Academy and Museum to Gift Replacement Oscar Statuette to Howard University in Honor of Hattie McDaniel’s Legacy

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures have announced they will be gifting a replacement of Hattie McDaniel's historic best supporting actress Oscar to Howard University in Washington, D.C. to honor her legacy. The original award went missing from Howard University’s collection, so the Academy and the Museum have decided to replace it with a statuette to serve as a reminder of her legacy and the power of representation in the motion picture industry. The replacement Oscar statuette will be presented to Howard University in the near future.
