It’s hard to believe but after five years since her Oscar win as Best Supporting Actress for ‘Precious,’ Mo’ Nique has been less visible that ever before. Once a popular stand up comedian and actress who was in several movies before she won an Oscar and hosted a BET talk show, Mo’ Nique has had a few credits since. She says, she was blackballed. In a recent interview with ‘The Hollywood Reporter to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Hattie McDaniels’ Best Supporting Actress win for ‘Gone With The Wind,’ the first Oscar ever given to an African-American, Mo’Nique admits she and her Boo/ husband/manager Sidney Hicks may be partially responsible.
