I knew she'd win. Last night, Baltimore county native Mo'Nique won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as Mary Jones in "Precious." Her role and the movie received lots of criticism for its portrayal of negative blacks. But I say Mo'Nique deserved the award. She gave an honest, emotional and passionate performance. Congrats to her. Also, Geoffrey Fletcher became the first black to win screenwriting honors last night. He won for "Precious'" screenplay. Photo courtesy of Bossip.com.
