The 2019 OSCARS

Raquel Perry, Reporter

The 91st Academy Awards was a huge night for celebration and although there was no host, the award was praised for marking a number of big milestones, such as a remarkable amount of women and people of color achieving historic wins.

In the past, the show has faced a lot of criticism for the lack of diversity in nominees. The Academy has recently been trying to address these issues. In 2018, they invited a group of 928 new members to increase representation of people of color from 13 percent to 16 percent, and women from 28 percent to 31 percent.

Though there was still a big amount of male categories this year, on Sunday night several women not only won Oscars, but became the first of their identity groups to do so, and for the first time ever, people of color won the majority of the awards.

Roma and The Favourite led the most nominations with 1o each on Sunday. However, Greenbook took home Best Picture while Rami Malek and Olivia Colman won big in the best-acting categories.

Other big wins of the night included Alfonso Cuarón for best director, Spike Lee for best adapted screenplay, Mahershala Ali for best supporting actor, Regina King for best supporting actress. The popular Black Panther took home three awards: best costume design, production design and best original score.
