“Green Book” Takes Home Top Honor at the 2019 Oscars

This year’s Oscars were one bumpy ride, so it’s only fitting that a segregation-era road trip movie won the biggest honor. Green Book pulled one of the biggest upsets of the nigh and emerged triumphant in the best picture field.

This polarizing buddy comedy was going against several major players, and we didn’t know what is going to happen until the very last moment. Green Book had strong competition in Roma, especially after Netflix spent millions on campaigning in hopes that this Mexican drama will bring them their first Oscar.

Alfonso Cuarón eventually won three awards for this film, but the best picture award wasn’t one of them. Green Book came out victorious in this category, but also won additional two awards – best original screenplay and best supporting actor (Mahershala Ali).

The cast and crew of Bohemian Rhapsody also had a lot to celebrate as the film topped the list of winners with a total of four awards. The Academy’s love for the Freddie Mercury was also shown by the invitation sent ti Queen and Adam Lambert to kick off the telecast by performing the band’s biggest hits.
