In today's column, Bill Zwecker looks at the evidence that Beyonce is getting a little miffed at all the Oscar buzz surrounding not her but "Dreamgirls" co-star, and Chicago native, Jennifer Hudson ...
Could things possibly be not so dreamy between a couple of the "Dreamgirls" stars? Though representatives for all involved already are denying it, there are rumors Beyonce Knowles — and especially her parents Matthewand Tina Knowles — are none too happy about all the Oscar buzz going to Beyonce's co-star, and Chicago native, Jennifer Hudson.
First tipped by the MediaTakeOut Web site, the Knowleses reportedly are upset about more of the spotlight being focused on Hudson, the former "American Idol" star, rather than Beyonce — who shares top billing on the film with Jamie Foxx and Eddie Murphy.
Based on the hit Broadway musical, the film debuts nationally on Christmas Day. It received a huge boost Monday when Oprah Winfrey devoted her entire show to the upcoming film.
Though friendly on stage, sources claim Beyonce was very chilly to Hudson behind the scenes at "Oprah" — though a source at Harpo (which produces the show) called that "just plain silly... everyone backstage was happy, friendly and talking to everyone involved."
We'll see how "happy and friendly" everyone is when those Golden Globe and Oscar nominations start coming out.
