Black Media's Coverage of the 93rd Academy Awards
While we didn't come away with a lot of wins at last night's 93rd Annual Academy Awards, Black publications found ways to celebrate one of Hollywood most illustrious nights of the year.
While Variety take the award on Oscars coverage, because no one covers the Oscars like Variety, there is black media that gives it special seasoning and focuses on everything with melanin. Take for example Essence Magazine's cover article entitled: "Oscar's 2021: All the Melanin Magic At the Awards Show" which of course put the spotlight on the fashion.
