The Oscars returned after three years and everyone was ecstatic because for once, people can actually sit beside one another as they emerge winners and share in the smiles and tears of their fellow nominees.
The 94th Academy Award took place on the 27th of March at Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles and it was a night to remember as stars who haven’t won an Oscar, made history. So here are stars who won Oscars for the first time at the 94th Academy Award;
1. Will Smith
Having been nominated for Best Actor twice in 2002 for Ali, and in 2007 for The Pursuit of Happyness, Smith was nominated for Best Picture and Best Actor in the movie King Richard and this time he said he had to take that Oscar home, as he bagged the award for Best Actor this time. Even though the slap he gave Chris Rock for the joke he made about his wife seems to overshadow his first award, it was still a big win for the actor.

2. Ariana DeBose

Ariana DeBose made history at the 94th Academy Award on the 27th of March when she became the first Afro Latina and first openly queer woman of color to win an Oscar. A feat not many have been able to achieve, this diva has broken the chains. DeBose took home the best-supporting actress award for her role as Anita in Steven Spielberg’s retelling of “West Side Story,” 60 years after Rita Moreno won an Oscar for the same role.

He is much more than just the drummer for The Roots, titles like author, songwriter, and film director are just a few of the many hats the talented Philly native wears on any given day. Questlove walked away with his first Oscar at the 94th Annual Academy Awards for the Best Documentary category for the film Summer of Soul which he directed.
