Jennifer Hudson Says She's Honored By Grammy Nods

Jennifer Hudson says she's honored to be a Grammy nominee. The Oscar-winning actress and singer, who has been in seclusion since the killings of her mother, brother and nephew, was nominated Wednesday for four Grammy awards for her self-titled debut album.

Says Hudson: "It's been a childhood dream of mine to release an album, so to receive four Grammy nominations is truly a blessing. I am extremely honored and humbled by the nominations."

The nominations came a day after her estranged brother-in-law, William Balfour, was formally charged with murder in the killings of Hudson's mother, Darnell Donerson; her brother, Jason Hudson; and her 7-year-old nephew, Julian King.

Hudson has declined through a spokeswoman to speak about the arrest.

    Save the respect rhetoric for the NAACP.

    To Enough Already: You sound very cold hearted and ignorant. Despite who she is or what she does -- she deserves RESPECT during this time -- just like you would want if you lost your mother, brother, & nephew. If you're tired of reading about it, then just ignore it. Don't disrespect someone just because you don't have the compassion to show someone that you care. May God continue to be with this family during this tragic time.

    Does anyone really care? Hudson's mug has been plastered all over every tabloid on newsstands for the past several weeks. Some of the photos of her look like mugshots, anyhow. If she was not an overrated, overhyped so-called "entertainer" who's story is the stuff of Lifetime made for TV movies about the oppressed, downtrodden child from the inner city ghetto who rises to every occasion and meets it head on with guts and determination, she wouldn' t have received Grammy nominations. I'm sure that the other overrated no-talent, Beyonce, is furious right now.
