Jen Neal, executive vice president of Live Events, Specials and E! News said in a statement, “Throughout her career, Halle Berry has broken down barriers, directed and starred in diverse roles that have paved the way for others in the industry.”

She followed this up with an Academy Award for Best Actress in 2002 for her controversial character in “Monster’s Ball” and an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Television Movie in “Their Eyes Were Watching God.”
