    I REALLY hope Jennifer Hudson wins. I guess Beyonce was NOT the star after all. I LOVE IT

  2. sandy

    Dreamgirls was stupid and over-hyped just like Oprah’s ‘Beloved’. An over-hyped black movie that NO ONE cares about…

  3. MissNee

    Tell us what you really think, Sandy…

  4. me

    okay sandy. you can hate a movie but you don’t have to bring race into this. there have been a lot of ooverhyped so called white movies/ actors/ actresses in industry history.

    SO FALL BACK WITH THE NONSENSE

  5. whatever

    Hey, it’s not hating to bring race into it – Sandy wasn’t bashing race, just the movie. It was an overhyped movie, and the black aspect was a major marketing ploy targeting race alone, which IMO is a helluva lot more rascist that just calling a movie ‘black’.
    Get your panties out of the slingy, ‘me’. There are overhyped white movies AND black movies…calling them that is not hateful, just the truth.
    I personally thought Dreamgirls was lame, though Hudson by herself was great and is going places.
