22 Zoe Saldana Zoe Saldana

I discovered zoe in Centerstage. she is multitalented, a terrific dancer and a fabulous actress. its a shame she's not in more films. in crossroads her role was to overact, but in centerstage, she's easygoing and relaxed

She's played in Crossroads, and although maybe over-acted a little, she seems funny. And she was great in the small part of Anamarie in Pirates 1.

The lady can dance, act and she is not only beautiful but has personality to go with that.

Can she play Storm on X men Apocolepes

23 Oprah Winfrey Oprah Winfrey Oprah Gail Winfrey is an American media proprietor, talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist.

Oprah Winfrey is an amazing actress and she does not suck. The triumphant role that she played as Annie Lee Cooper in Selma was phenomenal, she was also wonderful in The Butler. She deserve to be on the actual list. It's a disgrace that she is not above 19th place. She is an actress that makes me dumbfounded.

This women should be way up that list people need to realize the influential roles that she has chosen to do and do well.

She sucks. Can't stand her All ego. Little else.

Please, ugly

31 Carmen Ejogo
32 Kerry Washington Kerry Washington

Kerry is by far one of the most talented actresses on the big and small screens. It's amazing she's not in the top five of this list or any other list. Her humility and work ethic makes her an example for all to follow. I've seen many of her movies and she brings 200% to each role. I love that her private life is just that... "Private". Her legacy on and off the screen will go on forever. I hope she wins the Emmy. Not because she will be the first black actress to win, but because she deserves to win. AND SHE DOES DESERVE TO WIN IT!

Kerry Washington should definitely be in the top list of 10 black actresses. She has done amazing work from save the last dance, to The Last King of Scotland. I aspire to have a career as diverse and interesting as hers.

Best black actress and one of the most beautiful women in the world. Put $ that she will become one of the best actresses of any ethnic background
