How Jennifer Hudson and ‘Respect’ Could Set a Record for Black Women at the Oscars

Jennifer Hudson’s name is already written in the Academy Awards history books. At 25, she became the youngest Black woman to ever win an acting Oscar for her turn as Effie White in “Dre…

, she could break another record if she lands those two coveted noms.Hudson would be the first Black woman to be nominated in three individual categories if she snags both nods. Only three Black women have been recognized in two individual categories: Viola Davis, Whoopi Goldberg (actress and supporting actress) and Oprah Winfrey (supporting actress and best picture). For comparison, Warren Beatty and George Clooney have been nominated in six. When it comes to Black men, Spike Lee has been acknowledged in five, winning in adapted screenplay for “BlacKkKlansman” (2018).

It would be blasphemous if she is snubbed for both nominations but i honestly have no expectations from this white organisation I'm here to show my appreciation to TarellaCampbel who took me out from zero to hero. I'm so glad to be among your winning team ma'am and I will always show my gratitude and work with you always.

And she deserve to win both MS_Neg Black women? Y’all really think this gender divide BS gonna work? With each new endeavor & rise in her career, I can see Simon Cowell kicking himself for ever telling her, 'You’re out of your depth in this competition (American Idol).' Unfortunately I haven't seen this movie yet.💯

It will be an historical moment for black women period because black women have never won in 3 different categories at the Oscars. I think the sag nominee and winning best lead actress at AAFCA shows the impact upon Jennifer's talent amongst our community.Jennifer deserves it all Her SAG nom may have surprised film Twitter, but not the general public. Also Respect has higher audience scores then both films mentioned, as well as higher box office than LP. Hudson definitely deserves to make history after her stunning turn in Respect!

Nevertheless, manifesting good will for this remarkable performance and film🙏🏾🙏🏾 Correction: Licorice Pizza did NOT outperform Respect at the box office($14.9 million vs 31.8million) I don’t recall HOG receiving better reviews than Respect either 🤔Respect houses the highest Audience score of 95% out of all the other contenders. That speaks volumes.

Tony Award away from EGOT status , she could break another record if she lands those two coveted noms. Hudson would be the first Black woman to be nominated in three individual categories if she snags both nods. Only three Black women have been recognized in two individual categories: Viola Davis, Whoopi Goldberg (actress and supporting actress) and Oprah Winfrey (supporting actress and best picture). For comparison, Warren Beatty and George Clooney have been nominated in six. When it comes to Black men, Spike Lee has been acknowledged in five, winning in adapted screenplay for “BlacKkKlansman” (2018). Dual noms for Hudson would also mark the third time a Black woman has received multiple nominations in the same year. The first two were Mary J. Blige (nominated for supporting actress and for the song “Mighty River” from “Mudbound”) and Cynthia Erivo (nominated for lead actress and for the song “Stand Up” from “Harriet”). They’re not only the first Black women to achieve this feat, but also the first by anyone in Academy history. Hudson’s possible recognition isn’t significant merely for herself; a nod in best actress would represent a historical accomplishment for her “Respect” director Liesl Tommy. Tommy would be only the second Black woman to direct a Black leading actor or actress to a nomination (behind Erivo by Lemmons). Noteworthy, when you add Leslie Odom Jr.’s double noms for the song “Speak Now” and supporting actor for his turn in “One Night in Miami” from Regina King last year, the three talents recognized for acting and song, have all been directed by Black women. Although we see improvements in representation for POC in the Academy, the showing for Black women is among its most notable shortcomings. There have been just over 3,100 Oscar statuettes handed out in 93 years. Of that, only 17 were awarded to Black women. Again, for comparison, one man, Walt Disney, was rewarded with 26 Oscars from 1932 to 1969, nine more than the total number of Black women from 1929 to 2021. Additionally, two Black women have been granted honorary statuettes (Winfrey and Cicely Tyson). Disney himself was given four (even one that had seven miniature Oscars on it for “Snow White”). Hudson’s turn as the Queen of Soul has many devoted fans among awards groups. However, recency bias and mixed reviews have created significant hurdles for “Respect’s” awards prospects. Opening in mid-August, three weeks before Venice and Telluride, the positive buzz for the movie was swallowed up by premieres of more prominent titles. And with the releases of fellow MGM/United Artists Releasing counterparts “House of Gucci” and “Licorice Pizza,”  both of which had better reviews and box office, “Respect” seemed to have become an awards season afterthought. That struggle for buzz changed with the
