Oscar Trivia, Part 2
Speaking of Oscar trivia: yesterday, I ask about the first black Oscar winner. What other African American women have won best supporting actress awards?
Octavia Spencer won tonight. Mo'Nique won three years ago. But in the 70 years between Hattie McDaniel in 1939 and Mo'Nique in 2009, there was only one other black woman to win.
Hint: everyone let out a big whooooopey when it was announced.
