Mo’Nique Does It Again, SAG Outstanding Supporting Role
Nearly a week after taking home both a Critics Choice Award and Golden Globe, BET host/actress/comedian Mo’Nique has won a Screen Actors Guild Award.
Picking up a statuette for her role as Mary Jones in Precious, Mo’Nique won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.
Accepting the award Saturday, January 23, Mo’Nique spoke of the role and a special prayer that resulted when the film was complete.
“We left Mary Jones on the floor. When [director] Lee Daniels said that was a wrap, it was,” said Mo’Nique. “What I did take away, from my prayer to the universe, was to never allow me to judge. You never know.”
