Ruth E. Carter has become the only Black woman in Oscar history to win a second Oscar. She now has two wins and four nominations. Ruth’s win for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” came on the heels of her own mother’s passing and in her acceptance speech, she acknowledged her mother.
“Thank you to the Academy for recognizing the superhero that is a Black woman. She endures. She loves, she overcomes. She is every woman in this film. She is my mother. This past week, Mabel Carter became an ancestor. This film prepared me for this moment. Chadwick [Boseman], please take care of mom,” Carter said.
Backstage, Carter talked about how her costume elevated Angela Bassett’s character, Queen Ramonda.
I am so happy Ruth won. We will hear more from her backstage interviews in the next edition of Hollywood Live.
