Halle Berry on heartbreaking fact about Oscar

By

The Monster’s Ball actress Halle Berry was quite upset when she realised that no black actress has won the coveted title. In 2002, the actress won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in Monster’s Ball and nearly 20 years later no black woman has received the prestigious accolade, reports Yahoo.
Halle Berry in her interview with Mirror expressed her dissatisfaction. She said, “The heartbreak I have is because I really thought that night meant that very soon after that, other women of colour, Black women, would stand beside me. Now it’s been 20 years and no one has, and so every time Oscar time comes around, I get very reflective and I think, ‘Well maybe this year, maybe this year.”
It’s not the first time Berry has reflected on her expectations for Hollywood and the fact that no other Black woman has followed her historic win.
