Jennifer Hudson in Dreamgirls

Jennifer Hudson went from runner-up on American Idol to the toast of Hollywood with her first film role as Effie White in Dreamgirls. It was not only Hudson's raw acting talent, but her heart-stopping rendition of the film's main song "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" that made it clear a star was born. Hudson earned over two dozen awards for her debut performance, including an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
