Here I thought that she was merely gorgeous and a terrific actress. Reuters reports that she's classy too.
[Halle] Berry was named Worst Actress of 2004 by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation for her performance in Catwoman and she showed up to accept her "Razzie" carrying the Oscar she won in 2002 for Monster's Ball.

"They can't take this away from me, it's got my name on it!" she quipped. A raucous crowd cheered her on as she gave a stirring recreation of her Academy Award acceptance speech, including tears.

She thanked everyone involved in Catwoman, a film she said took her from the top of her profession to the bottom.

"I want to thank Warner Brothers for casting me in this piece of shit," she said as she dragged her agent on stage and warned him "next time read the script first."

It is rare for a Razzie winner to show up at the spoof awards held on the night before Oscars --- but Berry did, saying her mother taught her that to be "a good winner you had to be a good loser first." She received a standing ovation.

The BBC actually has a picture of her accepting the award --- Razzie in one hand and Oscar in the other --- and shows that she didn't want to hog the limelight.
I'd like to thank the rest of the cast --- to give a really bad performance like mine you need to have really bad actors.
What a woman!
