Although Jennifer Hudson is happy her castmates Danielle Brooks and Cynthia Erivo scored nominations, she feels like those over production only booked her because she’s well known.
Hip Hollywood writes:
A lot of Broadway folks received Tony nominations on Tuesday, but Jennifer Hudson was not one of them … and she’s kind of in her feelings about it.
Hudson, who saunters and sways as Shug Avery in The Color Purple, hopped on Twitter to respond to a fan who was disappointed about her Tony snub. Although the Academy Award winner says she’s “not surprised”, she also through a little shade, too.
J Hud has since deleted the tweet.
