Cinematical predicts Oscar nods for 'Precious'

< >


This is the new movie poster for "Precious," a Lee Daniels film starring Mo'Nique, Gabourey Sidibe and Mariah Carey. The film will enjoy a premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this month after walking away with several awards (including the double whammy of Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award) at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

Cinematical's Erik Davis says: I could easily see an Oscar nod or two shelled out for this film -- which follows an overweight, pregnant, illiterate teen from Harlem who enrolls in an alternative school with plans to give herself and her child a better life. For one, Mo'Nique gives one of the coldest, harshest performances I've ever seen on screen, and now that both Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry (talk about another double whammy) have lent their names and support to Precious, that, along with a slew of awesome buzz, should help it do well when it finally hits theaters later this year on November 6th.
