The 93rd Academy of Motion Pictures awards will be aired on Sunday, April, 25 on ABC. Unlike previous years where the Oscars have been criticized for being too white, this year’s nominations, which were broadcast in March, have been praised for being more diverse.

Ever since the 1st Academy Awards in 1929, many talents have been honored, both onscreen stars and the producers, composers, directors and singers that put in the work to make the movies we love to watch on the big screens and cable.

When it comes to Oscar winners, there are some names that come to mind like second nature while others may never cross minds.

As Oscars season is upon us again and many Black creatives are getting the nods they deserve for their contributions to the industry, here are a few of them we probably never knew won Oscars.
