Jennifer Hudson is reunited with her Bafta.... Five years after it was lost in the post

When she won a Bafta Award in 2006 for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Dreamgirls, Jennifer Hudson was delighted but was unable to collect the prestigious prize in person.
So officials decided to send the award over to her in the US through the post... but it never arrived.
And now, five years after she was meant to receive the prize, Hudson was reunited with her award during an interview on The Graham Norton Show.

Norton presented Hudson with the award in an humorous ceremony reenactment, but the surprise gift left 29-year-old Hudson slightly emotional.
Hudson, who showed off her amazing figure in a tight black Victoria Beckham dress, also spoke to Norton about her recent incredible weight loss.
The actress, who has dropped five dress sizes after adopting the WeightWatchers eating plan, said: 'I’ve had all kinds of reactions.
'People have said, "It’s not Jennifer" or "you look just like Jennifer Hudson… you have her face," even my son doesn’t recognise me from before and he didn’t know me when I was large.'
And Hudson, who is currently in the UK to promote her new album I Remember Me, is also feeling excited about next week's Royal Wedding - especially as she is planning her own nuptials to fiancé David Otunga.
Asked if she would ever get married, Hudson replied: 'Yes. Eventually I am. I am engaged, I have the dress and everything. I hear Kate has four dress options but my dress has four parts in one – it has its own show.'


lol i don't understand how it's took all that time for it to get to her!!

Are we knocking USPS? Rude. I have never had issues with them. More like with UPS/Fed Ex.
nicolesnitchie 22nd-Apr-2011 08:25 pm (UTC)
i've actually never had a problem with USPS, but a few people i know have told me horror stories. never had a problem with UPS or Fed Ex either, tbh.

I don't understand how she got one in the first place. Fate was trying to restore balance to the universe.

the graham norton show does the best interviews ever. i am still laughing at orlando bloom's "eat shit and die, jessica!"
gracestalker 22nd-Apr-2011 08:56 pm (UTC)
They really are. I enjoy the show so much more than all the other late night talk shows.

I've actually had a better service from Royal Mail than from any of the other delivery companies I've had to deal with in the UK.
thecaitlinshow 22nd-Apr-2011 09:02 pm (UTC)

also, i will have eternal love for jennifer hudson because, a, she can siiing like no one's business, and b, i got to interview her once when i was 19 and she could not have been more sweet =]
little_red_91 22nd-Apr-2011 09:08 pm (UTC)
:O wow! and there isn't a vid yet because it airs tonight i think :)
nicolesnitchie 22nd-Apr-2011 09:18 pm (UTC)
i don't think jen's oscar performance was good, but i'm glad she won. it's nice to see someone of color win. and people who are mad about her winning are bitter and sad imo. there are many other people who didn't deserve an oscar, natalie included.

I ordered from stuff from Dorothy Perkins (I'm stateside) in early December last year and they send their stuff using Royal International Mail. I didn't get my clothes until mid-Feb. They had already sent me a refund and everything.

I was at the taping last night and JHud was so excited about it and wouldn't let it go lol.
dazonen 22nd-Apr-2011 09:50 pm (UTC)
I was there too!

She came out with her bodyguard to the line of people waiting before the show and asked "Who just tweeted me that they're outside and waiting to meet me??" and then she found the guy and took a picture with him. Total sweetheart. She was also very pretty in person.
sparkagrace 22nd-Apr-2011 09:57 pm (UTC)
That was so sweet of her.
