1999

HBO’s Introducing Dorothy Dandridge wasn’t a blockbuster hit, but it seriously upped Halle’s rep as an elite actress around Hollywood; It even won her a Golden Globe.

The film was also a personally rewarding experience for Berry, who had long idolized Dandridge, the first woman of color to be nominated for an Academy Award for best actress for her 1954 film Carmen Jones.

While Halle was working to increase her prestige, Biz Markie and Chris Rock dissed her for Sharon Stone, Pamela Lee and Meryl Streep on the satirical track “Snow Flake.”

By now, Halle is known on a one-name basis in pop culture alongside supermodel Tyra Banks and actress Vanessa Williams as a standard of beauty.
