Jennifer Hudson... was adequate at best. The sassy, stout black girl being... well, sassy and stout. And sad. But then, sassy again. If we use up all the superlatives on someone who is merely (and often barely) competent, then what is left for those who show true genius? Viola Davis is the truth. Google, ninjas. Jennifer Hudson? A compilation of cultural cliches, pre-fab "realness" and the slightest, most feeble gestures toward a real character. Shit, bring back Halle's titties.
