Moments after Mo’Nique won the Best Supporting Actress award at last night’s Critics’ Choice Awards for her Precious performance, Gold Derby’s Tom O’Neil asked about her not showing up at the Toronto Film Festival, the New York Film Festival and the New York Film Critics Awards to support the film. While giving O’Neil a look that would freeze the warts off a polar bear, Mo’Nique ducked the question (chickenshit) and let her husband-manager, Sidney Hicks, handle it instead.

Hicks gave O’Neil a “blah-blah-blah answer about her being a busy mom and talk-show host,” writes O’Neil.
