Ruth Carter Makes History As First Black Woman to Win 2 Oscars



Ruth E. Carter, the costume designer best known for her creativity on the Marvel blockbuster Black Panther, has made history as the first black woman to win two Oscars awards.

Black Panther earned Carter her first Oscar in 2019, and she later made history by being the first black person to win two costume design awards with the Oscars.

In a crowded field that featured Shirley Kurata’s costumes for the multiverse epic Everything, Everything, All At Once and Catherine Martin’s costumes for Baz Luhrmann’s biopic Elvis, she was honoured for her work on the superhero movie sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever at this year’s award.

In her speech, she thanked director Ryan Coogler and asked late “Black Panther” star Chadwick Boseman to look after her mother, who recently died.

“Thank you to the Academy for recognizing the superhero that is a black woman,” Carter began after her win on Saturday night.
“She endures, she loves, she overcomes; she is every woman in this film. She is my mother. This past week, Mable Carter became an ancestor. This film prepared me for this moment. Chadwick, please take care of Mom.”

The history-maker encouraged other black women and young designers to keep up with their excellent work.
“I feel that this win opens the door for other young costume designers who may not think that this industry is for them. And hopefully, they’ll see me, and they’ll see my story, and they’ll think that they can win an Oscar too.”
