Congratulations to Mo’nique for her Oscar nomination and win for Best Supporting Actress in a Film for PRECIOUS. If you read the book PUSH you know that Monique took on a very ugly role. The character,Mary, in the book and film was a monster to her own child and there was nothing pretty or redeeming about her. Mo’nique earned her Oscar years ago. She earned it when she was being abused by her brother and earned it when she used her own experience to help her portrayed this character. Kudos Mo’nique for a job well done.
