Jennifer Hudson's awards tears

Jan 9 2014, 5:28am CST | by

Jennifer Hudson broke down in tears as she accepted the People's Choice Favorite Humanitarian Award last night (01.08.13).

The singer-and-actress was honored with the accolade for the work she has done through her Julian D. King Gift Foundation - which was set up following the murders of her nephew, mother and brother in 2008 - and she wept as she recalled her family tragedy.

She said: "I have to start off saying the same thing I said when I won my Oscar - look what God can do!

"This all started, like I said, back home in our church where we grew up. My mother always taught us that without family you have nothing, and whether you know it or not all are family, and what happens to the other happens to us, so it's very important to make a difference."

The 32-year-old beauty - who invited her older sister Julia onto the stage with her - went on to tell the audience at Los Angeles' Nokia Theater that celebrity status "means nothing" if stars don't use their influence to do good.

She added: "We're all so quick to say, 'We can't,' or, 'Oh, it happened to them, but it will never happen to me.' Yes, I am a witness. It can all happen to us all.

"Its one thing to be a celebrity and have power - but it means nothing if we're not making a difference with helping someone else and trying to change a life."

The Julian D. King Gift Foundation - named in honor of Jennifer's seven-year-old nephew - was started by the 'Dreamgirls' star and her sister, the boy's mother, shortly after the tragedy and it aims to "provide stability, support and positive experiences for children of all backgrounds".

Allison Williams Playing Peter Pan Will Shatter All of Your Childhood Memories

Jul 30 2014 11:15am CDT | Source: Scandalist

In what’s clearly the most random casting news of the day, Girls star Allison Williams has scored the lead role of Peter Pan in NBC’s Peter Pan Live. To be fair, previous casting announcements have included Christopher Walken (as Captain Hook), so it’s clear the December 4 production is going for the unconventional. While Williams excels in the part of an insufferable perfectionist on her HBO series, she’s far from our first choice to step into those legendary tights. Maybe Marnie’s ...

Nutter Thinks TV Viewer Perception of July 4th Concert Profanity Was Overblown

Jul 14 2014 2:57pm CDT | Source: CBS Philly

  By Mike Dunn   PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Mayor Nutter says reports of rampant profanities by performers at this month’s “Welcome America” Fourth of July concert were somewhat exaggerated. WPVI-TV, which broadcast the concert live, frequently cut away from the audio and video during the songs of every performer except Jennifer Hudson. Mayor Nutter says he later compared the raw concert footage to the tape of the broadcast, and believes that the profanities were less frequent than first thought ( ...
