She immersed herself in the role of Mary, Claireece “Precious” Jones’ mother, in the critically acclaimed movie, Precious. And she had Hollywood, and black America, buzzing about her portrayal even before the movie was released. And now she’s won a Golden Globe. Congrats, Mo’Nique!
In a recent New York Times piece, she talked about how she would not campaign for an award and that the proof was already in the pudding. See the movie, decide for yourselves, the end. And it looks like her tactics are paying off. Has she positioned herself to be an Oscar favorite? What’d you think of her speech?
