Mary J. Blige Talks Golden Globe Nominations: ‘Iā€™m Just So Grateful’

Mary J. Blige has a lot to be proud of. Blige has been nominated for two Golden Globes, including best supporting actress and best original song in the Netflix filmĀ Mudbound.Ā 

The Queen of Hip Hop Soul spoke with The Los Angeles Times about how she felt about her nomination, which she found out about while still in bed. “This is different because [acting] is something Iā€™ve always set out to do and I wanted to get it right and do it right,” she said. “The reward that comes with this is this nomination so Iā€™m grateful. It feels good because Iā€™m being nominated for something other than singing. [laughs] I donā€™t even know what else to say. Iā€™m just so grateful.”

Blige also dished on what she hopes people take away from her character Florence Jackson in the film.”To be humble. To be powerful. To know who we are. Florence is like every woman. Sheā€™s the center and holds things together without getting too emotional about it,” Blige said. “She loves her family. So, I hope people know that ā€¦ you can figure a way out of things. Florence was a quiet, silent power.”

Mudbound follows the story of two men ā€“ one white, one black ā€“ returning home from WWII to life on the Mississippi Delta. As their families struggle to share the land, they discover what they hold in common is more true than what tears them apart.
