Congratulations are in order for Mariah Carey who made her way to Capri, Italy this week to attend the 14th annual Capri-Hollywood International Film Festival in order to collect a Best Supporting Actress award for her work in the film Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire. News of this honor was reported by Variety earlier this month but the actual ceremony only took place in Capri, Italy last night. Here are a few photos of Mimi, decked out in her best finery, at the Capri-Hollywood International Film Festival last night:
Mariah Carey [received] the 14th annual Capri-Hollywood Film Festival’s award for this year’s Best Supporting Actress for her performance in “Precious.” The film will also have its Italian premiere at the fest, which runs Dec. 27- Jan. 2 with its awards presented on Dec. 28. Past recipients of the Supporting Actor nod include Dennis Hopper (“Elegy”), Amy Ryan (“Gone Baby Gone”), Rinko Kikuci (“Babel”) and Matt Dillon (“Crash”). The Grammy-award winner also has an extensive acting career, which includes 1999′s “The Bachelor,” “Glitter” and “WiseGirls.”
Yay!! At last, with this award, all painful memories of her failure with Glitter can be completely washed away. I was very impressed with Mimi‘s performance in Precious even tho it was very short. I’m glad to see the film get any recognition cuz it truly is a great movie. I should point out that the dude manhandling Mariah Carey in the last two photos is not an overzealous security guard but is, in fact, her husband Nick Cannon. Were it not for him, she would’ve had to pay someone to hold her umbrella for her so it’s a good thing he came along to the film fest. Congrats on this award, again, MC … it was well-earned.
