It was a historic night at the Oscars!
For the first time ever an Academy Award was given to a woman with an apostrophe in the middle of her name. Mo’Nique accepted the award for her work in Precious, and spoke movingly about her struggles with to overcome mid-name punctuation doubters everywhere. OK, only part of that is true.
Mo’Nique’s pre-Oscar showdown with Barbara Walters is also crackling on the news wires this morning. The ladies looked past a two-year feud (dating back to an episode of The View where sparks flew) and got down to important issues, like where Mo’Nique stands on marriage and leg shaving.
