In 2009, Mo’Nique won an Oscar for her supporting role in Precious.

Then her career inexplicably stalled.

According to the actress/comedian, she was systematically blackballed by Black film producers and directors because she didn't thank Precious director Lee Daniels and the studio in her acceptance speech.

For his part, Daniels has said Mo'Nique is difficult to work with.

One Black producer who will work with Mo'Nique is 50 Cent, who recently cast her in Power.

Fif, who has his own issues with Lee Daniels, took to Instagram to encourage others to give Mo'Nique work and to promote Power.
