Monique, you were awesome and well poised during your acceptance speech at the Oscars. I saw you on Oprah for the after Oscar party and I loved your humble attitude displayed towards Oprah when she asked you the question about you “knowing” you were going to win. I laughed at your serious, humoring, yet humbling response to Oprah- it was cute. Much more continued success Monique.

Vanessa Said on

When they said your name I screamed and my poor husband thought I was crying but I was so happy for you and everyone who work on the film. I must say I did cry because it felt so good to see some kind of recognition for you as an actress. Much love and peace be with you and your family.

mabel muchira (ZIMBABWE) Said on

congratulations Monique iam so happy for you ,you made us proud .
As an african i felt like i was in usa . Keep it going girl.

C. Sajelle Said on

Congratulations on your much deserved Oscar win! I so support the voicing of the unheard especially as skillfully expressed in this very important work. You all did an outstanding job at communicating the intricacies of the lives of our sisters and brothers from other mothers. As a professional actress located in the Baltimore/DC area, I watched the depth of your gripping performance and allowed myself to put away the analysis of the process of acting and just experience the story as you totally transformed yourself into Mary Jones. You disappeared which is a true testiment of your talent! And I must mention your grace and poise throughout your acceptance of all the acknowledgements and awards this season. You certainly make us proud. May God continue His blessing upon your life.
In Peace with Love,
C. Sajelle
