1. Halle Berry. She had a Steven Spielberg-produced TV series (Extant) and babydaddy drama with Gabriel Aubry this year. But regardless of specifics, the 48-year-old beauty is always on the public radar.
7. Jennifer Hudson. June’s Lullaby drama didn’t set box office on fire; September’s JHUD album didn’t blow folks away either. But Hudson still nabbed a Grammy nomination for the R. Kelly collab, “It’s Your World.”
10. Rosario Dawson. In October, Netflix announced Dawson’s role as Night Nurse on their upcoming Marvel superhero series Daredevil, but her turn as a reporter in Chris Rock’s Top Five was one for the ages.
