by | December 20, 2006 | Comments

"Dreamgirls," the feature adaptation of the Broadway musical, took top honors in four categories including Best Musical or Comedy and Best Director (Bill Condon), Best Supporting Actress (Jennifer Hudson), and Best Sound in the 11th Annual Satellite Awards held Sunday, December 17.

Tying "Dreamgirls" with four wins was "The Departed," which won Best Drama, Best Supporting Actor (Leonardo DiCaprio), Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Ensemble. The WWII epic "Flags of Our Fathers," in addition to netting the dramatic Best Director prize for Clint Eastwood, also won the Best Cinematography and Best Art Direction honors.

Jennifer Hudson, right, has a lot to sing about.

Helen Mirren ("The Queen") and Forest Whitaker ("The Last King of Scotland") were respectively awarded Best Actress and Actor in a Drama, while Meryl Streep ("The Devil Wears Prada") and Joseph Cross ("Running With Scissors") were their counterparts in the Comedy or Musical category.
