Trivia: Dreamgirls
  • Author Existence Failure: Tom Eyen died in 1991, forcing Henry Krieger to collaborate with three separate groups of lyricists on the film's Movie bonus songs.
  • Award Category Fraud: Jennifer Hudson was given an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress for the film of Dreamgirls, even though the role of Effie White is seen as a lead on stage and had earned Jennifer Holliday a Tony for Best Leading Actress in a Musical.
  • Dawson Casting: Despite the fact she played Lorrell, who was the youngest of the Dreams, Anika Noni Rose is the oldest of the three women by almost a decade.
  • Dyeing for Your Art: Jennifer Hudson, while having a nice set of curves herself, had to bulk up to play Effie as depicted onstage.
  • Life Imitates Art: See Billing Displacement in the main section.
