Kimberly Steward (5/7)

Steward either has beginners’ luck or the golden touch or some amalgamation of the two. Manchester by the Sea, a tearjerker about a handyman’s homecoming following his brother’s death, was the first scripted film Steward ever produced, and it’s earned her a nod for Best Picture. She and Oprah Winfrey are the only two black female producers to be nominated in the category, but Winfrey’s Selma lost out to Birdman in 2015, so Steward could make history if Manchester takes home this year’s top prize.
