The critically-acclaimed and much-talked-about movie Precious finally premiered in the United States Sunday night, November 1 at The Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, California. In attendance were the film’s stars Gabourey Sidibe (who plays the title character Clareece ‘Precious’ Jones), singer/actress Mariah Carey, Mo’Nique and Paula Patton as well as other celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry.

Mariah Carey looks great in her full-length black gown! No signs of stress at all from her flailing music career – evidenced by disappointing sales for her most recent singles off her oft-delayed new album Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, which was finally released September 29. (In hopes of boosting sales, there are plans for a remixed version of the album to be released soon.)
Oprah Winfrey looks to once again be on the bad side of one of her many many weight swings, though she does look quite cheerful with her “Oprah’s Man Club Choice Of A Lifetime” Tyler Perry.
Mo’Nique’s appearance may come as a surprise to some after she reportedly skipped out on previous Precious promotional events including the Canadian Premiere at the Toronto Film Festival because she wanted lots of money to appear.
