The show kicked off with two historic awards, as both Ruth E. Carter and Hannah Beachler became the first black women to win in their categories -- Costume Design and Production Design, respectively -- for "Black Panther." In addition, until tonight, an African-American woman had not won an Oscar in a non-acting category in more than 30 years. Carter and Beachler changed that in 5 minutes.
Mahershala Ali also made history, being the first black actor to win two awards in the Best Supporting Actor category. He won for "Green Book" tonight and previously won in 2017 for "Moonlight."
"Roma" won three Oscars, many of which made history as the Netflix drama is the first foreign language film from Mexico to win an Oscar. Alfonso Cuaron became the first director to win in the cinematography category for a film he also directed. Cuaron also took home the award for Best Director.
