    I think that’s great news and well cast, to have Jennifer Hudson play the Queen of Soul. Especially, considering, that she was one of Aretha Franklin choices to play her.

    Last time Jennifer Hudson was around the Oscar scene, she won Best Supporting Actress for Dreamgirls. Do you think with the right director, promotion, distributor, Hudson can have a comeback and achieve a Best Actress nom?

    Lol I know, there is probably no script, or anything about the movie planned yet, other than talks, but I just wanna know what y’all think, is Hudson on her way to get more accolades in the acting department?

    I think it’s definitely possible.

    These past years I noticed the Academy has lost its interests about musical biopic. I hope this JHud/Aretha thing can do wonders.

    Wait, Bohemian Rhapsody is waiting in the wings. We’ll see if that one can score an Oscar gong this year so maybe the Academy will take look once it’s done.

    She might be coming for a second Oscar (nomination) even sooner since she’ll be singing the showstopper “Memory” in the movie musical adaptation of CATS, arriving in theatres next Christmas 2019.

    I think Cats will be her chance to get a nom.

    Cats is her best bet for a sophomore nod and possibly a second win.

    She is a good actress so I think she can nail her role in Cats perfectly (Plus she has the showstopper of all broadway songs that has been ever written). As for the Aretha one……I think that could be amazing but at the same time I’m also a bit worried since Aretha did so much and to have that all packed in might mean the script might feel like its just checking off boxes.

    Well this movie is in such early stages she might end up being replaced or dropping out or whatever.

    I think Cats is going to be a disaster, but at least it looks like a much better discussion for Hudson’s second Oscar nomination than the Aretha biopic which will definitely come after Cats.

    Having Memory as her song and people anticipating that moment is basically the same situation as her own win and Hathaway’s win. So that looks far more likely *right now*.

    You have the same actress from one win and the same director from the other win as the people in charge of Memory. Could work.

    Of course she could. She is perfect for the role.

    Absolutely. Aretha’s life is tailor made for an Oscar bait film.
