Mo'Nique continued her domination of the Best Supporting Actress category by winning the Academy Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for her performance in Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire.
Mo'Nique had already won similar acclaim at the Golden Globes, the BAFTAs, and the SAG Awards, among others.
On the Red Carpet outside the ceremony, Mo'Nique said that she was "honored to be nominated," adding that she was also "honored to be cast in Soul Plane."
Mo'Nique was recently involved in a minor controversy when the New York Daily News reported that she and Barbara Walters had clashed during the interview which aired on Walters' special earlier this evening.
"Barbara is telling friends that Mo'Nique was one of her most challenging subjects ever," an insider told the News. "If Barbara needed one more reason to quit the Oscar specials, Mo'Nique gave it to her."
The source also claimed that Mo'Nique refused to be interviewed in her house, was "disrespectful and dismissive", and had "very specific hair and makeup demands".
Walters denied any conflict, saying, "There was nothing about her that was rude. It's a wonderful, funny interview. She couldn't have been more open. If you're not happy, you don't answer those questions."
