I can see why Halle Berry deserved her oscar...

It is only recently that I finally got around to watching "Monster's Ball." But wow, what a great movie!! I know lots of people think that Halle doesn't deserve her best actress oscar (which she got in 2002 I think now) but her performance in this movie is phenomenal, just a truly moving performance that showcases her deep talent that is too often wasted on flimsy films like "Catwoman" and "Gothika" ( Gothika which I secretly enjoyed though ) That sex scene between her and Billy Bob is one of the most graphic I have seen in a Hollywood-type commercial movie Speaking of Billy Bob Thornton, an honourable mention for him too as he gives a very subtle, yet powerful performance in this movie too. Now I would just like to see Halle getting more of these meatier roles that displays her great skills and depth as an actress

Given the shit she was up against, she deserved it. It's votes that count! You know she got some pitty votes for having to make it with Billy Bob. She won in that (hopefully former) era of hot chicks uglying up and playing a pathetic character.

Catwoman is one of my favorite movies! Over the top campy, which is what it was supposed to be. Plus, she looked totally hot, and who can't fantasize about becoming half-cat after being flushed down the drain with the toxic waste? I love the scene in the dump where she's dead and the cats gather around and the main one revives her and her pupils turn feline! Great stuff!!! I can watch it several times a week and never got bored.

I didn't like the movie, but I'm glad she won because I still insist her best performance was her performance in "Losing Isaiah".

I thought it should have gone to Sissy Spacek that year.

Now "Losing Isiah" was the picture Halle should of won for. I didn't like Monster's Ball but thought Halle did a wonderful job in her role. The sex scene with ugly ass Billy Bob was too much for this bro to stomach.

She deserved that Oscar.
She made us to a degree understand why Angelina Jolie was with Billy Bob.
The dude can just fuck. He always does look a bit white trash all the time but hey it doesn't matter when you can fuck.
I don't really find Tommy Lee apealing but when you fuck Pamela Anderson and your dick is a bit above average people stop caring.
She deserved an Oscar and some porn award just for the fuck scene.

I just hope this doesn't start a trend. Oprah keep the clothes on! Please!

Helen I COMPLETELY agree with you on every remarkable point. And I'm not embarrassed to admit it.

What? Are you KIDDING me?!

I forgot to add that I couldn't finish the movie [Monster's Ball]. I just found it too painful. Maybe I'll give it another go some day.
