Berry, Denzel Make Oscars History
Denzel Washington is only the second African American male to win an Best Actor Oscar since Sidney Poitier's win for Lilies of the Field
in 1963. Halle Berry is the first African American female to win Best Actress ever. Berry's speech

And why didn't the camera flash onto Jada Pinkett-Smith when Berry said that? Now, that would have been a true Oscar moment.
