“Precious” debuted this weekend at the movies and did $1.8 million. It didn’t make the top three but that is pretty damn good for a movie that was only released in 18 theaters around the US. Gabourey Sidibe made an appearance on the TODAY Show and tells how she even got the roll.

Pop it for Gabby’s Interview

Precious will be released nationwide November 20th.

If you haven’t seen the trailer take a peek…

How many of you think that this movie will be on the list for Oscar nominations???

    she’s ver articulate. Breaks the stereotype


    Most black actresses are very articulate. Halle, Gabby, Nia, Kerri, Vanessa, Angela Basset, Paula Patten, etc……….Don’t get them confused with hip hop community.

    I’m sure she’ll lose the weight when she’s good and ready. And it’s always for health reasons of course. At least she has a cute face.

  • Peptostreptococcus

    People are mad that her weight is being talked about…Well, she’s like the fat elephant in the room: Can’t be missed or avoided!!! It’s not like she hides it well!! It’s distracting!

  • question

    Can someone explain why really obese blacks have really dark necks? I don’t care what complextion, their necks look really dirty & black.

    You people saying she is “cute” or beautiful live on another planet. The whole point of the story is that she’s not cute at all!!!!! You know I hate to go there on this girl, so I’ll try and make this constructive. Saw the film. She is talented (but no she does not deserve an Oscar- get real) however if she wants to continue as an actress who will be considered for leading roles she should try and lose weight. Also it is healthier that way. She can hire a trainer and everything now its up to her.
    Also Monique deserves an Oscar for sure. Mariah is my girl but she can’t act worth a darn.
