LOS ANGELES – Academy Award winner Mo’Nique is pitching in to help announce nominees for the upcoming Oscars.
Mo’Nique will join Tom Sherak, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, at the nominations announcement on Jan. 25.
A year ago, Mo’Nique received her first-ever Oscar nomination and went on to win the supporting-actress prize for her role as a loathsome welfare mother in “Precious.”
The 83rd Oscar ceremony is set for Feb. 27.
