Black Panther has become the first Marvel Studios film to win an Oscar, taking home the Best Costume Design award.
The Oscar went to Ruth Carter, who was responsible for coming up with the vibrant, layered, incredible clothes worn by the people of Wakanda. Though some considered Carter to be a frontrunner because of the sheer volume and quality of the costumes, this was her first major recognition. And it was her third Oscar nomination. She was previously nominated for Malcolm X and Amistad.
In addition to Best Costume Design, Black Panther is nominated for Best Picture, Best Production Design, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing, Best Original Song and Best Original Score at this year’s awards.
Black Panther has gone on to win Best Production Design & Best Original Score
