Mo'Nique Has The HOTTEST Oscar Buzz For Her Role In Precious!

The last couple of days we have noticed that there is quite a lot of Oscar buzz, and this week, it seems that the buzz in the Hollywood industry has gotten a little louder. We can say for certain that our Hollywood insiders have started to take notice of Lee Daniels' new film titled Precious: Based on Push a Novel by Sapphire as it has been winning over audiences since it debuted at the Sundance Film Festival last January. The drama featured a strange cast of some experienced and some inexperienced actors including Mo'Nique, Lenny Kravitz and Mariah Carey as they stunned the Sundance faithful during its world premiere.

Anyway, since the film premiered in January, Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry got behind the film as Producers to support the film, and most recently things have really started to spin out of control for the film, as we heard tonight that the comedian Mo’Nique is a shoo-in for an Oscar nod, which would make her the first ever African American female comedian in over a decade since Whoopi Goldberg to be nominated for an Oscar!

Sure. this could change between now and December when the Academy casts their votes, but as of this writing Mo'Nique is in the lead for Best Supporting Actress.

The film Precious: Based on Push a Novel by Sapphire opens in select theaters November 6th.
