Post Jennifer Holliday
Hi, I'm new to this forum, but I'm sure that you'll find my questions and comments enlightening (I'm sorry, that sounded a little conceited; I'm just very excited :D ). Anyway, I read somewhere that Jennifer Holliday (aka Broadway Effie) was displeased with not only Hudson's performance, but everyone's performance in the movie! :?: First off, the movie and the performances within them were awesome. And even if Holliday was displeased, she has no right to judge because she's not Effie anymore! What do you guys think?

Well, I read it on Wikipedia; they're usually pretty accurate. Lemme know if you would like me to post a link.

I don't know. Wikipedia can be wrong. Everyone in my social studies class believed for a while that Patrick Henry was the 16th president of the US thanks to Wiki.

Anyway... Jennifer Holliday has a right to be mad that she wasn't invited to the premiere, but I think she's taking it too far. She was a great Effie, but I believe she got too in character.

Did everyone see Jennifer Holliday sing on the day of the oscars.

Like...did she grow retarded in the past 20 years?

I heard that Jennifer Holliday was upset that she wasn't asked to reprise her role in the movie... Sounds ridiculous because she is far too old, IMO. However, I'm sure that's just a stupid rumor started by an MT fan, lol. I hadn't heard that she hated the movie, though. I wonder why?

Jennifer Hudson thanked her as an afterthought! She was walking away, and than turned back around! lol.

I'm not saying that this means anything, but it wasn't like, a big thanks.

i dunno, i just think jennifer holiday is a major B for going on TV to sing "and I'm telling you" on Jennifer Hudson's night. I mean come on. Jennifer Holiday had her turn, give some one else a chance. she should be excited that the role she created is gaining so much acclaim. she's acting ridiculous.

That was so for show. From what I've heard about Holliday's involvement-or lack thereof- in the movie, Jennifer Hudson and Jennifer Holliday probably aren't that close friends. I think the fact that she thanked her as an after-thought pretty much brought to light all that drama. If she had not mentioned her, no one would have noticed. I really think Holliday's attitude may have pressured Jennifer Hudson to thank her like that.

Jennifer Holliday played Effie for too long. The character seems to be rubbing off on her.

she stated she wanted a cameo in the movie as deena's mom, and not play effie. i dont think she's that delusioned.
