“d*mn mo’nique skipped director lee daniels in her acceptance … wonder why.. im glad mo’nique won shes a cool down to earth woman.” (Q-Tip’s Twitter)
In the film Precious, Mo’Nique also shared screen time with actress Paula Patton and singer Mariah Carey.
Her chilling portrayal of Mary, a verbally, physically and sexually abusive mother to the title character, had an intensity unmatched by any of the other nominees, who were Penelope Cruz in “Nine,” Maggie Gyllenhaal in “Crazy Heart,” and Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick in “Up in the Air.” (Reuters)
