Mo’Nique Will Announce the Oscar Nominations

Mo'Nique played infamously hard-to-get in the awards season run-up to her Oscar win last year, but apparently the Precious star has become more kudos-friendly in the months since: She's agreed to announce the Oscar nominations on the morning of January 25 alongside AMPAS president Tom Sherak. So many questions! Will we get Fun Mo'Nique or Gravely Serious Mo'Nique? Will her presence revive those op-eds about the racially homogeneous nominees this year? And, as always, which names will Tom Sherak mispronounce or emphasize weirdly? [Deadline]
