ABC, the network that airs the Academy Awards ceremonies each year, has the Person of the Week as its weekly closer. Anchor Charles Gibson chose Jennifer Hudson, Oscar-nominated as best performing actress for her role in Dreamgirls. Hudson had been a contestant on FOX's American Idol. Gibson could not resist replaying the taunt by the talent show's notorious Simon Cowell--"I do not think you are capable of doing anything better"--and then Cowell's gracious retraction: "There are good performances. Occasionally there are extraordinary performances. And that was extraordinary, Jennifer." Declared Hudson on ABC's The View talkshow: "We ain't fat. We are thick."
