These 14 actors have done amazingly to punctuate the Academy‘s seeming lack of diversity in its 87-year history. They include Denzel Washington, Jamie Foxx, Halle Berry, Hattie McDaniel and Sidney Poiter.
Others are Lupita Nyong’o, Whoopi Goldberg, Forest Whittaker, Louis Gossett Jr, Jennifer Hudson, Mo’nique, Octavia Spencer, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Morgan Freeman.
These men and women have won in the Best Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, or Supporting Actress categories.
For the second year running, all nominees in these categories have been white.
