I will NEVER EVER EVER forgive Halle Berry for what she did.

i found this odd at first, then i saw the year on this picture. Taken before catwoman came out. Makes sense.

I think you're being too hard on poor Halle Berry for Catwoman. It's not her fault the movie stunk, blame the director. Halle is always singled out for the failure of the movie and how bad it is, but she wasn't the producer, writer, or director and ultimately, they have to take the lion's share of the blame. Hell, Halle even won a Razzie Award for Worst Actress for Catwoman, and you know what? She actually went and accepted the award in person! In fact, she's the only Oscar winner to ever accept a Razzie personally - just goes to show that she's gracious and can take her fair share of professional ribbing.

I don't blame her for ruining Catwoman. I blame her for ruining Storm. That can't be forgiven.

June 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRyan T.

Wrong. I believe Sandra Bullock showed up to accept her Razzie for ALL ABOUT STEVE same year she won Oscar for BLIND SIDE?

June 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJonie

Halle Berry did not ruin Catwoman.. I believe it was I who ruined Catwoman. :-(

June 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSHARON STONE


I stand corrected then. Not really a Sandra Bullock fan, so she's not on my radar.

Sharon, -- I believe there's enough badness in that movie to blame everyone. Let's be generous with the blaming!

Halle was saying: I'm really sorry for what you're about to see. I am now going to lick you. Free of charge.
(Lick=cat cleaning. Not the other one. Jeez :p)

"i am catwoman hear me roar"

"Saved by kitty litter"

"Life's a bitch now so am i"

cool photo though.

i think it's hard for anyone to ever trump Pfeiffer's Selena Kyle.Catwoman..just my humble opinion

That's actually circa 2002 at the SAG Awards where Halle won for Monster's Ball (yuc) and Michelle was nommed for White Oleander.

June 2, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNicole

@Nicole: I distinctly recall Halle Berry's accepting her SAG for "Monster's Ball" in a white dress, so this picture may have indeed been taken in another year.

@Jazz: Almost everything Pfeiffer's Catwoman says is epic. One of my all-time favorite film performances.

June 2, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTroy H

Nicole -- that's different years. Monster's Ball was a 2001 film and White Oleander a 2002 film. So this is January 2003 when Michelle was nominated. I'm guessing Halle was presenting, given that she's already won?
