In her acceptance speech that night, she called her beau the "love of my life."

American Idol alum Jennifer Hudson donned a multicolored long-sleeved dress and a pair of black thigh-high boots. She said it felt "so good" to spend the night with her pals like Taraji P. Henson and Berry.
The Oscar winner flashed a smile in a colorful frock that had a peplum tail.
