Carter is first black costume designer to win Oscar

Also, Ruth Carter becomes the first black person to win an award for Best Costume Designing, while Hannah Beachler also got the same milestone for Best Production Design.

Black Panther may not have taken home top honours, but the critically acclaimed film made history when it became the first superhero movie ever to be nominated for best picture.

As for the Best Production Design awards, Hannah Beachler did the majority of the speaking for herself and Jay Hart.

This was Carter's third Oscar nomination and her first win, the first two being for Malcom X in 1992 and Amistad in 1997. Previous Marvel Cinematic Universe films such as Doctor Strange, The Avengers, both entries of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, and Iron Man have earned nomainations at the Oscars but Ruth E. Carter's incredible work on Black Panther finally brought the gold to the MCU. Our genius director, Ryan Coogler, you are a guiding force. Thank you for your trust and understanding my role in telling the African-American story.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" led the 91st Academy Awards, taking home four awards in the best actor, film editing, sound mixing and sound editing categories.
