Mo'nique Earns Supporting-Actress Prize at Globes

Tuesday, 19 Jan 2010 05:51 PM

Mo'Nique has won the supporting-actress Golden Globe for her role as a loathsome, abusive welfare mother in the Harlem drama "Precious."

The prize Sunday marks a dramatic turning point for Mo'Nique, who was mainly known for lowbrow comedy but startled audiences with her ferocious performance in "Precious: Based on the Novel `Push' By Sapphire."

The Globe win could boost Mo'Nique's prospects at the Oscars, whose nominations come out Feb. 2.

"Precious" also was up for best drama, along with the sci-fi blockbuster "Avatar," the recession tale "Up in the Air" and the war stories "The Hurt Locker" and "Inglourious Basterds."

Rain doused the pre-show, stars in their finery crowding under umbrellas as storms rolled in.
