You're Such a Critic

You're Such a Critic

January 05, 2007

THE QUESTION The buzz- and glamour-rich Dreamgirls opened on Christmas to rave reviews and a strong box-office performance. What Oscar nominations -- if any -- do you think it should get?

WHAT YOU SAY I found Dreamgirls very enjoyable and believe it will win quite a few awards. However as good as Jennifer Hudson was at portraying Effie, Jennifer Holliday [who portrayed her on Broadway] was and still is Effie. Hudson was fine on her own but if you compare, I'll take Holliday. But that should not take away from her fine performance.

THE NEXT QUESTION Babel, Bobby, The Departed, Little Children and The Queen are nominated for the Golden Globe for best dramatic movie of the year. What movie do you think will win when the awards are given out at 8 p.m. Jan. 15 on NBC? Why?
