The 2019 Oscars premiered on Sunday, Feb. 24, 2019. This was one of the more interesting years because the award show did not have a host. There was no one that took time away from the actual show to talk about how they were honored to be there and to present the awards. The awards were just said, as they should be. The results of the Oscars are the most important part of the show, and whether people agree with them is always up for debate. Also, one of the most controversial awards was not included in this ceremony, the Most Popular movie category. These are the results of the Oscars:
The award for Best Picture went to “Green Book.” This movie also won an award for Best Original Screenplay. In the animation categories, the best animated feature went to “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” and the Best Animated Short award went to “Bao” which was a short film that premiered before “The Incredibles 2.” The last two categories that were announced during the ceremony were the awards for Best Documentary Short which was won by “Period. End of Sentence” and the Best Live Action Short Film, which went to “Skin.” “Blackkklansman” earned the Best Adapted Screenplay Award.
The award for Best Director went to Alfonso Cuaron for the film “Roma.” This film also won Best Cinematography and Best Foreign-Language film.
The Best Actress award went to Olivia Colman in her role in “The Favourite,” where she plays an ailing 18th century English queen. Rami Malek earned Best Actor for his role in the film “Bohemian Rhapsody.” This film also won other awards such as Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Film Editing. The Best Supporting Actress award went to Regina King for her work in the film “If Beale Street Could Talk” and the Best Supporting Actor award went to Mahershala Ali with his work in the “Green Book.”
The Best Costume Design went to the movie Black Panther and the award was given to Ruth E. Carter. The film also won two other awards including Best Production Design and Best Original Score. Other categories included Best Makeup and Hairstyling which went to went to Vice, Best Documentary Feature which went to Free Solo and Best Original Song which went to “Shallow” by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.
These awards mean a lot to those who achieve them, and both the films Bohemian Rhapsody and Black Panther were profitable in their awards.
