Halle Berry, 54, was presented the Best Actress award in 2002 for her role as Leticia Musgrove in indie drama Monster’s Ball.

“I think it’s largely because there was no place for someone like me,” the actress said.

“I thought, ‘Oh, all these great scripts are going to come my way; these great directors are going to be banging on my door,’” Berry said.

“It didn’t happen. It actually got a little harder. They call it the Oscar curse. You’re expected to turn in award-worthy performances.”

Halle Berry said she had hoped that Cynthia Erivo, 33, would have won for Harriet earlier this year.

“I thought Cynthia [Erivo, the star of ‘Harriet’] was going to do it last year. I thought Ruth [Negga, nominated for 2016’s ‘Loving’] had a really good shot at it too,” Berry said. “I thought there were women that rightfully, arguably, could have, should have. I hoped they would have, but why it hasn’t gone that way, I don’t have the answer.”

“It’s one of my biggest heartbreaks,” she said. Berry said the morning after the award, she thought, “Wow, I was chosen to open a door.’ And then, to have no one …”

“I question, ‘Was that an important moment, or was it just an important moment for me?’ I wanted to believe it was so much bigger than me. It felt so much bigger than me, mainly because I knew others should have been there before me and they weren’t.”
