#2: HALLE BERRY

What to look forward to this year: With the small exception of 2010's relatively unseen Frankie and Alice and her arguable Golden Globe nomination, we haven't heard much about Halle Berry's film career since 2007's Things We Lost In The Fire. For the past few years, she's sporadically graced the tabloids, captured as a mother at the park rather than an actress on set. But with five films due out this year, including the star-studded New Year's Eve, Berry is ready to reclaim some Oscar-caliber respect.
