    Out of the ones I watched, my favorites are Pam Grier who was terribly snubbed and Whoopi Goldberg who deserved to win in that lineup. Sidibe and Davis were good too while Berry was awful and is one of the worst winners.
    I’ll make sure to watch the rest, What’s Love has been on my watchlist for a long time already.
    Outside of the poll, I really liked Marianne Jean-Baptiste in Secret & Lies altough the film is quite overrated.

    I’d say Whoopee Goldberg with Angela Bassett as the runner up.

    From this poll, I voted for Dorothy Dandridge. Must give credit where credit is due! For most iconic black female role ever, I would pick a supporting one: Hattie McDaniel in “Gone with the Wind.”

    Whitney Houston for the win! Oh wait, she isn’t even on the list.

    Halle Berry should be on the list for Jinx (Bond Girl)

    Where is Zendaya in Spiderman movies?

    Lupita as Red?

    Naomi Harris in 28 Days Later is so iconic, where is she????

    Hard to chose b/w Dorothy, Diana, Whoopi, Pam, Whitney, and Angela.

    Does playing an alien count? Zoe Saldana as Neytiri and Gamora.
