1991: At the 63rd Academy Awards, Whoopi Goldberg makes history by winning Best Supporting Actress for her performance in "Ghost." The win made her the first black actress since Hattie McDaniel in 1939 to win an Academy Award. "Dances with Wolves," directed by and starring Kevin Costner, otherwise dominated the ceremony, winning seven Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director.
