Hudson skyrocketed to stardom with her film debut in Dreamgirls, which earned her the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Hudson's self-titled debut album won the Grammy for Best R&B Album in 2008. She released her sophomore album, I Remember Me, in early 2012. Hudson can next be seen on the upcoming second season of NBC's SMASH.
