Adepero Oduye

Adepero Oduye got her big break in last year's Pariah but it was Meryl Streep shouting her out at this year's Golden Globes that made audiences take notice. The Nigerian American was among the all-star ensemble cast of the African-American remake of Steel Magnolias. Oduye shined in her portrayal of Annelle, a role made famous by actress Daryl Hannah in the original.
