  • firemenfriends

    What a hot woman

  • Tracy

    So proud and soooo happy for her!!! She deserved it.

  • happy girl

    i think gaboury deserved not mo’nique but glad for her and glad lots of girls have seen this movie. it will help them be more aware and more able to talk about abuse.

  • Go Ask Alice

    GOOD LORD! HER LEGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They are hairy.

    Is thata joke…underphotoshopped?

    She is a comic so is she making a joke?

    Luckly that is a gown so her legs weren’t showing.

  • SubSub

    Very happy for Monique, and I do agree with #7 (Happy Girl). Gaboury should have won best actress as well. Although she is a newcomer, her acting skills surpass some of Hollywood’s “finest”.

  • Sam

    They’re joking with this, right? Mo’Nique…award winner.

  • Celia

    I’m SO happy she won!! Her acceptance speech was amazing!!
    She was so BRILLIANT in Precious. She deserved this award!

  • liks

    She looks HOT here!!!!!

  • shoegal421

    she looks great but i hate how she always rags on thin people.


    Utter Perfection !!!!

    Perfect gown in every way. Fit, color, style, and appropriateness

    Perfect color for skin tone, perfect color for an award show, and it even matches her Golden Globe.

    VERY FEW get it right their first time out. A Goddess !

  • ann

    Her award was well-deserved. Congrats!

  • Joanne

    great. she deserved it


    To Alice;

    Try to be more culturally knowledgeable.

    The majority of African American women do not covet a hairless body, Body hair is unique to each culture.

    Ignorance mixed with intolerance is NEVER beautiful.

  • Manic

    Love her!

  • Common Sense

    “I celebrate this award with all the Preciouses, with all the Marys — I celebrate this award with every person that’s ever been touched,” she said. “It’s now time to tell. And it’s okay.”

    Brilliant! Congrats to a genuine woman.

  • lalalove

    Congrats to Monique. She definately deserved it!!!!!!

  • Leila


  • Toni

    Tim Gunn—speak for yourself.. It has never been the African American culture to not shave our legs! Good God! I have heard it all!

  • black beauty

    yaaaaaaaaaaay congrats monique and she looks great

  • haha

    Tim Gunn – You’re the one who needs cultural lessons.

  • FrESH

    She looks great. Congrats.

  • bbwsocialnetwork

    I love her body

  • SopperSexi

    Bravo for this. she was a true monster in precious. fabulous acting. hats off to her!

  • jade

    Love Mo’Nique. She looked lovely and she is so humble. I’am glad she won. Beautiful Lady.

  • vee

    I am a black woman and I have never shaved my legs. Why shave them? Culturally we were not raised to shave our legs. The only razor in my house growing up were my dads. Now I will say the younger generations do shave trying to be like everybody else. Lets be ourselves I am 43. Did you get a razor from your mother? Probably not. Of course there are always exceptions.

  • aeg

    I’m very happy for Monique!!!
    Nice look, and the dress really fits her, BUT, there’s only 1 thing… she should’ve shaved her hands.

  • raena

    she is wonderful but
    YUCK! her legs, what is up with that? you’re at the golden globes for gods sake, at least invest in a razor. sheesh :)

  • oprah

    Mo’Nique looked like her amazing self! Here’s hoping for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar in her hands!

  • Ravi

    @TIM GUNN:

    How dare you make a gross generalization about African American Women. Maybe you are the one in need of an education and then you would realize that the so called “majority” of African American women do not share your opinion. We SHAVE OUR LEGS!!! This is America for shit’s sake!

  • Myra

    I am a black woman and I shave my legs. All black women are not like Monique.

  • Whoever


    VEE SHUTUP!!! I am convinced that you are Tim Gunn undercover trying to save face for the dumbest comment of the night! Your wrong, stupid, and irrational!

  • Kevin

    Congrats Mo’Nique …. I also believe you truly deserved it. Sapphire told an honest and much-needed-to-hear story about abuse and triumph. I saw both Precious and Avatar… both worth of nomination and worth of the Golden Globe!

    Congrats to Gabourey Sidibe on her nomination as well… I hope to see you in alot more films!

  • Towana

    OK I did not see that picture where she is deliberately showing her legs. Please shave your legs. That looks really bad.

  • Inaru

    Wow, she looks so beautiful, elegant and ladylike, just perfect.

  • Jen

    Great speech, loved the dress. She is amazing and deserved it.

  • ellie’

    Congrats to Monique… What an amazing speech..

  • yo sista

    goo Mo-Nique!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and haters why don’t cha do somethin’? HummmmmmmHUH yall jealous? go get a cold shower!

  • remember da truth

    Thank you, Toni — I was sitting here stunned thinking I had seen beautiful black ladies’ legs all my life and never hairy.

  • seniordatematch

    She is so hot

  • Khristi

    She looked amazing and I think she didn’t shave her legs because she is wearing a floor length gown. Go Monique.

  • Oceane

    Her speech made me cry..

  • lakers fan in boston

    ughh, those legs r nasty
    i think she has hairier legs than me
    i never watched watched precious but i heard it was good
    it’s kinda funny how i remember watching her on that show, i forget the name but i think it was with her daughter, and now she’s a golden globe winner
    congrats =]

  • nea

    @Ravi: exactly! in America and especially at events like these women (heck even men nowadays) shave their legs and groom themselves. I would even remove the hair from the arms!

  • rocky

    @happy girl:

    I think they were both AMAZING in this movie. I agree with you — hope this movie helps those who need to ‘tell it’. No child should EVER be put through what Precious was put through — NO ONE!

  • T

    Mo’Nique looks gorgeous and she definitely deserved this!

    As for her legs, everybody does not have the same standards of beauty. She is a smart woman and she knew what she was doing when she lifted her gown to show her unshaved legs. I think that’s her way of saying “my legs are hairy, I’m beautiful and I’m proud!” Her husband obviously likes it!!

  • T Shirts

    I guess size doesn’t matter!
