The next award, Production Design, marked yet another historic win.

Beachler's win came moments after Carter's win.

During her acceptance speech, Beachler thanked friends and family for their support to "breathe life" into her design for the hit Marvel movie "Black Panther". Thank you for honoring African royalty and the empowered way women can look and lead on screen.

The impressive costume design work in Black Panther won the film its first Academy Award on Sunday night.

Hannah Beachler and her handsome red dress were up next.

Messi nets 50th hat-trick as Barcelona snatch win at Sevilla
In all competitions, he has 33 goals in 32 games - including six in the Champions League as Barcelona chase the treble. The game was put beyond the sight of Sevilla after Luis Suarez's goal in the injury time.

In addition to a foreign language film nod, "Roma" also took home directing and cinematography Oscars for Alfonso Cuaron, while "Black Panther" surprised with wins in production design, costume design and original score.

Jay Hart and Hannah Beachler celebrate their win together. Black Panther also nabbed the Oscar for Best Original Score. The Green Book stars Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is nobody's idea of an underdog, with its 20 blockbuster films having made a combined $6.8 billion at the box office (and that's just in the USA alone). When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T'Challa's mettle as king - and as Black Panther - gets tested when he's drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk.

Marvel fans anticipated the film for 20 years, then the film was finally made and released in early 2018.

These three victories just added more feathers to Black Panther's achievements. Pitted against his own family, the king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and embrace his future as an Avenger. So it was a sure shot that Black Panther's wonderful score would have that win in the bag, too. The same also goes for Amy Adams (Vice) who now has six Oscar nominations but no win!
