Oscar 2019: from Rami Malek to Green Book. Here all the winners!

Finally, after months and months of criticism and controversy, last night the Oscar 2019 took place and the most awaited statuettes of the year were handed over. 

While it was two o’clock in the morning in Italy, on the red carpet unrolled in front of the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, the stars and actors we saw and loved at the cinema during 2018 began to arrive.

In addition to expecting the names of the winners, the wait was especially long to find out how the 91st edition of the Oscars would begin, which, after exactly thirty years, did not include a presenter. If you missed all the controversy and wondered why this was not the case, well, after the Academy chose Kevin Hart as the presenter for this year’s edition, the comedian ended up in the middle of a media storm. In the eye of the storm ended up some tweets shared by the actor that insulted (even heavily) the gay community. The controversy became so global that Kevin himself gave up presenting the most anticipated evening in the world of cinema and the Academy did not choose any substitute.

So the lights turn off and… As many had expected, the notes of We Will Rock You, with Brian May, Roger Taylor and Adam Lambert on stage, start and everyone in the room stands up and keeps the time with their hands. Then we move on to We Are The Champions and Freddy Mercury‘s face dominates the screen. We already like these presenterless Oscars so much!

As always, the forerunner is the Best Supporting Actress award, given to the favourite Regina King. From here the first part of the evening proceeds as smooth as oil with Black Panther and Rome begin to take home the first prizes and an immense Jennifer Hudson who sings I’ll Fight from the documentary RBG.

Alfonso Cuarón goes back on stage to retire the statuette for Best Foreign Language Film with a speech of disarming simplicity, a universal speech on inclusiveness. The touching moments continue with Miss Midler interpreting the song The Place Where Lost Things Go from Mary Poppins’ Return, in place of Emily Blunt, who with her husband John Krasinski are, perhaps, the great absentees of the evening.

Mahershala Ali wins the award for Best Supporting Actor, reaching two Oscars out of two (the first won by Moonlight) and reaching Denzel Washington, until now the only African-American actor to win two statuettes.

For the animation, we have two well-deserved Oscars, the first for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and the second for our beloved Bao, of which we have spoken here

And now, the most awaited moment, the duet of the year, Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, hand in hand, go on stage and make us literally dream by singing Shallow. This is the Hollywood we love, this is the Hollywood we want! 

After a series of sluggish speeches, Spike Lee‘s finally shakes up the evening, bringing out topics such as slavery, racial differences, strength and power that can be achieved by being united, all on the same side, the side of the history. 

The first tears also come, and it’s Lady Gaga‘s tears that move us too. But the tears do not stop coming down because it continues with the moment In Memoriam, and here on the screen all the artists who left us this year including Bernardo Bertolucci, Margot Kidder, Burt Reynolds, Stan Lee, Bruno Ganz, and unfortunately many others.

The evening is about to end and after the favorite Rami Malek here’s the twist! Olivia Colman steals the Oscar from Glenn Close’s hands, at the seventh nomination and still no victory, with a hilarious speech to say the least, as much as her performance in The Favourite, which ended with a well-deserved standing ovation.

For Best Director no surprise when Guillermo del Toro reads the name of his friend Alfonso Cuarón, but very amazement for Green Book as Best Film, which if you have not seen you must absolutely recover. 

To say goodnight is a wonderful Julia Roberts, who makes us officially forget the lack of a presenter (I would repeat next year if I were in the Academy). 

P.S. We’re not used to talking about looks and outfits, but we just want to mention one, that of Frances McDormand who asphalts Pharrel’s bermuda shorts by showing up on stage with a pair of yellow Birkenstocks. Frances, we love you!
