The most powerful movie I saw in 2009 was Precious.
In a matter of two hours, Mo’Nique transcended in my eyes from semi-known comedian to acting powerhouse.
At tonight’s Golden Globes, Mo’Nique brought Hollywood royalty to their knees with an acceptance speech for her win as Best Supporting Actress that had me worshipping her once again. Even Drew Barrymore admitted that Mo’Nique “set the bar for the rest of the acceptance speeches” and called her a “goddess.”
Thankfully, Mo’Nique was wearing a Reem Acra gown that epitomized her goddess status as well as a showstopping 15-carat bracelet by Martin Katz.
If you haven’t seen Precious, go see it right this minute, because come Oscar-time, there’s no doubt that Mo’Nique is going to dominate once again.
The 2010 Golden Globes were held at the Beverly Hills Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA on January 17, 2010.
