Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson named her dogs after her awards
Jennifer Hudson named her dogs after her awards.
The 'Dreamgirls' star christened her pooches in honour of the trophies she has won as both an actress and singer.
She explained: "The boy's called Oscar and the girl is Grammy - and I called their puppies after other awards I won like Golden Globe, Sag, and another is called Bafta."
Despite her success, Jennifer - who appeared on US TV talent show 'American Idol' - admits she is amazed at how well she has done.
She added: "I don't understand it. I have to laugh at myself, like, 'I won an Academy Award?'
"I'm just this normal person. I don't like wearing a lot of make-up or being overdressed all the time. I want to be comfortable, wear no make-up, have my hair all over my head."
Jennifer recently revealed Whitney Houston saved her career.
She said: "I sang a Whitney song on 'American Idol' and we have been in contact ever since. I wouldn't be here without her. There has been nothing better than having her support."
