Introducing Dorothy Dandridge Award

23 Jan, 2000

Berry wins the award for best performance by an actress in a mini-series or motion picture made for television for her role in Introducing Dorothy Dandridge at the 57th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

That was the first time I had ever been nominated for an award like that. And playing her life, there were so many opportunities she was not afforded. A lot of it had to do with the state of racial relations in the country at the time. And the other 50% was her own masochistic personality that led to her own downfall, you know? I felt very much when I was up there, that I was sort of up there for her. For all the things that didn’t come her way, that in that moment I felt that it was really about her too. Because I was winning for telling her story, I felt very much like it was her moment.
