It's 2019 and everything has changed. For the first time in over 30 years the Oscars don't have a host. Yes, the 91st Academy Awards happened last night and it gave us all the feels: From striking fashion moments to disappointed fans and beaming winners, we’ve got all the deets for you.
It’s THE greatest cinema-related event of the year and attracts stars and celebs from all over the world. Everyone is yearning to get their hands on one of the prized little golden men that represents the crème de la crème of the movie industry. Some actors work all their lives for it, let’s never forget poor Leonardo di Caprio, who’s disappointed faces have sparked a whole online meme culture (he finally won best actor in 2016 for The Revenant, thank goodness).
Here are the great actors and winners who joined Leo in the Oscars club this year:
*Warning: you're about to experience surges of joy*
Best Director, Best Picture & Best Foreign Language Film: Alfonso Cuarón, "Roma"
The Mexican director won 3 Oscars for his foreign language film 'Roma', which is about the touching story of two Mexican girls from an underprivileged background fighting their way through life.
Best Documentary Feature: Jimmy Chin, "Free Solo"
The Oscar was handed to Jimmy Chin by the passionate rock climbing enthusiast and overall bad boy Jason Momoa. The thrilling documentary is about the first guy to ever free climb the steepest mountain in Yosemite National Park, and thereby writing rock climbing history.
Best Costume Designer: Ruth E. Carter, "Black Panther"
Ruth E. Carter is writing Oscars history! She is the first ever African-American woman to win best costume designer. But if you look at the stunning looks she created for the cinema box hit 'Black Panther', it is absolutely no surprise. She sure deserved it *Wakanda Forever*.
Best Adapted Screenplay: Spike Lee, “BlackKklansman”
Now this is what true joy looks like! Spike Lee, director of the true story about police officers infiltrating a racist group during the '70s, couldn’t contain his excitement about his win. BTW can we please talk about his look?! He went all dapper in his custom Gold Air Jordan trainers, sparkly socks and Love Hate knuckle rings #GOALS.
Best Animated Feature: "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse"
There's a hero in all of us, and we couldn't have done it without you. Thank you to the Academy for recognizing the incredible team behind #SpiderVerse: Winner - Best Animated Feature pic.twitter.com/qxBq9dJlHq— Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse (@SpiderVerse) February 25, 2019
Miles Morales and his crew has won best animated feature! Honestly tho, the graphics and whole development of the storyline is truly unique and simply stunning. Not a comic fan? This one is definitely worth a look, even if it’s just for the artistic skill of it.
Best Original Song: "Shallow", Lady Gaga
Although Lady Gaga didn’t win best actress for her role in A Star is Born (well done Olivia Colman), she literally collapsed with joy over her Oscar for the best original song, “Shallow”. Her live duet of the song, with co-star Bradley Cooper, completely blew us away and reminded us just how much she deserved that award. Not only did she fulfil her life dream but she also made all our fashion dreams come true with some serious bling!
Best Supporting Actress: Regina King, "If Beale Street Could Talk"
In her role as Sharon Rivers, the caring mother of a girl who seeks to save her lover from being falsely convicted, Regina King has not only stolen our hearts but also swiped the Oscar for best supporting actress!
Best Supporting Actor: Mahershala Ali, "Green Book"
Mahershala Ali won best supporting actor for his role of the eccentric jazz pianist Don Shirley, in the 'Green Book'. The highly controversial movie cause an online uproar on Twitter after winning the Oscar for best picture last night.
Best Actress: Olivia Colman, "The Favourite"
The most surprising win of the night! Since everyone was rooting for Lady Gaga to win best actress, Olivia Coleman emerged as a true underdog when the award was announced. As Queen Anne, ruler of 18th century England, Coleman is the shining star of the black comedy drama, along the likes of Emma stone and Rachel Weisz. A film packed with #girlpower.
Best Actor: Rami Malek, "Bohemian Rhapsody"
We sure bet Rami Malek has been singing “We are the Champions” all night long! The Egyptian star truly deserved the Oscar for best actor for his role as music legend Freddie Mercury. His on screen portrayal of Queen’s lead singer was breathtaking and did justice to the great singer. Thank you Rami for creating the ultimate tribute to a true music icon. You rock.
That's all, folks!
