Reality show host and funny lady Mo'Nique is truly one of the queens of comedy—and also an amazing dramatic actress. In 2009, Mo'Nique blew audiences away in the film Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire.
Mo'Nique plays Mary, the horribly abusive mother of the film's title character, Precious. Since the film premiered, Mo'Nique has taken home a Golden Globe® and a Screen Actor's Guild Award® for this gritty supporting performance.
