Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Steve Harvey & More Get STARS On Hollywood Walk Of Fame + Jenny's "Winnie" Trailer RELEASED

Jennifer Hudson's trailer for the controversial biopic Winnie has been released.  Watch it inside and find out what celebs will be joining Jen on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next year.

 

We told you earlier about Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson starring in Winnie, a biopic that chronicles the life of Winnie Mandela, and now the theatrical trailer has been released.  Directed by Darrell Roodt, the film, shown at several movie festivals around the world, charts Winne's life from her childhood through her husband Nelson Mandela's incarceration and her own year in solitary confinement.  Terrence Howard will be starring opposite Jen as Nelson Mandela, and I'm sure there will be Oscar-buzz once again for both of them next year.   

Watch the trailer here:


 

In other J-Hud news, the actress joins a long list of fabulous entertainers who will all be honored with stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next year.  Other YBF folks who'll be honored at Viola Davis, Usher, Luther Vandross and Steve Harvey.  Much deserved.

I sure hope that Winnie has

I sure hope that Winnie has more lines than the trailer shows (where Mandela talks most of the time). Has she not done anything in her life or why is she referred to the "wife that stood by him"? Talk abt reducing a person to an accessory.

Its ok but I really think

Its ok but I really think there must be some black South African actresses who could have done a better job on acting Winnie. Really this girl could not say amandla properly. As a way to give to South Africa for this mving story of a woman I believe who really stood by her husband although I dont believe she did so till the end.RESPECT AFRICA AND USE AFRICAN ACTORS FOR AFRICAN ROLES...

*Sigh* I don't like

*Sigh* I don't like theglamorized/commercialized feel and honestly, I would have preferred an actress/actor of South African descent playing the lead roles. Jhud and Terrance Howards are great in their field, don't get me wrong, but I would love to see hollywood taking a few chances with native Africans. By way of experience, they bring to the screen a fealing of "reality" and a spiritual weight/history that stories like this deserve. Im sure it will be a commercial success, but I hope we can go beyond what appeals to what's true.

Loved your comment, its

Loved your comment, its exactly how felt watching the entire trailer. Using Jhud, and Terrance makes it look to Hollywood. Like something someone wrote up. The story of Winnie and Nelson is as raw and real life as you can get, they should have gone to South Africa for principal roles. Jhud looks like she will do an amazing job, but watching Terrance, and that accent smh it hurts.

God has given her great

God has given her great talent which she is the process of honing. But she is about as far away from a Hollywood Walk of Fame place as I am. How does her music career even remotely compare to that of Usher or Luther? Has her album ever sold 1.3 million in one week like the Backstreet Boys? She was in a few "ok" movies, but has she ever directed block busters like Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind and How The Grinch Stole Christmas like Ron Howard? And if she can get a star I think Beyonce has proved that as a solo artist she deserves her own star the way MJ received one separate from The J5. I'm sorry but this star just faded with the inclusion of Jennifer Hudson. I am not saying it won't come in time, but TIME is the operative word. She needs to put some in already.

Brilliant trailer regarding

Brilliant trailer regarding Melanated peoples struggles against European colonization.(Global Slavery and Oppression) Honored to see Black Hollywood depicting Autochtonians/ Indigenousness people in historical roles yet I'm still waiting on the Epic motion picture regarding Ethiopian Moors of Europe who ruled the World for 700 years, (711AD-1492AD) but the average young person has no idea of the existence and historical contributions of the African/Ethiopian Moors to the World. No more Foolywang depictions Please Black HollyWood our young people have a thirst for knowledge regarding there true History. Make sure we support our own "what does it profit a man to gain the whole world but loose his soul. Say No to Madae/Mammie stereotypical minstrel satire and Yes to “Winnie” historical depiction of strong melanated women. Remember those who call themselves African American out of ignorance are the true Autochtons of America (Note: Historically less than 2% of Blacks or melanated beings in America came via slave ships from Africa) Like Michael Jackson (RIP 6,25,09) said our true history has been suppressed by the racist European ideology of white supremacy, yet Thanks to the scholarship of Dr Ivan Van Sertima RIP we understand the so-called negro was in America 1st thus we are the true American’s the descendant of the Lumoorian and Atlantian people and everyone else Is an immigrant. “Google” it to get a better understanding "They came before Columbus" by Dr Ivan Van Sertima. So TD Jakes and Oprah in 2013 Black Hollywood should do a movie based on Dr Sertima's Book and maybe Nas and Jay Z can star in it? Blockbuster!!! ASHE

I cant say i'm looking

I cant say i'm looking forward to seeing this movie because there was a very very dark side to Winnie Mandela hense the controversy about this picture and hense why nelson mandela divorced her shortly after he was released from prison. From the trailer, this seems to have been removed completely. When we retell history, lets stick to the facts and not choose what we think is significant. But ofcourse, this is a TD Jakes project.....can we expect the to see the anything but a story with a happy ending?

I agree. Next project will

I agree. Next project will have Beyonce playing Miriam Makeba-total insanity. The story will be even greater if its stays in closer alignment to its truth.

Horrible depiction of Nelson

Horrible depiction of Nelson and Winnie. Jennifer's accent is atrocious, as an Afrikaans its like listening to finger nails on a chalk board. I hope the plot and story is better than the acting.

For those who keep saying

For those who keep saying there's a time frame for getting a star on the hollywood walk of fame...Its whenever you pay your money. They don't just give it to you, you have to pay and some don't wish to pay thus they don't have one. Thats all it takes....a check.

Jennifer has sold her soul to

Jennifer has sold her soul to the devil, this is why she has been an overnight superstar. Secret societies are real. You don't make it to the top without giving up something. I pray my people will open their eyes to the evil that goes on in Hollywood. She traded her family for fame and success. I don't care if you disagree. I've done my research. Do yours before you tear me down. Reading is fundamental.

You are absolutely correct!

You are absolutely correct! It's easy for people, who fail to be educated about such claims, to dismiss them as conspiracy theories, but what you wrote is 100% spot on. Some will continue to dismiss your claim because of laziness or ignorance, and some will delve more into it and find out for themselves.

@ Anonymous 1:52, I use to be

@ Anonymous 1:52, I use to be one of those people who rolled my eyes every time someone mentioned secret societies and what not, I never cared about all that Illuminati crap. Every time you read something, this person was apart of the Illuminati, that person was apart of the Illuminati, blah, blah, blah. Jennifer Hudson is apart of SOMETHING, not sure which society, but she's definitely IN. She's sold her soul to someone or something. I realize that she's one of a few black actresses that have an Oscar, but come on, something ain't quite right here. Over the last 6 months I've heard all kinds of Jennifer Hudson secret society rumors, everything from her family being sacrificed to a Whitney Houston connection. Clive and Jen Hud were on CNN giving an interview, talking about Jennifer will be the next Whitney, the next day Whitney is dead.................I'm just sayin, just sayin something ain't right here.
