ANDRA DAY BECOMES SECOND BLACK WOMAN TO EARN A BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS OSCAR NOMINATION (1168 hits)


Andra Day is on the road to making history. Her Oscar nomination is historic for her accomplished work as the title character in “The United States vs. Billie Holiday.” Notably, she would become only the second Black woman to win Best Actress in the Academy’s 93-year history and one of few actresses to win for their lead acting debut. Additionally, Day could become the first woman to win Best Actress for a role previously nominated in this category for a different film, with her predecessor, Diana Ross, nominated for “Lady Sings the Blues” (1972).
