Halle Berry Clarifies Oscar Comments


Last month Halle Berry raised eyebrows after confessing her Oscar win didn't mean anything [click here if you missed that].

Halle clarifies her statement...

Halle Berry tells ET
"Of course it meant something, you saw me up there I was speechless."
"I guess I'm just disappointed that there has not been another woman [of color] in 15 years that has stood on that stage like I did that night. That's just wildly disappointing for me." 
"I hope that in the next years to come, someone else stands there and we continue to evolve and grow and that more projects are made for women of color because the more work we have, the better, [and] the more chances we have to be there."

Well in the 15 years since that Oscar win Ms Berry, you have worked with ZERO Black film directors. How can you complain about White directors not giving Black actresses a chance when you dont give Black directors a chance?

Lee Daniels was the one who directed the movie that she won an Oscar for.

Halle wanted attention and she got it. This was her backhanded way of reaffirming her relevancy saying in 15 years she has been the ONLY black woman to win a best actress Oscar.


I see you Halle. This still won't make directors hire you, since you can't act, you're a PR disaster (divorce battles) and you're no longer a sexpot.

Really...Halle..look at the role you had to play just to get that Oscar...degrading...And I hope you are talking a leading role only..I really do not care what role these other ladies played..J Hudson, Monique, O Spencer, V Davis and L Nyongo...they are also Oscars winners...And when you won that Oscars you forgot about all the Blacks that helped you get to that point...So please have a seat...Lawd that is not the best picture of Halle Berry!!!!

@9:17 Lee Daniels wasn't the Director, he was a producer..the Director was Marc Forster.

The movie was garbage she got the Oscar to appease an agenda not talent
Just like precious movie getting noms
And awards
Real acting is Diana Ross in lady sings the blues and Angela Bassett in what's love got to do with it ....actresses showing emotions taking you through it
Forget the Oscars its nothing but an agenda pushing propaganda fueled award show....
Doesn't deserve any of my punctuation

LMAO

....housewife who just did a line of coke.

The PTB made her retract her statement and were like "oh really Halle, if you don't want to be blacklisted then "clarify" your comments".

I'm sure she was asked this question and responded as truthfully as she saw how. They weren't happy with her response because they want her to worship the acedemy for giving her an Oscar.
