Ruth Carter became the first black person to win the best costume design.

Immediately after that, Black Panther also won the Oscar for Best Production Design for Hannah Beachler and Jay Hart.

Two Black Panther crew members made Oscar history by becoming the first black winners in their categories. "But through costume design, we turned him into an African king", said Carter, who drew inspiration for the film's stylish and colorful garments from her travels to Africa.

"Black Panther", starring Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa, the eponymous superhero, faced off against seven other films up for the best picture award, including Netflix's "Roma", which the New York Times predicted as a favorite.

Apple, Goldman to test joint credit card with employees soon, reports WSJ
Apple is said to be planning a limited rollout a few weeks from now that will make the card available to employees for testing. Apple has been trying to break into financial services in a significant way for three years through its Apple Pay feature.

Carter and Hannah Beachler became the first African-Americans to win in their respective categories. "I hope this makes you proud". The Oscar nominated movie is preparing for Black Panther 2.

Brian Tyree Henry presenting the award for best costume design was hilarious. Accepting the award, composer Ludwig Göransson remembered, "Thank you, Ryan Coogler". He didn't take home that prize, but he did win for best adapted screenplay - and you can see his incredible acceptance speech here. "Thank you for honouring African royalty and the empowered way women can look and lead on screen". The Ryan Coogler directorial had already made history by bagging the Best Picture nomination.

The actor took to social media today to congratulate the Black Panther cast and crew for their success at Hollywood's biggest night.

Each year, the Academy has honoured films from around the world through its best foreign-language film category - but never a foreign language film from its neighbour, Mexico, despite eight previous nominations. And that just acts as further proof to show that diverse movies like Black Panther will be much more celebrated than those that aren't.
