Jennifer Hudson takes her 'Oscar' for walks: It's her dog

April 16, 2013|By Greg Braxton

Jennifer Hudson has two Oscars at home. One is the Academy Award she won for her supporting role as Effie in "Dreamgirls." The other is a dog.

During herĀ appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Hudson said she names her dogs after awards she has won. In addition to the male Pomeranian named Oscar, she has a female Pomeranian named Grammy, which she named right before she received her first Grammy Award. Oscar and Grammy's baby is named "Dreamgirl."

She told Kimmel she wants two other dogs: "I want to name them Emmy and Tony."

Kimmel warned her against naming dogs after awards, but then quipped, "I have a dog named Pie Eating Contest."
