The previous record held for most female wins in a ceremony was 12, which came both in 2007 and 2015. This tremendous feat comes just one year after only six women earned Oscars. With women continuously fighting for equality and representation in the film industry, there's no doubt that this is a tremendous way to close this awards season. It can only get better as the years go by!
