Ruth Carter has become the first Black woman to win two Oscars.

Carter, back in 2019 became the first Black person to win the Oscar for costume design for her work on Marvel’s Black Panther.

At the Oscars 2023, for the same film’s sequel, she won the same award.


Carter beat Catherine Martin, who won the BAFTA and Costume Designers Guild awards for her work on Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis.

She also beat Mary Zophres for Babylon, Jenny Beaven for Mrs Harris Goes to Paris and Shirley Kurata for Everything Everywhere All at Once, which was the surprise winner of the Sci-Fi Fantasy award at the CDGA.

Meanwhile, Netflix’s All Quiet on the Western Front has won the best cinematography at the ongoing 2023 Oscar awards.

“Well it’s not my birthday, but it feels like it is”, said cinematographer James Friend in his acceptance speech. “What an honour”.

The Netflix film won plaudits for its unflinching portrayal of the horrors of the first World War, beating rivals Tar, Elvis, Empire of Light, and Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths.
