Earlier this year, Mo’Nique stirred things up when talks of being black-balled by Hollywood started. Things centered around her relationship with director Lee Daniels and the lack of opportunities we’ve seen her have after winning an Oscar in 2010. The 2015 Emmy nominations were just announced which Mo’Nique landed a nomination for outstanding supporting actress in a limited series. Her role in HBO’s Bessie alongside Queen Latifah, and Mike Epps places her back in award talks. It’s safe to say that some things can’t be denied. We’ll find out if she takes it home when The Emmys airs on Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
Other comedy-related nominations include.
Anthony Anderson, Black-ish
Louis C.K., Louie
Keegan-Michael Key, Key & Peele
