The 2019 Academy Awards has come and gone and we are still reeling from all of the awards given out. The Oscars is the biggest award show in the film industry and entertainment world in general and the 91st Academy Awards lived up to the show’s legacy.
Actors from hit films including A Star Is Born, The Favourite, Black Panther and Green Book arrived at the iconic Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles looking ultra fabulous as they walked the red carpet.
It was a night of firsts: Spike Lee won his first non-honorary Oscar, for co-scripting for BlacKkKlansman. Black Panther, which picked up three wins out of its seven nominations, became the first Marvel Studios movie to win an Academy Award.
It was a significant night for black filmmakers as Black Panther production designer Hannah Beachler and costume designer Ruth E. Carter each became the first black women to win in their respective categories. For Hannah Beachler, she was the first black production designer to win, ever.
Peter Ramsey, one of the co-directors of the Best Animated Feature winner Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, was the first black director to win in the category. Mahershala Ali, who won Best Supporting Actor for Green Book, became the first black actor to win in that category twice. And only the fifth black actor to win in the category over the course of the Academy Awards’ 91-year history.
Netflix’s film Roma lost the Best Picture award to Green Book but made history as the first Mexican submission for Best Foreign Language Feature to win in the category. And its Best Cinematography win for director Alfonso Cuarón – who also took Best Director – marked the first time in history that a director simultaneously won the Oscar in the cinematography category.
