justintGabourey Sidibe has been all over the news after her Oscar nod for lead actress in Precious, she is only eighth Black woman to be nominated in this category. Gabby is probably battling off the boys now on who she will take to the Oscars, but she has Justin Timberlake in mind — or maybe Anthony Mackie. According to

“I want to make Justin Timberlake and (“The Hurt Locker” actor) Anthony Mackie fight it out for the honor of being my date,” Sidibe told the Canadian entertainment TV show “eTalk” this week. “I’m just going to throw them in the ring and make them do it!”

But if Sidibe had to narrow it down to one guy, her heart is set on Timberlake. At one point during the interview, Sidibe turns toward the camera and makes her direct appeal. “Justin,” she says, “if you’re not doing anything on that night, maybe you could be my date or something. It’s fine. No pressure!”

Gabby should be careful with Justin — the last time JT hung out with a sistah in public her bosom popped out and she was thrown under the sexist bus!  Gabby might want to go for Anthony Mackie — I’m just sayin’!
