Halle Berry Says It’s ‘Heartbreaking’ That She’s Still the Only Black Best Actress Oscar W

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

In 2002, Berry won the award for best actress for her role in 'Monster's Ball.'.

The feat made her the first Black woman to ever win an Oscar for that category.

'NME' reports no other Black woman has won that award since then.

In a recent interview with 'The New York Times,' Berry was noticeably upset that her win "didn't open the door" for more Black actresses to follow in her footsteps.

The fact that there’s no one standing next to me is heartbreaking, Halle Berry, via 'The New York Times'.

But Berry also pointed out that "we can't always judge success of progress by how many awards we have.".

Awards are the icing on the cake — they’re your peers saying you were exceptionally excellent this year — , Halle Berry, via 'The New York Times'.

... but does that mean that if we don’t get the exceptionally excellent nod, that we were not great, and we’re not successful, and we’re not changing the world with our art, and our opportunities aren’t growing?, Halle Berry, via 'The New York Times'.
