Halle Berry Cancels Oscars Appearance, Blames Foot

Halle Berry will be sitting out from this year’s Academy Awards reports People.com. The Oscar award-winning actress was scheduled to present during the ceremony; however, her broken foot–an injury sustained on the set of Cloud Atlas last September–is the the culprit for her no-show. While we anticipated the regal beauty donning a gorgeous gown as usual, it’s probably taxing to hobble down the red carpet.

Ten years ago (74th Annual Oscars), Berry became the first African American woman to win Best Actress for her role in Monster’s Ball. Fast forward, and tonight we’ll be anticipating that coveted win for Viola Davis.
