LOS ANGELES - Former "American Idol" contestant Jennifer Hudson won the Oscar
for best supporting actress on Sunday for her performance as the spurned lead
singer of a female trio in "Dreamgirls."
Hudson's showstopping singing and sympathetic character had made her the
odds-on favorite to win the award. It was the 25-year-old's first movie role for
which she also picked up Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards.
