Not surprising even Mariah’s being recognized!
With the captivating performance she gave in her portrayal of a social worker despite her limited screen-time, the woman deserves an Oscar. Last night however she won an award at the Palm Springs Film Festival.
Good it wasn’t for her brilliant speech making. Craazy.
Also the NAACP awards nominated her, Mo’Nique and Paula Patton in the best supporting actress category.
Gabourey Sidebe was separately nominated in the best actress category competing with the likes of Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side(YES!), Sophie Okonedo in Skin (DOUBLE YES!), Taraji P. Henson in Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All by Myself and Anika Noni Rose for her vocal performance in the animated feature The Princess and the Frog(Très Good).
Precious earned a nomination for Best Picture along with The Blind Side, Invictus, Michael Jackson’s This is It and The Princess and the Frog. It also was nominated for Best Independent Picture, alongside Amreeka, American Violet, Endgame and Medicine for Melancholy. (Independent.. with Oprah!)
Lee Daniels was picked for best director while Geoffrey Fletcher was nominated for best screenplay in his adaptation of the novel to the big screen.
The NAACP awards will be given on the 26th of February, not solely for films but also for television, music and literature.
