LOS ANGELES-Alfonso Cuaron's "Roma" took home two early Oscars on Sunday at an Academy Awards ceremony held without a host but filled with powerhouse music performances. The movie's dialogue is in Spanish and Mixtec. The biggest was Cuaron's win for Best Director, which was expected since he'd also won that award at the Golden Globes. The Mexican actress is the first indigenous woman to be nominated for Best Actress at the Academy Awards.
Muscat: To say that the past few months have been transformative for Roma's lead actress Yalitza Aparicio would be an understatement. The Favourite etc. If you watched the ceremony but are yet to watch the wonderful films that won, here's where you can stream these films online and watch them today.
Their appearance, with singer Adam Lambert, made them the first rock band ever to open the Academy Awards and celebrated the global success of best picture nominee "Bohemian Rhapsody", about the British band and its late frontman, Freddie Mercury. It's also the first film from Netflix to earn a Best Picture nomination.
LeBron James questions Lakers' sense of urgency after loss to Pelicans
The Pelicans closed the quarter strong again, outscoring the Lakers 12-3 over the final four minutes to take a 69-57 lead into the break, and Los Angeles never got back within single digits.
Cuarón's Best Director honor comes five years after he previously won in the category for Gravity.
While we may still have to wait to catch the Best Picture-winning film Green Book and Olivia Colman's Best Actress winning film The Favourite to release on online streaming platforms, these five films could surely make you rejoice their wins at the Oscars this year. Cuaron shot his own film when frequent collaborator Emmanuel "Chivo" Lubezki wasn't available and tonight noted, "It's very well known that Billy Wilder had in his office a sign that said 'What would Lubitsch have done?' For me it was 'What would Chivo have done?'"
