  1. Way back in the day, Hattie McDaniel was the first African American to win. That was 1939. Out of the hundreds of actresses in Hollywood, Ms. McDaniels was the 12th woman to receive an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress and she beat out Olivia De Havilland and three other Caucasian actresses. Sidney Poitier won Best Actor Oscar in 1963 and an honorary Oscar in 2002.
