‘Precious’ Generating Oscar Buzz

- By Bossip Staff

The Hollyweird elite are gossipin’ that the new movie “Precious” will likely be up for an Oscar. Set in Harlem in 1987, the movie chronicles Precious’s struggle to overcome the desperation of her circumstances, including the emotional and physical abuse she suffers at the hands of her mother (Mo’Nique). Go under the hood for the trailer and a NY Times review.

    It would be nice for the actor’s to be nominated even better to win but remember we heard this same talk about the color purple amongst others. I won’t believe it until I see it.

  • GET REAL

    I’ve started wondering what happened to those few really obese girls that were over looked in school. Even though they were big, they were really invisiable. I often wondered what the stuggled with.

  • JUDY

    I will definitely be supporting Precious and Mo’Nique tonight.

    @WTF- Oh okay thank you.

  • just me

    Saw the film and thought it was good. Mo and Gabby give incredible performances! You’ll forget they are acting. Mo’Nique is EVIL all over. She has ZERO redeeming qualities. Gabby/Precious will embrace you with her ability to HOPE despite her horrific circumstances.
    I didn’t grow up with parents who told me I was “stupid and would never be anything” so this was hard for me to handle at some points.
    Overall, I think it’s a “go-see”! 🙂

    @WTF

    @Sydney, I plan on seeing it to when it comes to the midwest. On a side note, Sydney, you remind me of one of those genteel 1800’s women, always proper, wearing lace gloves….not a bad thing.

    “On a side note, Sydney, you remind me of one of those genteel 1800’s women, always proper, wearing lace gloves….not a bad thing.”

    LOL! I’ll take that as a compliment — I think the ladies in the 19th century carried themselves very well, indeed, white gloves and all. 🙂

  • YorkieLover

    Can’t wait to see it! It won’t be in my town till next week,but I’ll be first in line!

    I bet not as many black folks will go see this as they did Madea Goes to Jail or Madea Family Reunion or some bs like that. Black people hate to see or hear the truth of our community.

  • Sanjor

    @Sydney, it is a compliment, lol.

  • lEAVE-ME-BEE

    ……… YUP…. IF YOUNG PPL FIND THIS PREVIEW FUNNY OR THOSE THAT HAVE SEEN THE FILM; IT IS NOT FUNNY!!!!! THE FILM IS REAL!!!!!!!! IT’S ABOUT A YOUNG WOMAN LIKE MANY OTHER PPL OUT THERE WHO IS DISSATISFIED WITH HER LIFE, HER LOOKS AND HER ABUSIVE HOME SITUATION!!!!!! MENTALLY, SHE IS LOST!!!! PREGNANT NO KIDS, NO FUTURE TO LOOK FORWARD TO, AND NO ONE TO TALK TO THAT WILL UNDERSTAND HER; UNTIL SHE GETS AROUND POSITIVE PPL WHO SHOWS INTEREST IN HER SITUATION AND TRIES TO SHOW HER POSITIVE TRAITS SHE HAS, AND CAN BUILD ON, INCLUDING HAVING 2 CHILDREN!!!!! THIS IS A SERIOUS EVERYDAY ISSUE WITH NOT JUST YOUNG PPL, BUT ADULTS AS WELL…. LOOKS VERY INSPIRATIONAL I WANA SEE IT!!! 🙂

    I never seen a girl that ugly in my live O MY GOD!!!!

  • snake

    O by the way tell her to take off the custom,october 31 just pass!

  • ChellBellz

    I wish people would stop talking about that girl. Reality is there are a ton of overweight people who are good people regardless of how they look.

    The book was wonderful, and it was a true story. Very unfortunate what the woman in real life had to go through.

  • tonia t

    what make her so ugly? there’s nothing wrong with her. she’s a beautiful young lady inside and out. wud she b ugly if she was light skinned. i wish that ppl wud look at themselves b4 judging others. b/c i bet the ones that have sumthing to say about this young lady look like the sh*t on the bottom of my shoe…

  • BOSSIP IS WHACK!

    MONIQUE BETTER GET A NOD

  • halle berry fan

  • chzz

    Incredible.
    There are black women cashing welfare checks.Many more dealing (or not)with morbid obesity and all its associated chronic diseases.Some trying in every way to look white and lighten up.
    Still,people come on here to disrespect this young,beautiful sister,Gabourey who’s making a $erious move forward in life.She is overweight but she can lose the weight.Some of you will never lose your ignorance.
