REGINA KING Oscar Winner Best Supporting Actress
The Oscars last night gave out a lot of first! Regina King picked up her very first Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for, If Beale Street Could Talk. Another first, was Ruth E. Carter wining the first Black Woman to win for Best Costume Design for Black Panther.
“Marvel may have created the first black superhero, but through costume design, we turned him into an AFRICAN KING.” Ruth E. Carter
Another first, went to Hannah Beachler who made history as the first African American women to win an Oscar for Best Production Design for Black Panther.
A high and low for, Spike Lee, who won for Best Adapted Screenplay for BlacKkKlanseman, but has yet to win for Best Director or Best Picture.
A huge Oscar miss, Actress Glenn Close in the “the WIFE” on her 7th Oscar nomination loss, which pulled on all of our heartstrings, We love you. The win for lead Actress went to Olivia Colman in “The Favourite”.
Other highlights of the evening including the many wins for Bohemian Rhapsody and ROMA. Bohemian Rhapsody gave us Lead Actor Winner, Rami Malek and “Roma” gave us Alfonso Cuarón Oscar winner for Best Director.
Another first Oscar win went to Mahershala Ali, the first African American to Win Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Green Book. Green Book also took home an Oscar for the Best Motion Picture for the night, beating out 7 other nominations.
Lady Gaga took home her first Oscar win for Best Original Song, “Shallow” from “A Star is Born ” Music and Lyric by Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.
Best Animated short went Domee Shi and Becky Neiman-Cobb for BAO, the Oscar missed talented Animators Andrew Chesworth and Bobby Pontillas for One Small Step, the youngest animators nominated since the launch of their very own animation studio Taikos. But, we are hopeful that this will spearhead more resounding creativity from such a talented group most notable for the last decade of animations movies including RIO, Frozen, Wreck it Ralph, Moana and more.
Overall, our favorite part of the night was the no annoying Oscar host and respective jokes. Can we do this every year? We are very OK with sacrificial Artificial Intelligence doing the announcements, they do not own a Twitter account.
Now for the moment, we have all been waiting for our Best Dressed!
