Mo'Nique Makes History

Mo'Nique has done a fabulous job this year in the entertainment industry, so much that as of Sunday, March 7th 2010, she became the fifth African American woman to win an Oscar for an acting performance at the 82nd Academy Awards .

Mo'Nique got a lot of praise for her role as an abusive welfare mom in the Indie film "Precious". The Baltimore native was highly favored in the "Best Supporting Actress" category and nabbed the award from Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Penelope Cruz. The only other black supporting actress winners were Jennifer Hudson for "Dreamgirls" and Whoopi Goldberg for "Ghost." Mo'Nique is very talented and I feel that she really deserved that Oscar for real.

The night also started out promising for this wonderful film when Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams presented the Adapted Screenplay Award to Geoffrey Fletcher for "Precious" which is based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire. Congrats to Mariah Carey, Lee Daniels and especially the star of the movie, Anne Marie FoxGabourey Sidibe.
