Himself - Winner: Best Cinematography/Best Foreign Language Film/Best Director & Nominated: Best Picture:
Thank you. Am I going to get subtitled as well? Thank you, Yalitza. Thank you, Marina. Thank you, Gabriela, Nico, all the cast and crew. I grew up watching foreign language films and learning so much from them and being inspired. Films like the "Citizen Kane," "Jaws," "Rashomon," "The Godfather" and "Breathless." When asked about the Nouvelle Vague about the New Wave, Claude Chabrol said, "There are no waves, there's only the ocean." And I think that the nominees tonight have proven that we are...

Ratings are up! No host, no problem it's A okay! Upsets! Rami surprises Christian, and Olivia surprises Glenn.
"The Oscars" the 91st annual one was much improved and better as with no host for the first time since 1989 things ran smoother, quicker, and each presenter and new stage face was fresh with their own set of jokes and laughs! The music was in top notch form as the opening was music from "Queen", and the highlight and touching intimate moment with love and chemistry was the duet performance of "Shallow"(best original song) from the great Bradley Cooper and stunning Lady Gaga.
Plus this year the awards were not predictable as upsets and surprises were found most shocking was Rami Malek's win for best actor over favorite Christian Bale who was to believable as Dick Cheney, and it was not meant to be for Glenn Close as Olivia Colman upset her for best actress. Yet class acts and category front runners Regina King and Mahershala Ali won both supporting actress and supporting actor for their blunt and outspoken roles of race films.
Social and race films were dominate as the family drama "Roma" won best foreign language film and Alfonso Cuaron won best director, and "Green Book" was the pick for best picture as the true story on friendship and race relations rose to the top. Overall well done "Oscars" an improvement in laughs, and the music was touching and the awards were more spread out with upsets and surprises! Hope this trend continues for "Hollywood's" big shining golden night.
