Of all the African-American performers who were nominated for best actress, who gave your favourite performance?
I can't add all of them in the poll since they are more than 10, so I added the most prominent ones there and the rest are below:
Ruth Negga - Loving
Cynthia Erivo - Harriet
Andrea Day - The United States vs. Billie Holiday
Viola Davis - Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

1. Woopie was just phenomenal in The color Purple. One of the best performance ever black or white actresses combined. From the beginning to the end she is amazing in it. The film is absolutely beautiful but without her it would never have become this great classic. This was when Spielberg was at the top of his talent.
2 Viola and Octavia in The Help were just amazing
3. Angela Basset as Tina Turner was perfect.

I think Margaret Avery and Oprah were both nominated in supporting, not lead.

Ruth Negga is not African-American.

R7 Never said they were nominated for leading actresses. Just felt like to add Margaret Avery, that's all.

The Color Purple is a classic.
