Sanaa Lathan, Love & Basketball (2000)

A Yale grad with Ivy League brains and girl-next-door beauty, Lathan crushed hearts with her first leading role as Omar Epps' romantic (and athletic) match in this Black rom-com classic. She also earned an NAACP Image Award, a BET Award and an Independent Spirit Award for the film.
