“I dreamed of this night and I prayed for this night, honestly. Not only just for being a hardworking costume designer, but what it would mean for young people coming behind me,” Ruth Carter tweeted soon after she won the ‘Best Costume Design’ Academy Awards for ‘Black Panther’.
Indeed, every Oscar nominee aspires to win the coveted award in the world of Cinema. So Ruth Carter was no different from any other nominees at the 91st Academy Awards. She became the first African-American Costume Designer to win an Oscars in this special category. Ruth Carter has etched her name in the history books and made her existence immortal.
Ruth Carter addressed the packed house at the 91st Academy Awards saying, “WOW! WOW! I got it! It has been my life’s honor to create costumes. Thank you to the Academy and thank you for honoring African royalty and the empowered way, women can look and lead on screen. This has been a long time coming. Spike Lee thank you for my start. I hope this makes you proud. Marvel may have created the first black superhero, but through costume design, we turned him into an African king.
