Olivia Colman, Lady Gaga Among 2019 Oscar Winners

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

Olivia Colman has said she will be bringing her Oscar statuette to bed with her.

After all, she was up against Lady Gaga, whose performance in A Star Is Born has always been an awards contender heavyweight, and Glenn Close, whose nomination for The Wife was widely seen as an opportunity for the storied actress to finally take out an Oscar. 'I have to thank lots of people.

Rachel Weisz said it best when she declared "GAY RIGHTS!"

She said: "I love you all".

Between her upcoming role as Queen Elizabeth in The Crown and her Queen Anne portrayal in last night's Oscar-nominated The Favourite, the British actress has made her mark on Hollywood.

Colman, who played Queen Anne, snatched a surprise win over front-runner Glenn Close, who dominated trophies throughout the award season and was favored by many to win for "The Wife".

Patriots owner Robert Kraft charged with soliciting prostitutes
Kraft purchased the Patriots in 1994 for $175 million and is also the owner of the New England Revolution and the Kraft Group . A spokesman for the Patriots owner is quoted as saying: "We categorically deny that Mr Kraft engaged in any illegal activity".

Regina King, who won the award for best supporting actress for her dynamic, captivating performance in "If Beale Street Could Talk", also delivered a heartwarming speech at the top of the show. But she never seemed less than thrilled and shocked at her win, telling her kids at home that she hoped they were watching because "this is not going to happen again!" Well, she did describe her Oscars win as "hilarious" and tear up while kissing her award - so we don't dispute that at all.

Who was the best dressed at the Oscars 2019? And Spike Lee gave a fiery political speech after his BlacKkKlansman won for best adapted screenplay - the director's first Oscar. She was up against Yalitza Aparicio, Glenn Close, Melissa McCarthy and Lady Gaga in the category for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

To those familiar with British Television, Olivia Colman will be a familiar face, but she was an actress who was known by her face and not by her name, like a plethora of brilliant character actors.

The Favourite has proved to be a bit of an.erm.favourite with the Academy Award judging panel, with a total of 10 nominations, including Best Picture.

Some felt the award was recognition for Peep Show as much as it was for Colman.

A Star is Born, starring queer icon Lady Gaga, took home best original song for "Shallow", which Gaga performed at the ceremony with Bradley Cooper. But she is naive and easily fooled, even kept out of the loop - something that Colman portrays with astonishing might. "This has been a long time coming", she said, laughing unabashedly.
