NOMINATED: Mary J. Blige

MARY J. Blige has been nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in Mudbound.

The singer was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in the Dee Rees-directed Netflix film about two families -- one black and one white -- struggling to survive during the post-War, Jim Crow era in rural Mississippi. Blige was also nominated for Best Original Song for “Mighty River,” which she wrote and sang for the film.
