Dave Karger's latest Oscar Watch
column on Entertainment Weekly includes a plea to get Mariah nominated for an Oscar for her performance in Lee Daniels' "Precious
":Dear Santa: Get these long shots nominated!
On this Christmas day, my wish list includes Oscar nominations for the following five dark horse contenders. Are you listening, Santa? (Or at least, Academy members?)Best Supporting Actress: Mariah Carey, Precious
Okay, let the hateful comments begin, but I insist that Carey is a deserving contender for her brief turn as a dowdy social worker. Careyâ€™s costars Gabourey Sidibe and Moâ€™Nique are well on their way to scoring nominations. Considering their most memorable moments are with Carey, she should get in there too.
