Winners and losers at the 2019 Oscars

Emotions run high on Hollywood’s big night

Move over, Disney.

When Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won the Oscar for best animated feature on Feb. 24, it bumped the Walt Disney Company out of a spot it has dominated for 10 of the last 11 years.

That win for Sony Pictures Entertainment wasn’t the only upset of the night.

When The Green Book won for best picture, American director Spike Lee wasn’t too happy about it.

According to Associated Press reporter Andrew Dalton, Lee started “waving his arms in disgust” and tried to storm out of the theatre.

Some have criticized The Green Book because a white person is the main character in a movie about discrimination against black people.

Although Lee’s movie BlackKklansman didn’t win best picture, it did win the trophy for best adapted screenplay.

Despite Lee’s frustration, there were signs that the #OscarsSoWhite campaign might finally be having an impact.

The campaign started in 2015 as a way to make the Oscars more inclusive.

For the first time ever, African Americans were winners in the costume and production design categories.

Ruth E. Carter and Hannah Beachler won those awards for their work on Black Panther.

Tweet from Hannah Beachler says Y'all! So humbled and blessed. Thank you all for continuing to lift up this film, and to lift me up!!!

Olivia Colman’s win for actress in a leading role for The Favourite was another major upset of the evening.

The British actress even apologized to fellow nominees Glenn Close and Lady Gaga for denying them the prize.

Colman also had some words of advice for kids who dream of a career in the movies:

Tweet from The Academy says Well said, Olivia next to a quote: Any little girl who's practising their speech on the telly... you never know! Olivia Colman.

While she didn’t win in the best lead actress category, Lady Gaga won the internet when she performed a passionate duet with Bradley Cooper.

Sitting side by side at a piano, the duo sang Shallow from A Star Is Born.

Lady Gaga ended up going home with the Oscar for original song, along with co-writers Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.

Tweet from Mark Ronson says In our feelings. In shock. In heaven. Photo shows Lady Gaga collapsing to the floor in disbelief.

Toronto director Domee Shi made Canada proud when she won the Oscar for best animated short film.

Bao, which was produced by Pixar Animation Studios, tells the story of a handmade dumpling that comes alive.

The short film was screened in theatres alongside Incredibles 2.

Tweet from The Academy says Well Said Domee next to quote: To all the nerdy girls out there who hide behind their sketchbooks, don't be afraid to tell your stories to the world.
