Mo’Nique Wins The Globe; Mariah Shows Her Globes

Published by Clay Cane on Monday, January 18, 2010 at 12:00 am.

monique Precious won only one award last night at the 67th Annual Golden Globes, but Mo’Nique stole the show with her acceptance speech for best supporting actress. It was no shocker, Mo’Nique beat out some heavy-hitters for her stunning performance as Mary Jones, an abusive mother. A teary Mo’Nique graciously accepted the Golden Globe thanking her husband and the director of Precious, Lee Daniels. She also added for those who have been abused: “It’s now time to tell and it’s OK.”

When Drew Barrymore won for best actress in a miniseries or TV movie, she was so moved by Mo’Nique she said, “You said everything that so many people feel.  You are the most eloquent, beautiful human being.”

Congratulations Mo’Nique!  This makes her a shoe-in for the Oscar!

Backstage, Mo’Nique said, “I don’t know — to say me winning has a great importance on what the message is.  I think the message is far more important than anything…if that one life was changed, we won. So that message is more important than anything.”

The night continued with a cancer-stricken Michael C. Hall winning for his role in Showtime’s Dexter, Sandra Bullock winning for best actress in The Blind Side and James Cameron snagged best director and best film for Avatar.  Also, the legendary Martin Scorsese was honored by Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio with the Cecil B. Demille award.  Meryl Streep set a record for winning the most Golden Globes of any actor with her seventh win for Julie & Julia.

The night was also filled with mentions of relief efforts for Haiti.

Presenters included Samuel L. Jackson, Mike Tyson and a beautiful Halle Berry.  But, probably one of the most talked about moments of the night was Mariah’s bosom — she had her own set of Globes.  Gotta love Mimi! mariah

Scared To Tell Said on


I thank you for you ability to make me laugh, cry, scream, and think. I am a victim of molestation, whose first cousin thought it was okay touch me. Although I couldn’t watch the whole, the parts I saw really hit home for me. I had read the book years ago and thought wow this needs to be a movie. Thank God Lee Daniels thought so too. I now believe it’s okay to tell, however I pray my family won’t turn their backs on me….God Bless and much continued success!

MoNique you deserve that award,, I never seen an actress put so much heart and soul into a movie. I know that people were touch by that movie. I was touch by it and it gave me the strength to speak to a friend about her behavior. I helped her daughter, get some help for the daily verbal abuse she suffers from her mother. It made me realize that when a person see abuse and say it’s not my problem, I have nothing to do with that situation, I was wrong, It is my responsibility and as well as anyone who witnes abuse to report it.

Thank you MoNique for that one night that I watch your show when you had the cast from Precious on it and I saw just how much it took out of ou to play a roll like that. You deserve the Golden Glove and even that OSCAR. May God continue to bless you with much more success.

Ericka Said on

Congrats on your Golden Globe win. U deserve it! I work in the field of child protection and the character you played is a sad but true reality for many children. I appreciate that you took the role serious and portrayed what abuse is and the lasting effects that it has.Thanks for being a beacon and a light for child abuse, and thanks for placing abuse at not just the office but in homes and churhces where the true healing of abuse begins. May God continue to bless you and your efforts.
