Berry pressured by Oscar win

Hollywood beauty Halle Berry claims the pressures of her 2002 Oscar win have hindered her chances of future nomination.

The 38-year-old actress - who this year receives a Razzie Award for Worst Actress for her performance in Catwoman - is finding it difficult to regain her Academy Award-winning success.

She says: "When you fail after you have an Oscar you fall even harder because you've been put on such a pedestal.

"When you would fall before, nobody would notice and you'd get up and dust yourself off and you'd be back in the game.

"But after you win, I think it's curse, so it's actually good that I'm getting a Razzie this year because now I'm back at the bottom. The expectation has been taken off me."
