The Best Supporting Actress category for the 2017 Oscars is making history for an amazing reason.
It is the first time in Oscars history where three black female performers were nominated in an acting category at the same time. It is also the first time that three black artists hold a majority in any category.
This is not the first time three actors of color were nominated in the same category.
