Oscar Winners: A Split Decision

The race was really tight – a split decision mostly among four films:
Green Book won the biggest award: Best Picture. Mahershala Ali won for Supporting Actor.  And the film also won for Best Original Screenplay.
Bohemian Rhapsody won the most Oscars with four: Rami Malek for Best Actor plus Film Editing, Sound Mixing, and Sound Editing.
Black Panther won three: Original Score, Costume Design, and Production Design.
Roma couldn’t become the first foreign film to win Best Picture,  Instead, it won Best Director, Best Cinematography, and Best Foreign Language Film.
No other major film won more than one.  The Favourite won Best Actress.  BlacKkKlansman took Best Adapted Screenplay, winning Spike Lee his first Oscar.  A Star is Born won for Best Original Song for Lady Gaga and company.  Vice won Makeup and Hairstyling.  If Beale Street Could Talk won for Supporting Actress (Regina King).  RBG lost to Free Solo in the documentary category but that wasn’t a total surprise.
The biggest surprise was the upset in the Best Actress category as Glenn Close was passed over for the seventh time.  Amy Adams lost again.  She has six nominations without a win.  But don’t feel too sorry for them.  Their many nominations put them in rare company.
