Their Eyes Were Watching God (2005)

Continuing her tradition of adapting best-selling books centered on the Black experience into award-winning films, Winfrey re-teamed with Halle Berry for this television adaptation of Zora Neale Hurston's 1937 novel. While Winfrey didn't act in the film, she did host the broadcast. The film, also starring Michael Ealy, earned Berry both an Emmy and Golden Globe nomination.
