An "Idol" Academy Award Winner...It's Going to Happen!

Congratulations to Jennifer Hudson on winning the Screen Actors Guild Award for Actress in a Supporting Role last night.

But the biggest congratulations are yet to come for Jennifer.

Yes, ladies and gentleman, it is going to happen. An "Idol" cast-off is going to win an Academy Award.

Now, it is possible that something could still happen to knock her win off-track, but it's very rare for someone to take home the Golden Globe and the SAG and not win the Oscar--especially since many of the same people vote for the SAGs and the Oscars...

And I still haven't seen the movie yet!

The Academy Awards air February 25th at 8 p.m. on ABC...
