In Honor of Women’s History Month, Free’s World will be honoring different women who made their mark in history. Today’s edition is dedicated to Hattie McDaniel.
In the early 1900s, Hattie McDaniel showed off her many talents in each field of Entertainment. She was a singer, actress, comedian, radio performer, and song writer.
In 1940, Hattie broke down many barriers by becoming the first African American to win an Academy Award for her role in ‘Gone With The Wind.’ She also became the first black woman to sing on US radio airwaves. Over the course of her illustrious career, Hattie appeared in more than 300 films. After winning the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, she stated:
“Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, fellow members of the motion picture industry and honored guests: This is one of the happiest moments of my life, and I want to thank each one of you who had a part in selecting me for one of their awards, for your kindness. It has made me feel very, very humble; and I shall always hold it as a beacon for anything that I may be able to do in the future. I sincerely hope I shall always be a credit to my race and to the motion picture industry. My heart is too full to tell you just how I feel, and may I say thank you and God bless you.”
Over 70 years later, we must thank Hattie McDaniel for opening the door. Sunday night at the Oscars, we were able to watch Lupita Nyong’o fulfill her dreams by winning the same award that Hattie won in 1940. Check out a scene from her Oscar winning performance in ‘Gone With The Wind’ below!
As we all know, fashion is just as important as winning the trophies at awards shows. Last night at the Oscars, we got to see which designers these entertainers chose to rock with. Check out some of the different styles from the handsome men and beautiful women of Hollywood!
