Halle recently shared her thoughts on being the only black woman to win Best Actress at the Oscars.

“I’m disappointed. I’m inspired though, when I see how many people of colour are doing such good work out there. The quality and value of our work isn’t determined by an award. I would like to see more of them recognised, absolutely, but we all need to find the win in the work, and doing our craft. The real win is when we’re not just selling stories of colour, that people of colour can be in everyday stories. Where we’re not saying: ‘These are the movies for black people,’” Halle shared to The Guardian.

FYI: Halle is wearing Italia Independent sunglasses.

    That’s truly sad only 1?all these years?

  • Cotton

    Dis tew much! Go to bed.

  • FerCat

    Although she won only for ‘Best Supporting’, Octavia Spencer is a far better actress than she is.

  • Courtney Puzzo

    who cares she also complains ad nauseum about being type cast in the role she won for get a clue that’s part of the job. she may be the only African American woman to win best actress but there are a few who won supporting actress Whoopi Goldberg for example won for Ghost in March 1991

  • Angel

    Take your medication.

  • Angel

    Halle is right, she’s a great actress, and there are other African American actresses that should have won it by now too.

  • suzybel

    It’s about the best actress winning the Oscar not the color of the actress. And then she says “The quality and value of our work isn’t determined by an award.” What exactly does she want? Make up your mind.
