“Bohemian Rhapsody” led the 91st Academy Awards on Sunday, taking home four awards in the actor, film editing, sound mixing, and sound editing categories.
The evening also delivered a surprise win for “Green Book,” which took home the Oscar for best picture, defeating strong competition from “Roma,” “A Star is Born” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
For the first time in 30 years, there was no host to usher the audience from category to category. The show, instead, started with concert-like performance by Adam Lambert and the band Queen and segued into a pseudo monologue featuring Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph.
In addition to a foreign language film nod, “Roma” also took home directing and cinematography Oscars for Alfonso Cuaron, while “Black Panther” surprised with wins in production design, costume design, and original score.
On the acting side, Olivia Colman won for actress, upsetting a competitive field that included Yalitza Aparicio, Melissa McCarthy, Lady Gaga, and frontrunner Glenn Close. Close had previously won the Golden Globe and SAG Award for her role in “The Wife,” so all eyes were on her to see if she could pull in her first win after seven nominations. As expected, “Bohemian Rhapsody” star Rami Malek won for actor.
A star-studded list of presenters also took to the stage, including chef Jose Andres, Dana Carvey, Queen Latifah, congressman John Lewis, Diego Luna, Tom Morello, Mike Myers, Trevor Noah, Amandla Stenberg, Barbra Streisand, and Serena Williams.
The evening also featured musical performances by Queen and Adam Lambert, as well as Jennifer Hudson, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, and Bette Midler.
The awards ceremony itself celebrated diversity and inclusivity in the breadth of winners who took home the coveted statuette.
For the first time awards for best costuming and best production went to African American nominees. Ruth Carter took home the Oscar for best costuming for her work on “Black Panther,” and Hannah Beachler for production design, also for her work on the super hero film.
Alfonso Cuaron’s “Roma” won best foreign film, marking the first time a Mexican film has ever won in the category.
Spike Lee was greeted with a standing ovation as the film industry veteran took the stage to claim his first Oscar for best adapted screenplay for his work on “BlacKkKlansman.” Lee has previously been nominated for best documentary feature in 1998 for “4 Little Girls” and best original screenplay in 1990 for “Do the Right Thing.” He received an honorary Oscar in 2016 for his directorial accomplishments. Here’s who won cinema’s biggest awards this year.
