Mary J. Blige has officially made Oscars history!

Early Tuesday morning (Jan. 23), it was announced that the Grammy Award-winning singer has earned not one but two Oscar nods for her role in the film Mudbound. Mary is a hopeful winner for Best Supporting Actress in the Netflix tale about the deep South as well as Best Original Song for "Mighty River."

This feat is especially noteworthy considering MJB is the first person to be nominated in both a major acting category as well as a song category in the same year for the same film. 

In the wake of the historic news, there has been an outpouring of support for the iconic R&B songbird. Take a look at the best reactions below. 

 

Congrats MJB! Well deserved!
