The 2019 Academy Awards took place last night (February 24, 2019) at the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood and Highland Center.
The ceremony, which was host-free for the first time in 20 years, brought out a diverse bunch of A-listers to announce each category.
Bohemian Rhapsody ended the night with the most Oscar wins, with four, followed by Black Panther, Green Book and Roma with three, each.
Rami Malek gave one of the most heartfelt speeches of the night.
And gave Lucy Boynton the kiss of the night.
While A Star Is Born lost out in the acting categories, it did win Best Song for “Shallow.”
There were a few upsets. Green Book‘s win over Netflix’s Roma a big one, but even more shocking was The Favourite‘s Olivia Colman beating out 7-time Oscar nominee Glenn Close for the Best Actress prize.
Like all of us, Olivia Coleman was SHOCKED that she won Best Actress. I’m sure Glenn Close was as well.
Spike Lee was NOT happy (unlike earlier when he won his first Oscar) when Green Book won Best Picture.
Shortly after Green Book was announced the winner, the director walked toward the back of the auditorium, according to a reporter for Deadline.
He eventually got back to his seat and got into what appeared to be an intense conversation with the writer Jordan Peele.
The report said that Lee turned his back to the stage during the speech.
Spike Lee was visibly angry when "Green Book" was announced as the winner of best picture at the Oscars, waving his arms in disgust and appearing to try to storm out of the Dolby Theatre before he was stopped at the doors. He returned to his seat when the speeches were over.

Jordan Peele, who was sitting behind Lee, also declined to applaud the winner, as did others in the room.
