Jennifer Hudson won an Academy Award last month.
So it's not like her career is in trouble.
â€œJennifer has to follow her intuition â€¦ Iâ€™d look for something next thatâ€™s just fun. Do a silly comedy if itâ€™s in your gut.â€ - Kirsten Dunst
â€œIâ€™d suggest Jennifer do a straight drama or comedy â€¦ musicals are a limited genre and you canâ€™t really make a career out of that.â€ - John Travolta
â€œI would do some drama if I were her. Thatâ€™s what I was really impressed by in Dreamgirls. I knew she was a great singer.â€ - Randy Jackson
That all makes sense. As for the future of Sanjaya Malakar? That may be harder to predict.
