Mo’Nique Wins Oscar
Earlier this year, actress, comedienne and BET talk show host Mo’Nique joined an exclusive and history-making cohort: Black Academy Award-winning actresses. Her achievement carries on the legacy of former Oscar winners Hattie McDaniel, Whoopi Goldberg, Halle Berry and Jennifer Hudson. "I want to thank Miss Hattie McDaniel for enduring all that she had to, so that I would not have to," Mo'Nique said. "Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey; because you touched it, the whole world saw it."
