During her interview with Variety, Goldberg reminisced about her first Oscar win from 30 years ago and looked back on her outfit from that special night: a black sequined column gown.

“I looked really good,” she said. “My hair was cool. Dress was cute.”

Goldberg had been searching for a gown that felt like it was uniquely "her," and she was thrilled when she stepped into the style from veteran costume designer Nolan Miller.

“I couldn’t look glamorous like other people look glamorous. I wasn’t thin and I wasn’t a white lady, so I had to find my own style.”

The 65-year-old also reflected on the Black women who helped pave the way for her successful career in Hollywood and named several stars who have inspired her.

“I think of all the women — Diahann Carroll, Pearl Bailey, Dorothy Dandridge, Butterfly McQueen, Hattie McDaniel, Juanita Hall — who did great, amazing work that was overlooked.”
