Awards season is in full swing and it seems like the “Precious” Four–Mariah Carey, Gabourey Sidibe, Mo’Nique and Paula Patton (above, surrounding their director, Lee Daniels) are everywhere. Nevermind the fact that Mo’Nique is taking home statue after statue after statue for her role. Here, we’ve gathered together photos of the “Precious” Four, from as far back as Sundance Film Festival in early 2009 (back when the movie was still called “Push”) which we’ll keep adding to through early March, when the 82nd annual Academy Awards airs. Check out our gallery of the four lovely ladies we call the “Precious” Four.
