Comedian turned TV talk show host Mo'Nique became only the fourth black woman in history to win a coveted Oscar award last night during the 82nd Annual Academy Awards held in Hollywood. The other 3 actresses to win Academy awards are Hattie McDaniel (the first black male or female to win an Oscar), Whoopi Goldberg, Halle Berry and Jennifer Hudson.

Mo'Nique, who won for her searing dramatic portrayal of an abusive welfare mother in 'Precious', also became the first stand up comedienne to win an Oscar. After a rumored falling out with down low director Lee Daniels, Mo'Nique, 42, refused to help promote the film last year leading to speculation that she wanted to be paid to promote the film along with co-stars Gabourey Sidibe and Mariah Carey.

Some say it may have been Daniels diva attitude and egomania that cost him the Oscar. Backstage at the Indie Awards on Friday, Daniels said, "We've won already," when asked about his Oscar chances.

Mo'Nique's deliberate omission of Daniels' name in her acceptance speech drew this side eye glance from veteran actor Samuel Jackson which lit up Twitter.com last night and became a trending topic.

Sadly, Sidibe, 26, failed in her bid to become the youngest Oscar winner in the Best Actress category for her leading role in 'Precious'. It just wasn't her time as she lost to Sandra Bullock who took home the trophy for her heartfelt performance in the tearjerker 'The Blind Side.'

Bullock also won a Razzie for the same performance, and made history by becoming the first actress to win both the Razzie and an Oscar on the same weekend.

Surprisingly, a movie that nobody saw, 'The Hurt Locker' upset 'Avatar' for the Best Picture Oscar. In what will certainly be viewed as a snub to the legendary director, James cameron -- his ex-wife, Kathryn Bigelow, won the Oscar for best director. Cameron, who sat behind Bigelow, said, "Yes, yes" and gave her a standing ovation as she accepted her first ever Oscar.

    I'm happy for Monique, I wish she would have just said,God first, instead of thanking the academy lol. Did anybody notice that she said god last? Maybe it was nerves lol. I was uncomfortable with that hmm. I did notice she didn't mention Lee either wowza!

  • free

    where do i begin? shouting out (and attempting to look like) the legendary hattie mcdaniels only because she and TP are doing a movie about her.

    and what was up with that speech? the only drama surrounding precious was among blacks not the academy. white people had no politics about this movie; the loved it. her speech was really condescending.

    CONGRATS MONIQUE! WHEN IT'S YOUR SEASON-NOTHING OR NO ONE CAN BLOCK YOUR BLESSINGS!!!

    MONIIQUE'S WIN IS A WIN FOR THE MOVIE ITSELF, DIRECTOR, AND CAST, IN MY OPINION!

  • http://www.twitter.com/karazinatl KaraZ

    Katryn Bigelow is the first woman to win for Best Director, tha's not making the news it should IMO, considering it's Women's History Month & all.

    Congrats to Monique, hopefully this opens the doors for actual roles in Hollywood vs. the coontastic buffonery that was ordinarily open to her. Gabourey didn't win, but the fact that she was nominated must still be a huge triumph for her, I mean look at how long some folks been working, and still haven't gotten a nomination yet.

  • http://twitter.com/LaydeeJustice LadyJustice *\o/*

    congrats monique!

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    I'm excited for her win for her role in Precious. I've heard everything on Twitter last night about her winning an Oscar for portraying a drug addicted mother but that role really opened peoples' (not only white people) eyes regarding some of the struggles blacks go through. If you had to put it up on the big screen then so be it. There is a "precious" somewhere right now and I felt the role needed to be played. BAM, POW!! She won! Go Monique!

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    Oh and that look on Samuel face is jealousy!! :nana:

    Gabby was up against fierce competition. To me, she was a winner last night. She came out of nowhere to be right up there with legendary A-list actresses. Team Gabby :cheer:

    I am fuming about Avatar! I love love love that movie. It was a conspiracy!

  • free

    i rolled my eyes too like WTF is she talking about. she didn't even show her director any love when she got the award, strutted her *ss on up there, and went in on the academy like she knew what she was talking about when she is actually the 5th black actress to receive an award (and they seem to be waay more open to us than they used to be). what does she know about the struggle? sam has been around doing great acting for a long time. he's professionally trained and knows the game better than anybody.

    You're right. She did not have to mention Daniel Lee's name, it was a win for all.

  • http://oneperfectassistant.com ggouch

    Good morning SR fam...the rumor mills say the look on Sam's face is due in part to his opinion that unofficially trained actors are not worthy of oscars and grammys. He doesn't take monique seriously as an actress. and becaus he goes out for any and every roll even those intended for white actors, he feels color is not an obsticle and doesn't like when black actors make it about color (i.e Political).

  • Bella

    Nobody saw 'Hurt Locker', Sandra? Um, I don't think so. That was one of the best movies made in 2009. Better than 'Avatar'. Hurt locker deserved that oscar.

  • lexdiamonz

    regardless of what hairy legs and all mo played that damn part baltimore stand up!!!!! sam is a hater nothing he has done is oscar-worthy he act like samuel jackson in every damn movie so mo stepped totally out of element and made folks hate her that baby is acting

  • lexdiamonz

    i saw the hurt locker didn't get it but i really thought avatar was cool and well made

    Samuel Jackson needs to SAT DOWN and shut up. Not everyone is going to be classically trained, doesn't mean they don't have talent or don't work hard. Monique did an awesome job playing that wicked mother, who cares if she didn't go to Yale drama school, she nailed her role. I don't care someone's path in how they arrived to a position, as long as they prove that they are worthy to be in a position, She has proved it.

    As far as him going out for every single role, he needs to be honest about why he does it... not because he's passionate, but because he was a serious gambled (common addiction for ex-druggies) and has to keep working to pay off his debt. He gets a side-eye from me.

  • Cinderella

    Lets all wait for Sam Jackson to explain "the look". Either way he's entitled to his own opinion. I didn't care for Monique's speech nor what she wore either.
    Sidenote: Having a difference of opinion doesn't make someone a hater.

  • http://youtube.com yesindeedio

    You know I think that Sam is getting a bad rap. I don't think he did anything wrong because Mo got a side eye from me when she said "Thank you to the Academy Award for showing is not about the POLITICS..." Did you see the look on Tyler Perry's face?

    This is the same broad who wanted $10k to walk red carpets and such. Hellooo! it's your JOB to promote the movie. You got paid. We need to do better in Hollywood folks. She is lucky that she won.

    What the HAIL Mo? It's that attitude right there is the reason why you don't have ANYTHING else in the works right now except your hollering show. It wouldn't have killed you to ACT humble, but oh yeah...you weren't really "acting" in Precious...it was your standup routine on crack...Gimme a break.

    Congrats on the win, but you need to work on being humble because it seems like everyone else in your cast (according to IMDB) has something else in the works with the exception of Mariah Carey. If you don't believe what I'm saying, then check out Cuba Gooding, Jr.'s interview where he talked about HIS Oscar win and his pride how it temporarily stalled his career.

  • VIBABY

    Sandra she did not win the Razzi for the same performance. If someone already pointed that out, my bad. :)

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    Mo didn't really thank anyone, but her husband and the academy. Her speech was good. I don't think Sandra's movie was a tear jerker or even good enough to be nominated. But that's alright. If Halle can win for a far worse performance in Monster's Ball then Sandra can get one for an average movie too.

  • ms.truth

    BLEH!! the Oscars are soooo overrated. The same movies are nominated for every category. the entire show is staged...and I'm sure no one is going to be able to deal with Mo'Nique now that she's won an Oscar. heffa is gone be on her high horse with those donkey legs.

    AT THE END OF THE DAY "MONIQUE" WON -POINT BLANK

    SHE DID THE DAMN THING IN THE MOVIE-IT WASN'T SO MUCH OF THE PERSON SHE PORTRAYED IN THE MOVIE IT WAS HOW WELL SHE DID IT...AND THAT'S WHAT WON HER THE OSCAR-AS IT SHOULD HAVE

    IT'S IN HISTORY AND FOREVER WILL BE AND NOBODY CAN CHANGE THAT-AGAIN CONGRATS MONIQUE!

  • MsConsciousOne

    I only remember four things regarding Monique last night, here goes.....
    1. She deserved to win
    2. Her humbleness
    2. Her gratitude
    3. One of the best quotes: "...you have to forgo what's popular and do what's right."

    AMEN!

    Congrats and much love to Monique. As for Sam Jackson, it's none of Monique's business what Sam thinks:)

  • SweetP1984

    Congrats Mo!

  • Shauny

    Last time I checked 4+1= 5 :shrug:

    I don't think Mo meant Black when she said political, I think she meant the "popular choice" ie. Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Brad Pitt etc. Also I was told the Hattie tribute was for her being the 1st black woman to win an Oscar.

    Did she thank anyone from the movie besides Gabby? I think I remember her saying something about Tyler and Oprah but no cast or nothing. She could've been mervous though. Maybe it was an oversight. She thanked him personally at the Golden Globes.

    I did have to rewind to see Samuel L Jackson's side eye. If found it odd that they kept that in there since I'm sure they were on delay. Anyway forget Samuel L. He's

    Congratulations to Mo. She deserved the award because she acted her azz off. I NEVER saw her as MoNique in that movie. There were a lot of people on Twitter saying that WE love to hate on each other and low and behold we found reasons to go in on MoNique not even minutes after she won. We have to find something negative in a positive.

  • http://oneperfectassistant.com ggouch

    I have watched Hurt Locker over and over again..and I jsut don't get it. There was no character that I could relate to or feel empathy for. What was the hype of this movie? Can some one please explain. Unless you are military or like to see things blow up...I just dont get it.

  • cheeks8683

    I was shocked to hear this morning on the radio that some people where upset at the role that Monique choose to do and it protrays black women in a bad light...WTH??? Really? I mean it was originally a novel based on issues that real people have to deal with. What was she not suppost to take the role and allow someone else to win the oscar? Plus there are countless people out there whom have lived this life and I heard alot more people appriciated the realness of it. I say if a person can play a role so well that you forget who they really are let them have an oscar. Same goes to Denzel when he won for training day...he made his character believable and that is what won him the award. Also I was touched to see that the writer for best adapted screen play went to precious. The guy's speech was so humble and he appeared truly shocked :)

  • http://twitter.com/sherita78 mizzdallas

  • Carmez79

    Sandra bullock won a razzie for her role in what about steve(which was terrible). happy for monique.

  • Mspeng

    Firstly, I'm sure Lee Daniels is waaay out the closet. He's not downlow. I read on Wikipedia he's raising his nephew or niece or something with his male partner so let's not call him a deceiver, he's not lying to any women.

    Secondly, I don't like Mo'Nique's attitude, nor did I like that angry sounding speech she made. But I'll be a liar if I said she didn't deserve the Oscar because her performance in Precious was outstanding.

  • gypsyeyes

    She deserved her win. I don't see where some people think that she wasn't deserving of it. There is not a clause in anyone's contract to thank God first. She did NOT write an acceptance speech therefore there was no particular order in which she said things. Whether you feel like she should have won or not was not up to the people who watched the movie but up to the people who were part of the Academy.This role was no comparison to the Mo'nique that we have seen or see on a nightly basis.
    Congrats Mo'nique!!!!

She was in there running the show, she was only answering the questions of those reporters who gave her the time of day before she got on i.e. BET. Its funny to have comedic timing but sometimes she comes off as rude...just sayin...

    I didn't think her speech was angry at all, it was great. As for the order of when you thank God, y'all are cracking me up. It's about actions, not words at the end of the day.

    I loved the whole show, everyone seemed humble. Finally, we got to see "real" talent in the dancers, first time winners and less glitz and glamour. It was more about gratitude and substance, this was the best show ever.

    I loved Oprah's message to Gabby. I give the show and Monique two thumbs up:)

  • Jamillah

    It seems that the Academy loves to give Oscars to black actors/actresses who cater to black stereotypes.

    Hattie McDaniel - A Mammy.
    Denzel Washington - A dirty cop who thinks he's God.
    Whoopie Goldberg - A weirdo con artist who can communicate with the dead.
    Halle Berry - A poor, grieving black woman who needs a white man to save her.
    Jamie Foxx - A blind, drug-addicted musician.
    Monique - An angry, jealous and abusive welfare mom.

    It's getting to the point where we can predict whether a black person will win. Marlon Wayans will soon be playing Richard Pryor, who fit a lot of the stereotypes including loving white women. Marlon may soon see an Oscar in his future if his acting impresses the Academy.

    **********************************************

    true. although i haven't seen the other nominee's movies, the contenders seemed a bit weak. our comments are about the ATTITUDE not the merits of the performance.

    i don't know why black people always think a performance depicts the entire race. marisa tomei was nominated for being a washed up whore in one of her movies but white people were not outraged nor did they see this as a reflection on them. i don't see myself in this movie precious any more than i see myself in any coonery like soul plane. nor do i believe sexual abuse is more prevalent in the black community than the white community. it's a damn movie!

    Mo did a wonderful job in Precious and Im so glad that she won an Oscar. It was very much deserved.

    I think that when she mentioned politics, she was talking about maybe the politics that went into picking a winner. Maybe she thought that she wouldn't win because of who she was...lets not forget about the Eddie Murphy Oscar debacle.

    Blk women are always going to have to deal with being talked about for coming off as having a bad attitude. It's one of those stereotypes that wont go away. Mo didn't curse anyone out and I didn't see one neck roll but you wouldn't be able to tell by reading some folks comments.

    She thanked Lee Daniels at the Globes and people were saying she was being problematic for not mentioning Harpo and Madea, now that she thanks them, she's still problematic...

    P.S. I love her acceptance speeches...

    Monique can charge more for her services, but write her

    own ticket? I don't know about that. What has Halle done

    that was earth shattering since she won the Oscar? The

    Oscar makes for a larger paycheck for an actor (which is

    great), but it doesn't necessarily guarantee superb roles.

    What has Denzel done since he got his Oscar? Or even Jamie

    Foxx?

    @cheeks8683

    I understand because if you look at the history of black people winning Oscars, they win for degrading characters...

    Halle Berry (down and out) - Denzel Washington (killer/criminal) - Jamie Foxx (addict) - Monique (welfare abusive mom) - Whoopi Goldberg (ecsentric crazy lady/soothsayer/criminal lol)

    Can we get an Oscar for a good positive role just once? I would be ecstatic!

    are white stereotypes

    Nicholas Cage - drug addict/drunk

    BUT, I think these Oscar wins are about showing range. For instance, "Training Day" was a breakout role for Denzel b/c he always played the good guy. Jamie and Monique were two comedians who showed range with thier acting in serious roles. JMO

    Sorry but Mo mentioned her entire cast, does that not include a director? People don't need individual shout outs during HER speech. It's so childish.

    @ lovely Book of Eli came out in Jan so it is not eligible until next year's oscars...I agree Denzel werked that movie. After I saw it, I had a Sixth Sense moment. As in I wanted to watch it again immediately to see what I missed lol... And on this whole subject on the roles that blacks win oscars for, its the same across the board. Addicts, bad guys, murders, abusers, etc....are hard roles to play thus is the reason they are nominated. I mean rarely someone ones an award for just being good all the way thru a movie...Having some depth adds character making the role more interesting. When Julia Roberts won for Erin Brockovich she played a strong willed bi**h who through her hard work helped people. Meryl Streep abandoned her son in Kramer vs. Kramer and won for that...Villen's win oscars, oh well...If you can make your role believable u deserve to win...

    Clarification Sandra. Sandra Bullock won a razzie for her performance in 'All About Steve' which was released this year. Not for 'The Blind Side'. I think you need a fact checker! :)

    Also, director Kathryn Bigelow and James Cameron were married all of two months before their marriage was annulled. Leave it to the media to try to run some rivalry game on the both of them. Both of them are still close and James supported The Hurt Locker and championed the film.

    I am happy for Mo'Nique and her win. She deserved it. I hope she continues to choose roles that show her skill. Winning an Oscar can be a bad thing if you don't select appropriate roles.

    Ask Cuba and Halle.

  • MsConsciousOne

    I thought that Halle was awesome in Monster's Ball. No offense, but the way Black men treat Black women in videos is way worse than anything Hollywood could ever do. I'm just sayin'. I don't get how a hard working sister is getting hated on for performing her butt off and delivering an awesome performance and the focus is how she thanked folks. Really?

    Avatar had great graphis...that's about it! A Cowboys vs Natives storyline should not win an Oscar for best film, even if for once the Natives won.

    I was so glad when Hurt Locker won....

    Also Monique deserved to win. When she said I think the academy awards for not being about politics...She was talking about how the oscars usually pick the wellknown people or movie.ex.George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock.

    That's why when Hurt Locker won, I was happy. The academy didn't use politics, If they did, I'm sure Avator would have won.

    At the end of the day who really cares why Sam gave the side eye or what he thinks? I mean I like him too but she doesn't need his validation

    Monique was talking about the politics of kissing butt to win the award. People aren't happy no matter what you do geez.

    Congrats to Mo'Nique. I don't get all the hate towards her speech. I found it to be very eloquent and passionate. She also seemed very humble. And, as stated before, she thanked her whole "Precious" family, I'm guessing that would include Lee Daniels. I thought she deserved it cause she did a GREAT job in "Precious."
