Halle Berry Says It’s ‘Heartbreaking’ She’s Still Only Black Best Actress Oscar Winner


Its has been 20 years since Halle Berry won an Academy Award in 2002 for Best Actress Oscar for her role in Monster’s Ball. Now 20 years later she is still the only Black woman to win the Oscar in that category. Let’s not forget that Mo’Nique, Lupita Nyong’o and viola Davis have won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress but overall there has been a lack of a appreciation for Black female actors. Halle recently addressed the issue that Black woman are often overlooked for awards. Halle said, we can’t always judge success or progress by how many awards we have. Does that mean that if we don’t get the exceptionally excellent nod, that we are not great and we’re not successful and we’re not challenging the world with our art, and our opportunities aren’t growing? No Black woman is nominated in the category this year. The 94th Academy Awards are this Sunday on ABC.
