Simon Cowell slams Oscar winner

Simon Cowell may be back in Jennifer Hudson’s bad books after apparently slating the Oscar winner for not thanking him in her acceptance speech.

Mr Nasty thinks Jen should have praised American Idol for launching her career while picking up her Best Supporting Actress award for Dreamgirls, according to the Daily Express.

“Some people turn against the show that made them successful and that’s kind of weird,” Simon told the paper.

“Jennifer said Idol was ‘a stepping stone’. No, it was her opportunity to get noticed. She got noticed and then she got Dreamgirls.

“Singers like her come to Idol after every other door has been slammed in their face.”

But the 25-year-old had every reason not to give Simon a special mention – after she only came seventh on the show. Jennifer proved the judges wrong by scooping both the Oscar and the Bafta for Best Supporting Actress for Dreamgirls.
