    I’m so proud of Mo’s speech. So eloquent, without all the “I’m so freaking thankful for being accepted in your world. Thank you for loving my skin and giving me a chance to prove myself amongst you beautiful people” type of speech. Congratulations.

    Did anyone see Samuel L.Jackson’s face when this first aired after her speech? It was kind of wierd like he didn’t take it seriously…Maybe it was just me…but she really did good. I can’t imagine having to go to a dark place like that.

    DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY BLACKS HAVE AN OSCAR? HOW MANY WOMEN?

    DONT COME AND COMMENT ACTING LIKE A BUNCH OF BLACK PEOPLE OR FEMALES HAVE WON AN OSCAR.

    ANGELA BASSET DOESNT HAVE ONE
    REGINA KING DOESNT HAVE ONE

    N OH SO MANY.

    ITS STILL HISTORY.

    @SEAN2010

    MAYBE THEY DONT DESERVE IT COMPARED TO THE COMPETITION THAT YEAR? NOW HOW MANY WERE NOMINATED FUCKTARD?? YEA, EXACTLY… WHAT ABOUT OTHER MINORITIES?? YEA EXACTLY… SO DONT MAKE BLACKS LIKE THEY ARE THE “SPECIAL” MINORITY THAT HAS TO DESERVE IT JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE “BLACK”. STUPID ASS. MERYL STREEP HAS BEEN NOMINATED 16X BUT HAS WON 2. MAYBE PEEPS ARE “DISCRIMINATORY” TO STREEP TOO? F*** OFF.

    Well I consider this history, not because it’s a black woman, but because it’s Mo’Nique. So congratulations to her, she absolutely deserved it! 😀

    im glad monique won it.

    i wonder why avatar didnt win best picture? i loved it!

  13. ANONYMOUS March 8, 2010

    @E11

    AVATAR DIDNT WIN CAUSE THE SCRIPT WAS MEDIOCRE AND ACTING QUITE AVERAGE. THERE REALLY WASNT A STORY. THE SPECIAL EFFECTS MADE THE FILM. THAT IN ITSELF IS NOT ENOUGH TO JUSTIFY A BEST PIC WIN. GEORGE LUCAS “MADE” AVATAR NOT JAMES CAMERON. HIS COMPANY ILM DID ALL THE SPECIAL EFFECTS AND PROLLY WON MOST OF THE TECHNICAL OSCARS FOR AVATAR. IM GLAD THAT TEMPERAMENTAL JACKASS CAMERON DIDNT WIN BEST DIRECTOR OR BEST PIC. HE WOULD BE MORE OF A TEMPERAMENTAL JACKASS IF HE DID. WITHOUT THE SCI FI EFFECTS, AVATAR WOULD BE AN AVERAGE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC DOCUMENTARY INTO THE AMAZON JUNGLE. JUST SAYIN.

    Congrats to Monique, how classy of Monique to remember Hattie M, the very first black woman to win for supporitng actress. We have to remember that during Hattie time, black women were reduced to playing maids, and other stereotypical parts. And as talented as she was, Hattie couldn’t get any work in Hollywood, and lived her life as a maid. But, the sad thing about Hattie’s win was that she wasn’t allowed to be in the actual room where the Oscars were being tapped, she had to sit in another room, away from white Holllywood, that is why we only see her speech. To know where we come from as a people, is a must, Hattie and those of her black peers are the true trailblazers.

    Off Topic: Years ago a black man wrote many of the musical scores for Hollywood movies, yet never received credit for it, because of his skin, odd to think that Quincy Jones wrote the score for the movie, “In the Heat of The Night”, co-starring sydney Poitier, many believe he was the first black to compose music for movies, but he wasn’t that honored went to the unknown black man that achieve that goal. We need to teach our children our real history, and not just that we came from atheletes and rappers and singers. We are more, and I take offense to people that say that we should acknowledge other minorities not just our own. If we don’t than who will? If it wasn’t for the sacrifices that blacks made in this country, there would be no equal rights for latinos, asians, native americans, middle easterners, etc. We were right there helping other minorities achieve rights and their successes have been on the backs of blacks, yet not one time, are we acknowledge and given a thank you, for the most part others look down on us, like we are less than, when we paved the way. That is to the poster who bought up race.

    Not only that she’s a TV host, but a COMEDIAN.
