Five black women, including Viola Davis for “Fences” at the 2017 ceremony, have won Best Supporting Actress since 2002. And two black men, including Mahershala Ali for “Moonlight” in 2017, have won Best Supporting Actor in that time.
Denzel Washington won Best Actor for “Training Day” the same year as Berry; two other black men, Jamie Foxx and Forest Whitaker, have been bestowed the honor since.
Berry, who stars in the upcoming thriller “Kidnap,” gave “Wonder Woman” lead Gal Gadot a shoutout for “setting the stage for women of all races.”
