Regina King wearing Oscar de la Renta.

Regina King’s won Best Supporting Actress for If Beale Street Could Talk . Her speech was priceless – “I am an example of what it looks like when support and love is poured into someone” – to her mother, who was looking on from the front row so proudly.

A night filled with all sorts of performance- Queen put on an wonderful performance with original members, guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor, fronted by singer Adam Lambert. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper also performed Shallows from A Star Is Born and sent the audience wild.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper certainly delivered a show with their emotionally performance of Shallow from A Star Is Born.

Having been nominated for an Oscar seven times, giving her the record of being the most nominated living person never to win an Oscar. “This is hilarious! I’ve got an Oscar!”- Olivia Colman said.

Another highlight of the night was Spike Lee. Who finally won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay and also made a speech and concluded with an exhortation that “The 2020 Presidential election is around the corner. Let’s all do the right thing!”

Also, Ruth E Carter was the first African American to win the Oscar for costume design for Black Panther and Hannah Beachler (who won with Jay Hart) the first to take the production design prize, for the same film. “I did my best and my best is good enough,” said Beachler.
