LOS ANGELES (AP) – Ruth E. Carter made history: The costume designer for the “Black Panther” films has become the first black woman to win two Oscars.

Carter took home Best Costume Design for the Marvel sequel “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”. Carter also won an Academy Award in 2018 for “Black Panther,” making him the first African American to win in the category.

In his acceptance speech, Carter thanked the film’s director Ryan Coogler and asked if “Black Panther” star Chadwick Boseman could take care of his mother, Mabel Carter, whom he said “died last week.” ” Boseman died of cancer in 2020 at the age of 43.

“This is for my mom. She was 101,” Carter said while accepting the Oscar. She added “This movie prepared me for this moment. Chadwick, please take care of Mom,” she said.

‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ grapples with the loss of its superhero Boseman.
