Earlier in the evening, Mahershala Ali won the award for the Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Don in Green Book. Green Book also garnered the Oscar award for the Best Original Screenplay.

Viggo who essayed the character of a driver to an African American pianist played by Ali, however, lost to debut nominee Rami Malek. Malek played the role of an iconic vocalist Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody.

Green Book is based on the life of jazz pianist Don Shirley and his security guard/chauffer Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), as the duo toured America.

A major disappointment was how The Favourite only managed to win the Best Actress Award for Olivia Colman, despite being nominated in 9 other categories, a tally equaling Roma's.

Alfonso Cuarón bagged the Oscar for best director at the 91st Academy Awards for his semi-autobiographical film Roma. Cuarón won the Oscars, the second time after winning in 2014 for his space drama Gravity. 

Rami Malek against all odds bagged the Oscar for best actor at the 91st Academy Awards for his role as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody and Olivia Colman won the best actress Oscar for essaying the role of Queen Anne in the movie The Favourite.
