Former 'American Idol' finalist Jennifer Hudson wins two BET Awards

By Christopher Rocchio, 06/27/2007 

Award-winning American Idol fourth-season champ Carrie Underwood may want to check her rearview mirror, as Jennifer Hudson continues to accumulate her own honors.

During last night's 2007 Black Entertainment Television Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, the American Idol 3 seventh-place finisher took home best actress and best new artist honors for her portrayal of powerhouse singer Effie White in director Bill Condon's critically-acclaimed 2006 film adaptation of Broadway's Dreamgirls musical.

"I can't believe I'm still winning awards!" exclaimed Hudson upon being named best actress, according to People.

Hudson's Dreamgirls performance has been a best supporting actress goldmine for the 25-year-old, as she has claimed numerous awards -- from the Golden Globe and Oscars to the Screen Actors Guild and British Academy of Film and Television Arts -- for her portrayal of White.

In addition to taking home two awards at the annual BET ceremony, Hudson also performed a duet of "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" with Jennifer Holliday, who first recorded the Dreamgirls song following her Tony Award winning role in the Broadway musical in 1981.
