Women Have The Best Night In Oscar History With Record 15 Winners

It was an amazing night for women at the 2019 Academy Awards.

A total of 15 talented female creatives took home the coveted golden statuette at Sunday’s ceremony, the most in Oscar history. From Lady Gaga winning Best Original Song for “Shallow”, to Ruth E. Carter being awarded the Best Costume Design trophy for “Black Panther”, women led the way this year in a handful of the top creative categories.

The previous record held for most female wins in a ceremony was 12, which came both in 2007 and 2015. This tremendous feat comes just one year after only six women earned Oscars. With women continuously fighting for equality and representation in the film industry, there’s no doubt that this is a tremendous way to close this awards season. It can only get better as the years go by!
