Before Will Smith melted down and ruined Sunday night’s Oscars for the other winners, Ariana DeBose made history as the first Afro-Latina actress to take home an Academy Award.
DeBose, who picked up the best supporting actress honor for her role as Anita in West Side Story, also became the first openly gay actress of color to win an Oscar.
“Even in this weary world that we live in, dreams do come true,” she said in her acceptance speech at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.
In a twist of fate, Rita Moreno became the first Latina to win an Oscar for her performance as Anita in the 1961 version of West Side Story.

Director and executive producer Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson picked up his first Oscar after taking the best documentary award for Summer of Soul about the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival.
“This is such a stunning moment for me right now. But this is not about me. This is about marginalized people in Harlem that needed to heal from pain,” he said.
CODA, the Apple TV+ film with a predominantly deaf cast, also had an historic night, picking up three awards, including best picture. Apple now has bragging rights as the only streaming service to win the best picture prize.
