Black Panther picked up its second Oscar® victory of the 91st Academy Awards. Hannah Beachler and Jay Hart have won the Oscar for Best Production Design. Beachler is the first African-American woman to win in this category.
Beachler and Hart built the wonderful world of Wakanda for director Ryan Coogler. Black Panther simply does not become the billion-dollar hit and cultural phenomenon it is without their incredible work.
