At the 2010 Critics Choice Awards on VH1, Monique Imes (better known simply as Monique) took away an award for Best Supporting Actress for the Movie Precious. Watching the Awards, I was in shock as our beautiful sista was able to convince the critics of just how talented she really is. Critics can often be quite tough on movies and actors and for her to receive such an award and beat out many, is truly and honor. Despite the backlash of stereotyping African Americans that the movie Precious, I think Monique did a good job of transforming herself for the role as well as showing a sense of vulnerability for the twisted character. I think she deserved her award and hopefully this will open more doors and roles for her!!! Below is a picture of Monique with her husband and her award!!!!
