Mo'Nique Wins Best Supporting Oscar for her role in 'Precious'


Mo'Nique became the fifth Black woman to win an acting Oscar, 70 years after Hattie McDaniel became the first African American to do so for "Gone with the Wind." The 42-year-old stand-up comic portrayed an abusive mother in "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire."

Other African American women to win in the best supporting actress category were Jennifer Hudson for "Dreamgirls" (2006) and Whoopi Goldberg for "Ghost" (1990). Halle Berry was voted best actress for "Monster's Ball" in 2001.


Now is Mo'Nique ready to host mornings at WPGC? It all seems strange... stay tuned.
