BACON WRAPPED LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD – MO’NIQUE

Posted in bacon wrapped icon, fried chicken, Mo'Nique on March 8, 2010 by browndowncrown

The Oscars were important and all but everyone knows its all for white people movies. Every now and then some ladies and brown people sneak their way in as winners (with wins for Mo’Nique and Kathryn Bigelow this year) but the REAL awards are here at BDC Headquarters. As we approach our one year anniversary as a blog we are are announcing — THE BACON WRAPPED LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD!! Really, there was no one more deserving of this PRESTIGIOUS honor than MO’NIQUE.

Her role in Precious is phenomenal. She is the highest paid entertainer on the BET network for her late night talk show. She has been a longtime supporter of fatties through her comedy specials and books (Never Trust a Skinny Cook and Skinny Women Are Evil: Notes of a Big Girl in a Small Minded World).
And of course her 6 year stint on The Parkers! Her brutal honesty and adoration of the big girl makes her one of the most beautiful people in Hollywood right now. Honestly, we have so much to say about Mo’Nique and her funny moments and breakthrough achievements that it is almost impossible to list them all!

The icing on the cake is her the way she honored actress Hattie McDaniel – the first African American Actress to win a best supporting actress- at the Oscars this year. Not only by thanking her in her speech but, as she stated after her win:
The reason why I have on this royal blue dress is because it’s the color
that Hattie McDaniel wore in 1940 when she accepted her Oscar. The
reason why I have this gardenia in my hair, it is the flower that Hattie
McDaniel wore when she accepted her Oscar. So for you, Miss Hattie
McDaniel, I feel you all over me”

I know this is not shocking news to BDC readers but in the past 73 years only FOUR black ladies have won best supporting actress?!? I guess there were a few years in there where Brown people were busy fighting for EQUAL RIGHTS but come on!!

Check out the beautiful Hattie McDaniel’s acceptance speech back in 1940:

Check out Mo’Nique honoring Hattie McDaniel and harassing a reporter for asking a dumb ass question:

DEAR MO’NIQUE – BDC IS GOING TO SEE YOU ON APRIL 3RD IN OAKLAND — THIS IS AN OPEN INVITE TO EAT SOME FRIED CHICKEN AT POPEYES WITH US AFTER YOUR SHOW. WE’LL PAY! LOVE, BDC

The Gossip recently performed live on the Jools Holland show (guess its some cool show in Europe?) and it made us love them SO much more. And this is why:

1.) they are now performing with bassist Chris Sutton who has been in so many bands we can’t list them all but we like him best in C.O.C.O. and Dub Narcotic Sound System.
2.) Hannah’s pompadour is so big it reaches the sky
3.) Beth’s first outfit in the clip below is hella gay rainbow peacock meets Colonel Sanders and if thats not punk high fashion I don’t know what is. BDC likes anything that reminds us of fried chicken.
4.) their music inspires us to truffle shuffles all the way to Popeyes!

Dear Gossip — BrownDownCrown can’t wait for you to come back to San Francisco in Rocktober… won’t you please let us buy you some Chubby Hubby and do an interview for BDCTV?? love, BrownDownCrown
