H.E.R Is Two Awards Away From EGOT Status After Last Night’s Win, “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” Makes History & The Upset That Ended The Oscars Still Has Us Scratching Our Heads…

Last night’s Oscars might be one for the history books!

Unlike other awards shows held during the pandemic, the ceremony was held in person and marked one of the most diverse ceremonies in the award show’s history.

Daniel Kaluuya walked away with the title as best supporting actor in “Judas and the Black Messiah,” and H.E.R. is well on her way to EGOT status before the age of 24 with her win for the hit song “Fight for You” featured in the film.

Jamie Foxx also won big making history as the first Black lead in a Pixar film ever and nab an Oscar Award for it.

“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’s” Mia Neal and Jamika Wilson broke barriers as the first Black women to win an Oscar for makeup and hairstyle.

Glenn Close stole the spotlight when she jumped out of her seat to dance to E.U.’s 1988 hit “Da Butt,’ and the night ended awkwardly after the late Chadwick Boseman lost to 83-year-old Anthony Hopkins for Best Actor.
