Pundits questioned Mo'Nique's decision to let her performance in "Precious" speak for itself and do no campaigning for awards. But she took home the best supporting actress Oscar, as well as most other major prizes. Now the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has honored her again. It announced today that Mo'Nique is one of 20 actors (and 135 artists in toto) to receive an invitation to join the Academy in 2010. It's heartening to see that sometimes, talent will out!
