Jennifer Hudson fought back tears as she accepted the Favorite Humanitarian award at the People's Choice Awards. Get the details on her emotional speech. The 40th Annual People's Choice Awards - ShowJennifer Hudson fought back tears as she accepted the Favorite Humanitarian Award at the People's Choice Awards.

The 32-year-old Oscar winner, who stepped on to the stage Wednesday night with her big sister Julia Hudson, looked stunning as she picked up the clear trophy, showing off her trim figure in a body-hugging, KaufmanFranco cream dress.

"My mother always taught us that without family you have nothing, and whether you know it or not we are all family and what happens with the other happens with us," Jennifer said. "So, it's very important to make a difference."

"It's one thing to be a celebrity and have power...but it means nothing if we're making a difference with someone else--trying to change a life."

Jennifer was honored for her work with the Julian D. King Gift Foundation, which she founded with Julia in honor of her nephew Julian King, who was killed in 2008, along with their mother and brother, by Julia's estranged husband William Balfour.

The organization's mission is to "provide stability, support and positive experiences for children of all backgrounds to help enable them to grow to be productive, confident and happy adults," according to its website.

Speaking of humanitarian efforts and general acts of kindness, J. Hud gifted her assistant with a house for Christmas and filmed his priceless reaction (see it here).

Talk about giving back!
