A grieving Jennifer Hudson leads the pack with seven NAACP Image Award nominations, which were announced Wednesday (by hottie Corbin Bleu!) in both film and music categories.
Hudson faces off with Beyonce Knowles (who is up for six awards) and Alicia Keys in the outstanding female music artist, best music video and outstanding supporting actress categories.
Hudson, who starred with Keys and Queen Latifah in The Secret Life of Bees, is nominated for her acting in the film with Keys, while Beyonce is up for her role as Etta James in Cadillac Records.
The 40th NAACP Image Awards will air on Feb. 12 and will be hosted by Halle Berry and Tyler Perry.
