"Black Panther is taking over in the #Oscars!"

At Sunday's awards ceremony so far, Black Panther received Oscars for Achievement in Costume Design awarded to Ruth Carter; and Achievement in Production Design, given to Hannah Beachler (production design) and Jay Hart (set decoration).
Carter thanked Spike Lee, who provided her career start with his 1988 film "School Daze".
"I stand here stronger than I was yesterday", she said. In her acceptance speech, Carter said that the award had "been a long time coming". "I stand here with agency and self-worth because of Ryan Coogler, who not only made me a better designer, a better storyteller, a better person". Let us know in the comments section below.
