Didn’t catch the full ceremony last night? Not to worry. Here is a rundown of the highlights of the 2019 Oscars.

Spike Lee Finally Wins an Oscar

Spike Lee finally receives an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay and looks more excited than a child at Christmas when his name is called.

Olivia Coleman’s Charming Acceptance Speech

Olivia Coleman was totally overwhelmed when she had to give a speech for her Best Actress Award. Watching the former Peep Show star blow a raspberry when told to wrap her speech up is gold.

A Netflix Film Finally Got Industry Recognition

It’s no secret that the film industry is unwelcoming to original films from streaming platforms. Cannes even banned Netflix from participating in the festival last year. Mexican film Roma picked up multiple awards indicating that the Academy favors epic direction over trendy snobbery.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper Perform “Shallow”

There many superb performances at last night’s ceremony but best of all has got to be Oscar-winning Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s performance of “Shallow” from their movie.

Rami Malik Wins Another Award For Bohemian Rhapsody

Rami Malek has won a Golden Globe, a BAFTA and a SAGA for his incredible performance as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. Now, he has added an Oscar to his collection and his acceptance speech was as charming and humble as ever.

Melissa McCarthy and Brian Tyree Henry’s Wacky Costumes

Lady Gaga may have dressed in diamonds but this The Favourite and Mary Poppins inspired look takes the cake.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga looked sensational as always. To top off her look, the singer song-writer wore a 128 carat Tiffany’s diamond, one of the biggest in the world. The diamond was previously worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s.
