Congrats are in order for Mo’Nique. She's won the Trifecta of Awards leading up to the Academy Awards next month!
Kudos for winning the Best Supporting Actress award
at the 15th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.
And The Golden Globe Award for
Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a motion picture!
These three awards shows are the precursor to that all important Academy Awards and generally when an actor/actress wins the first three awards...they are considered a shoo-in to win that Oscar!! You GO Girl!!! We are ALL rooting for you mama!!!
Work it out girl!!!
UPDATE: I just checked the list of the 2010 nominees for an Academy Award and GTFOH!!! These mofo's completely overlooked her in the Best Supporting Actress category!! Her performance was CLEARLY one of the best one on screen in a long time....y'all suck over at the academy of motion picture sciences....SMDH.....this has GOT to be wrong....
Further Update: Okay, I thought this sounded suspicious (there is just NO IGNORING her performance as Mary Jones) further research is telling me that the OFFICIAL nominations will be announced on February 2nd at 5:30am (PST)..(thanks for the correction on the date Mary Moore!)
She'd BETTER be on that damn ballot on Feb 7th....that's all i'm saying....
The 82nd Academy Awards are scheduled to air on March 7, 2010.
