Jennifer Hudson Frustrated by Tony Awards Snub
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.
