Beyonce Knowles shed a tear when 'Dreamgirls' co-star Jennifer Hudson won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar on Sunday night.The singer-and-actress - wearing a revealing white Armani gown - was overcome by emotion as the 'American Idol' contestant tearfully accepted her Oscar.A source said: "Beyonce wiped away tears as she watched Jennifer get up on stage to accept her award." Later on, the two girls performed a medley of songs from 'Dreamgirls'. Beyonce's track 'Listen' was nominated for Best Song, along with 'Love You I Do' and 'Patience' - both of which are also from the film.
The Oscar for Best Song eventually went to 'I Need to Wake Up' from the global warming documentary 'An Inconvenient Truth', which was made and stars Al Gore Beyonce and Jennifer were rumoured to have an ongoing rivalry on the set of 'Dreamgirls', but both have denied the claims. Beyonce - who wasn't nominated at this year's Academy Awards - has previously admitted it is her dream to one day win an Oscar.
Eddie Murphy stormed out of the Oscars after losing the Best Supporting Actor award, it has been reported. When Alan Arkin was announced as the winner, the entire downstairs bar erupted into rapturous applause, but a short-tempered Eddie left shortly after with girlfriend Tracey Edmonds. He snapped: "It's fine. It happens. It's OK." The 45-year-old's early departure resulted in him missing the performance of his 'Dreamgirls' co-stars Jennifer Hudson and Beyonce Knowles. He also missed Jennifer collecting her Best Supporting Actress prize and her tearful acceptance speech. Eddie reportedly arrived in an irritable mood, sucking on a lollipop and asking, "How do we know where we're going?" before eventually finding his seat.
