"Dreamgirls" Hudson wins Golden Globe

Jennifer HudsonFormer "American Idol" finalist and film newcomer Jennifer Hudson won the award for best supporting actress in a movie musical or comedy at the Golden Globe Awards for her role in "Dreamgirls," according to Reuters.

"I have always dreamed but I never ever dreamed this big. This goes far beyond anything I could have ever imagined," said Hudson who dedicated her award to Florence Ballard, one of the singers from The Supremes on which "Dreamgirls" is loosely based.

The win boosts her chances for the same prize at the Academy Awards later next month.

While there is no official connection, the Golden Globe Awards is always considered a yardstick for the Oscars, as well as a springboard for the careers of its winners.

All four of 2005's Oscar winners for acting - Philip Seymour Hoffman, Reese Witherspoon, George Clooney and Rachel Weisz - also won Golden Globes.
