Oprah To Ensure Mo An Oscar?

push_03Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry have signed on to be part of “Push,” which just won the big prizes at the Sundance Film Festival. With the duo’s combined marketing muscle brought to bear, expect “Push” to get maximum media attention when it is released later in the year. “Push” revolves around an overweight, illiterate African-American teen in Harlem who’s about to give birth to her second child when she is accepted into an alternative school. Mo’Nique (pictured) plays the teenager’s brutally tough mother. You heard it here first: expect Mo’Nique to figure in next year’s Oscar race.
