The Favourite scoops just one Oscar

The Favourite scoops just one Oscar

The actress won the Oscars trophy for Best Actress for her performance as the eccentric, queer Queen Anne in "The Favourite".

"It's genuinely quite stressful!" she said of her unexpected win.

After receiving the Oscar from two of last year's acting winners, Sam Rockwell and Frances McDormand, Colman profusely thanked Lanthimos, as well as Stone and Rachel Weisz, whom she called "the two loveliest women in the world to fall in love with".

Olivia Colman is the victor of the best actress Academy Award for "The Favourite".

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. "This is hilarious. I got an Oscar", said Colman during a amusing and heartfelt speech. The film won three other Academy Awards.

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. In the middle of thank yous, however, she paused to address Glenn Close directly.

Completing her look, the Enchanted actress painted her sexy pout in a glossy light red shade.

Jack Parlett also tweeted about how he will forever cherish the memory of having a drunken smoke with Colman outside of his student union and ending up at a chip van with her. "It's the highest honor you can get for what we do, and so that, in itself is... it's just a great honor". "You can imagine. This wasn't a hard job".

Colman met her future husband Ed Sinclair while studying at Cambridge.

The 2019 Oscars have already gone down as the most inclusive year yet, with nominated films like "Black Panther" and "Roma" bringing a more diverse group of actors to the show, and winners like Spike Lee and Rami Malek breaking boundaries.

Giving a special shout out to Gaga, she finished: "Fox, everybody, the cast and crew, Sam thank you... thank you so much". But I sort of hope you are. And Colman proved last night that her style was nothing short of royalty, hitting the carpet in forest green Prada. "I've worked hard for a long time, and it's not about winning".
