    “…and not this shitty festival award.” This made me laugh out loud…really it did.

    Nice speech. I like that she doesn’t appear to take herself to seriously. I felt she has a tougher role than Mo’Nique because her performance was more internal. She was excellent.

    I think I almost threw up during Mary Hart’s introductions. It is exactly this kind of fake fawning that gets me the most.

    And while it’s nice to see Gabourey in the spotlight it is a shame that her speech and sincerity is wasted on something so undeserving. No ammount of talent can justify or legitimize this worthless gathering.

    Two great performances by “Gabby” and Jeremy. They deserve the recognition.

    I was at the event and it was an impressive evening.

    I am looking forward to the 14th annual fest and awards next year.

    Who the hell is that woman who gave the introductions? Was she high off crack? She made me nervous as hell…

    Aaron, that’s Mary Hart from “Entertainment Tonight”.

    I met a strange lady, she made me nervous. She took me in and gave me breakfast…
