Just How Many Black Actors Have Won an Oscar? The Number Is Disturbingly Low

9 hours ago | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Getty / Lee Celano With nominees like Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Ruth Negga, and Mahershala Ali rounding out the acting categories, Sunday night's Academy Awards could potentially deliver the most diverse set of winners in years. The Oscars have been plagued by obvious race issues since they began in 1929, and things seemingly came to a head with the #OscarsSoWhite discussion a couple of years ago; the overwhelming lack of diversity in nominees in both 2015 and 2016 resulted in Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs taking bigger, more noticeable steps to double the number of diverse members in its voting body by 2020. Nevertheless, a black actor (the incomparable Sidney Poitier) wasn't awarded until 1964, and it was only in 2002 that Halle Berry became the first black woman to win a best actress trophy. So, just how many black actors have won Oscars over the years? Fourteen. A whopping fourteen distinguished, talented people in 87 years. »

Halle Berry's Oscar Acceptance Speech Will Still Make You Cry, Even 15 Years Later

23 February 2017 5:05 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Halle Berry's Oscar win for Monster's Ball made her the first black woman to win best actress and only the second to win an Academy Award since the ceremony's inception in 1929. She gave a heartfelt, emotional speech that still brings us to tears thanks to its sincerity and passion; Berry didn't just accept the honor on her behalf, but paid homage to the women of color who came before her. "This moment is so much bigger than me," Berry told the crowd through tears. "This moment is for Dorothy Dandridge, Lena Horne, Diahann Carroll. It's for the women that stand beside me, Jada Pinkett, Angela Bassett, Vivica Fox. And it's for every nameless, faceless woman of color that now has a chance because this door tonight has been opened." Berry will be returning to the Oscars stage on Sunday to mark the 15th anniversary of her historic win, and »

Look Back at the Moment Halle Berry Made Oscars History

2002 was a huge year for Halle Berry. The star won the Oscar for Best Actress for her work in Monster's Ball, making history as the first black woman to win the award in that category. It was a monumental occasion for the award show and Berry, who faced off against Renée ZellwegerNicole KidmanSissy Spacek and Judi Dench.
