Best Supporting Actress: Phylicia Rashad, For Colored Girls
Directed by Tyler Perry
Runtime: 133 mins
Rashad's character, Gilda, seems determined to keep her distance from us. She is an observer — the apartment manager who watches the comings and goings of director Tyler Perry's cast in this adaptation of an Obie-winning play.
But read Rashad's face, and study her eyes — they brilliantly reflect every broken heart, every shattered life, that passes her door.
