In the last couple of week Mo'Nique has got a little "backlash" why?
Because she isn't campaigning, her decision not to show up at the NYFCC ceremony, her reason was something with her family to do, so it will probably not hurt her chances. But also that she asked former Oscar nominees what and Oscar does financially.
Well I think all these things are a campaign in it's own way, remember George C. Scott. He said that he didn't want the award, which led to more publicity and after all an Oscar, maybe he actually wanted the Oscar?
