling.

  13. Arie November 13, 2013

    I love her but no this is way too premature, I mean is she known for anything other than Dreamgirls?

    • Caviar Dreams November 13, 2013

      Yes, weight watchers duh!

  14. toohotfortv November 13, 2013

    And she also has more money than you (and I’d venture to guess, she has more money than anyone you have any kind of personal relationship with). Also, I’d rather wake up next to Jennifer’s man, David Otunga, versus Jay Z’s camel looking ass. Please, stay pressed. JENNY DON’T MIND! HAHAHAHA

  15. toohotfortv November 13, 2013

    The thing is, she’s the one standing on that star (with her arms and all). What have you done today? #readingisfundamental

  16. ASIPOFBRANDY November 13, 2013

    Congrats Jennings but where is BRANDY’S star??? I’m about to start a petition!!!

    • Touché November 13, 2013

      I second that. Brandy has been in the music industry long enough and even Whitney approved of her. She’s a phenomenal vocalist and an inspiration in the RnB world so she definitely deserves it.

  17. ijs November 13, 2013

    You all know people pay for those stars right?
    Jennifer Hudson has done absolutely nothing to deserve a star. The only major thing she has under belt is “Dreamgirls” and that was damn near 8 years ago. She hasn’t made a huge impact in music or movies.I’m not hating i’ve been rooting for her since American idol but most of the time people get these stars they retire soon afterwards.

    @Toohotfortv, is it really that serious? People are only stating the obvious!The one person who brought up beyonce was just being messy. Beyonce has nothing to do with this!

  18. ASIPOFBRANDY November 13, 2013

    *Jennifer – damn that iphone auto correct !

  19. Rey November 13, 2013

    I love you J-Hud but this is too soon. I’d like to point this small fact: you have to ask and pay for a hollywood star, they are not given out based on achievement, they are campaigned and paid for, by the star themselves.

  20. #beyindependent November 13, 2013

    Congratulations but she looks a mess

  21. 2bad2bme November 13, 2013

  23. MuzikLuv November 14, 2013

    EXCELLENT!!

    Happy to she her triumph over ALL the horrible, terrible things that happened to her with her family & she kept pushing herself to win.
    It could have gone a totally different way with her life so glad for her.

    She earned her Grammy and Oscar and made her mother & fam proud.

  24. Monstarebel November 14, 2013

  25. FreeBreezy November 14, 2013

  28. LaDiva November 14, 2013

    Do people need to be reminded that Jennifer Hudson has been in the game going on 10 years next year?

    She was on IDOL’s 04-05 season. People are up here asking what has she done?

    1. Make it to the top ten on what was the #1 show in the country for many years. A show that at the time helped usher in many new thriving musical artists.

    2. She an “unknown american idol reject” beat out hundreds of women, including other famous Hollywood women for the coveted/iconic role of Effie White in Dreamgirls.

    3. She had huge shoes to fill after Jennifer Holliday- She received rave reviews/critical acclaim for her acting in this role, and won nearly every major award including an Oscar, SAG, Golden Globe, NAACP, etc!!!

    4. She won a Grammy, for her debut album, which launched the #1 R&B hit “Spotlight.” Her family was murdered after Spotlight so all promotion basically stopped after that. Album was certified Gold.

    5. Box Office Successes- Dreamgirls, S** and the City, The Secret Life of Bees, The Three Stooges.

    6. Other Movies- Fragments, Winnie Mandela, The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete, Black Nativity.

    7. Television- Call Me Crazy (TV Movie), Smash (Guest Apperances) (Diversified portfolio)

    8. I Remember Me, certified Gold.

    9. Memorable Oscar and Grammy Performances.

    Just because you haven’t heard of some of the stuff she’s doing, doesn’t mean she’s not doing anything. Can you name very many other Oscar winning supporting actors that are still relevant? (Cuab Gooding who? The Italian Guy from Life is Beautiful or the winner of The AArtist?)You’ll need to have some seats. Next up- Emmy, and a Tony. Humanitarian and beautiful spirit.

  29. Oh No You Didn’t! November 14, 2013

    and what makes me mad about it is Whitney Houston doesn’t have this. I mean, c’mon! I got nothing against to Ms Hudson, but I just don’t get it!
