The Academy Awards are the highlight of any self-respecting actor/actress' career. Many actors give their all for a role that many perceive as their best, but sometimes the Academy doesn't see what the fans and critics see.
Actress Halle Berry won an Oscar for her role in the 2001 film "Monster's Ball." The plot is centered around actor Billy Bob Thornton whose character experiences a family tragedy. Initially, a racist prison guard, Billy Bob's character begins to reexamine his bigotry when he falls in love with an African-American women, Halle Berry's character. The movie was most known for the all too real sex scene, but "Monster's Ball" was overall a good movie. But was "Monster's Ball" Halle's best acting performance? GlobalGrind thinks not.
Halle Berry should have won an Oscar for her role in the biopic of "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge." In the movie, Halle portrayed Dorothy Dandridge, who was the first black woman to be nominated for an Academy Award. Halle did an outstanding job of capturing the essence of Dorothy's demure class and wonderful acting ability.
