Los Angeles: Actress Jennifer Hudson says she is always conscious of the fact that she is an Oscar winning actress.
The 32-year-old won an Academy award for the best supporting actress in her 2006 debut movie `Dreamgirls`. The actress is always reminded of her achievement while working now, reports contactmusic.com.
"When I did `Dreamgirls`, nobody was paying attention to me so I had nothing to prove. Now, I`m the `Academy Award winner, Jennifer Hudson`, so everybody is watching," said Hudson.
The actress was noticed when she came as a contestant of US singing show `American Idol` in 2004. She went on to feature in movies like `The Secret Life Of Bees`, `The Three Stooges` and `The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete`.
