Give her some credit. Even today, Halle Berry can only laugh when she is asked what went through her mind when she heard her name read out on Oscar night 2002.

“Do you know, I can’t even tell you because I think I just checked out of my body,” she says. Her eyes widen. “I don’t remember walking up those steps. I know what happened after that because I’ve seen the video. But when they said my name I looked at my mom and I looked at my husband and I can’t even remember seeing their faces.”

Berry’s acceptance speech was certainly memorable. Clutching her statuette for best actress for her role in the film ‘Monster’s Ball’ – the first time in the Academy’s 74-year history that it had been awarded to a black woman – she struggled to articulate her emotion. “This moment is so much bigger than me,” she sobbed. “This moment is for Dorothy Dandridge, Lena Horne, Diahann Carroll. It’s for the women that stand beside me – Jada Pinkett, Angela Bassett – and it’s for every nameless, faceless woman of colour that now has a chance because this door tonight has been opened.”

She has insisted all along that she hadn’t contemplated winning, or practised a speech beforehand. Personally, I wish she had; for that speech of hers redefined cringe-worthiness.
