The early indications are that this awards season is going to be a very busy one for Mo'Nique.
The comedian's terrifying portrayal of a mother on the brink in the Oprah Winfrey-produced, independent film Precious won best supporting actress from both the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and the Boston Society of Film Critics.
The critics also agreed on best film of the year: The Hurt Locker, a nerve-rattling drama about an elite army bomb squad operating in Iraq. They both named its director, Kathryn Bigelow, best director, beating among others, her ex-husband, Avatar director James Cameron.
