    It’s been over a decade since Halle Berry made history by winning her atrociously undeserved Oscar for Monster’s Ball and became the first black actress to win Best Actress, a title that Whoopi Goldberg should hold for The Color Purple (a rank that Pam Grier should have joined for Jackie Brown).

    Who will be the next one? I’ve included my personal favorite black actresses in the poll, but there are obviously way more than ten possibilities.

    I guess its the matter of opinion but I thought Halle Berry was a clear winner in 2001. 

    Where is the highest grossing black actress period, Zoe Saldana?
    Of course her family’s language is spanish but she is black (out of her mouth).  
    If Zoe can play Eartha Kitt, then theres an Oscar. Eartha was trully one of a kind.

    Viola still is the answer. The Fences category fraud only pushed back her inevitable Lead Actress win for a few years

    I don’t see Octavia doing it since she’s pretty much a textbook supporting act, but I would love to see that happen

    Lupita could do it too

    Putting it in this poll as evidence, I think it’s Cynthia Erivo in 2020 for Harriet

    Basically any black actress that is hot can win this. She just needs right vehicle and of course has to be hot  as fuck like Halle was. Then award is hers.

    By that metric Ruth Negga should have upset Huppert and Stone.

    It is unfortunate but I don’t think that with the Academy’s history any black actresses that have won supporting can win Actress (Octavia, Lupita, Viola). I think we just have to wait for someone new to come along who is undeniable.
