Jennifer Hudson cds Jennifer Hudson went from being booted off American Idol to winning an Academy Award in just four years. But while she was developing her acting career, it seemed as if her debut album would never come out. (In addition to her Oscar-snatching role in Dreamgirls, she also appeared in Sex i n the City: The Movie and has a role in the coming flick The Secret Life of Bees). Finally, the 27-year-old Chicagoan has released her much-talked-about self-titled CD. The disc, in stores today, goes out of its way to show off Hudson's musical diversity.

HOLLYWOOD -- Martin Scorsese finally felt the love last night from the film industry, as his mob drama, The Departed, was named best picture and he was named best director. "Could you double-check the envelope?" Scorsese joked after being presented the directing Oscar by a heavyweight trio of his directing peers, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola. Scorsese, who had come up short on five previous directing nominations, received a standing ovation from the crowd at the 79th annual Academy Awards at the Kodak Theatre.

Talent that floods off the screen and leaves you ecstatically drenched in emotion and street wit. That's what Dreamgirls, a brash heartbreaker of a musical, provides for most of its swift and enthralling 131 minutes. It's there every second Jennifer Hudson and Eddie Murphy take the screen. And it's there whenever writer-director Bill Condon unites music and storytelling in a torrent of imagery that revives both the social tumult of the 1960s and the glorious pop culture that grew out of it. Jamie Foxx and Beyonce Knowles are the top-billed stars, but Hudson and Murphy are the heart and soul-man of this movie.

Viewers coming together in an adrenaline rush or an aesthetic high as they soak in pristine images from a beautiful big screen. That's been the promise of American moviegoing as a major piece of our culture - a promise that the Senator Theatre has fulfilled year after year. The good news from Wednesday's auction is that the Senator won't become a church hall or a college auditorium. But it will take ingenuity and commitment on the part of movie lovers and arts funders to see that the bad news doesn't come.

TV coverage of Michael Jackson's death had it all Tuesday: helicopter freeway shots of the funeral procession, an army of breathless anchors to ratchet up anticipation and, last but not least, the singer's gold-plated, flower-draped casket on view for a worldwide audience. Yet through all the pomp, the actual memorial service remained moving and elegant. Talk about a day of TV worthy of the King of Pop spectaculars. Maybe the difference lies in all the new media that have arrived in the last 30 years, but Elvis Presley went out like a peasant in 1977 compared withthe 12-day build-up to Jackson's TV sendoff Tuesday.

The matchup might not thrill football lovers, especially here in Baltimore, where rooting against the Pittsburgh Steelers is one of our favorite pastimes. But the Super Bowl is one of our undeniable institutions, as much a holiday as the Fourth of July for many Americans. At least 90 million households are expected to watch the game tonight. Here are a few of the things we'll do and see: Music Jennifer Hudson (below, left) will throw her powerful pipes into the national anthem. Her performance could offer one of the evening's most poignant moments; Hudson's mother, brother and nephew were shot to death in October, and this will be her first public appearance since the tragedy.

But expectations are high for the new book, which has a global print run of 8 million copies. Yesterday, Beedle the Bard was ranked No. 1 on Amazon's U.S. and British Web sites.

Boeing workers end strike after eight weeks SEATTLE : Factories at Boeing Co. were due to start humming again yesterday after Machinists union members voted to end a costly eight-week strike that clipped profits and stalled deliveries by the world's No. 2 commercial airplane maker. Workers were expected to return last night to Boeing's commercial airplane factories, which have been closed since the Sept. 6 walkout. The strike cost an estimated $100 million a day in deferred revenue and production delays on the company's highly anticipated next-generation passenger jet. Machinists union members ended their walkout Saturday by ratifying a new contract with Boeing.
