2019 Oscars: All You Want To Know

A Potpourri of Vestiges Feature

The Oscars have finally been announced. Unlike every year this year there was no official host. 

As opposed to the popular opinion the Oscar for Best Picture went to Peter Farrelly's Green Book. The Award was announced by Julia Roberts.

And the Oscar for Best Directing went to Alfonso Cuarón for Roma. History was created as he won won both the Best Directing and Best Cinematography Oscars on the same night. And the icing on the cake was that the last year winner and his fellow Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro presented with the Best Directing Oscar. Roma also won the Oscar for the Best Foreign Film.

The Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role went to Olivia Colman for The Favourite with Rami Malek grabbing the Best Actor Oscar in a Leading Role.

The Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay went to the one and only Spike Lee (who shard it with Charlie Wachtel, David Rabinowitz, and Kevin Willmott) for BlacKkKlansman. Samuel Jackson catching a jumping Spike Lee in his arms has to be a special moment in Oscar history. Also, Lee's short speech was quite moving (with everyone on their feet in respect to the legendary filmmaker) and the reference to Do the Right Thing was a real icing on the cake.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper performing their Oscar nominated song 'Shallow' from A Star is Born was another major highlight. Lady Gaga also won as Oscar for the same song.
