goooooooooo monique

# 2

great look for her shape. love the color.

# 3

Although I’ve had my issues with her she gave THE performace of the year adn truly deserved this. She explained on E’s after party show that the blue color is the same that Hattie McDaniel wore when she got her Oscar and the flower is the same flower that hattie McDaniel wore as well. McDaniel won for Gone With The Wind and was the first African American to win an Academy Award.

Her speech was GREAT!
.
She gave thanks to those who came before her, and those who matter to her in her life.
.
Mo’Nique was right about the politics — folks had a problem with her not promoting the movie for enough. That stuff shouldn’t matter, only your performance.
.
I really dislike the movie and was happy she didn’t kiss the director’s a** like they usually do. She kept it real, and she kept it classy. From what I heard, she gave a great perform so kudos to her!

Jared!!! Do a post on Samuel Jackson facial expression?! I really want to know why he did it! Hilarious!

You go Mo’Nique.
Congratulations.
Well deserved.

She looked good and she deserved it.

Okay now I’m curious about Sam Jackson’s facial expression. I will have to check YouTube

She was not good, and she did not deserve to win the most coveted award. Woman doesn’t have enough respect for people in general to clean herself up and shave her legs, she is a nasty slob. Her performance in “Precious” was overrated, and sub-par at best. I dislike people who carry themselves with a certain air of self-entitlement, and she is one of them. B*tch, you are nothing but a second rate, stand-up comedian, get over it.

So happy for her, she’s come a long way! Very well deserved.

Her speech was great!

Hers was a stunning performance.
@Ilia: You’re a hilarious hyena.

She acted like she was only the second black woman to even be invited to the Oscars. Sam Jackson was reacting to her pre-racial drama. He’s like; “We’re past that, ma’am. We’ve been getting good roles and awards, this is not a breakthrough so enough with the drama.”

Halle Berry… Jennifer Hudson… ( who was ALSO a fat woman, also a newcomer)

She is a racist!

I love Monique and I’m happy for her success. She deserves to win IMO.

I think she deserved to win this award.. just her speech was really unnecessary .. It was a bit rude & condescending ..

She is a bit”h and racist. She was great in the movie but probably played herself in terms of the personality.She will not get another role She is not well-liked and very demanding for no reason

you know i never really liked her only because i felt like she over did it when acting. seems ignorant and rude. i was stuck somewhere and the movie was on. didnt get to see the whole thing but seen a enough skit of her in it and she had me believing. Thought she was great. She definetly deserves this one. CONGRATS MO!!!!!

She just deserves it cause man she make me hate that character she played, and god knows i don’t hate anyone in real life !!

You go girl cause u were brilliant in that last office scene !

Go Ask Alice @ 03/08/2010 at 6:59 pm

I am Black American.

Monique looked great.
She is a plus size girl but sure has a good stylist who suits her upn right and makes the adjustments and Monique carrries her frame with grace, confidence.

Her speech was racist. Her speech was not neccesary.Not everything and everybody in the world is racist or about race.
How great it would have been if she just thanked the cast, crew, Gabby esp., the director,Perry Tyler and Oprah Winfrey for taking a financial risk on this great movie and her, and thanked her family , friends,and esp husband and son for all their time,love, and support.
Then she could have played the hum,ble and gracious card by saying how honored and thankful she is to the Acad emy and that she is so very grateful and , long way from being in the entertainment business from she she first started out.Thank you all.
THE END!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If anyone wants to hear a classy, gracious and wonderful,sincere speech, check out Hattie McDaniel’s speech.

Also, Hattie Berry’s speech was way over the top….uneccesary.

Tired of people doing the race card! Enuf!

Good actress? Yes.

she did not need to do that kind of “rub it in” speech. Wrong place to do the race card type speech
