Olivia Colman Beats Glenn Close For Best Actress Oscar In Massive Upset

After Carter's victory, another history-making moment took place when "Black Panther" production designer, Hannah Beachler along with set decorator Jay Hart, also won the Oscar. End Of Sentence was named best documentary short subject. "I've got an Oscar". Her effortlessly elegant design was truly a sight to see.

So you can understand our conflicting emotions when Frances McDormand read out Olivia's name as the Best Actress victor.

The film, directed by Peter Farrelly and said to be based on a true story, has faced criticism since its release over the veracity of its story and the manner in which it handles issues of race.

Bohemian Rhapsody was the most awarded film at the ceremony, with prizes for Malek, film editing, sound mixing and sound editing. Cuaron and his "Three Amigos" countrymen - Alejandro Inarritu and Guillermo del Toro, who presented Cuaron with best picture - will have had a stranglehold on the category, winning five of the last six years.

He collected the best adapted screenplay gong for BlacKkKlansman from Samuel L. Jackson and jumped into his arms on stage in celebration. Industry insiders thought that she was a shoo-in to win, even though A Star Is Born fans wanted Lady Gaga to pick up the Oscar. "And any little girl who is practicing their speech on the telly, you never know".

But all of it was to try and support a career in acting. And if you're not then kind of well-done, but I sort of hope you are.

Partially shot at the National Trust property in Knole park in Sevenoaks, Yorgos Lanthimos's film also picked up gongs for best British film, costume design, original screenplay, make-up and hair and production design a year ago.

Instead the film, about literary forger Lee Israel, left empty handed.

The biggest surprise of the night, was in the best actress category.

Colman spoke directly to Close.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper Warner Bros.

It wasn't just Lee's grandma who came in for special praise.

The best picture honours were done by Julia Roberts.
