British actress Olivia Colman was among the winners at last night's Oscars ceremony (February 24), while Green Book was the surprise Best Picture winner.
Colman won Best Actress for her role in The Favourite, and gave the audience a funny and tearful speech.
Green Book won three trophies in total, including best picture, which was widely tipped to go to Netflix film Roma.
Holding back tears, Colman said on stage after her win: "It's genuinely quite stressful. This is hilarious. I've got an Oscar!"
She is the first British woman to win the award since Kate Winslet in 2009, and she added: "Any little girl who's practising their speech on the telly - you never know!" Shen then ended her speech by blowing a raspberry, as you do.
Rami Malek said of his win: "I think about what it would have been like to tell little bubba Rami that one day this might happen to him, and I think his curly-haired little mind would have been blown.
"That kid was struggling with his identity, trying to figure himself out, and to anyone struggling and trying to discover their voice - listen, we made a film about a gay man, an immigrant, who lived his life unapologetically himself.
"And the fact I'm celebrating him and this story with you tonight is proof that we're longing for stories like this."
Mahershala Ali won his second Best Supporting Actor Oscar in three years. After winning for Moonlight in 2017, he now adds another for playing jazz pianist Don Shirley in Green Book.
"Trying to capture his essence pushed me to my ends, which was a reflection of the person he was and the life that he lived," Ali said.
Regina King won Best Supporting Actress for If Beale Street Could Talk. She said: "I'm an example of what it looks like when support and love are poured into someone - mom, I love you so much."
Sadly, British stars Richard E Grant, Rachel Weisz and Christian Bale lost out on the acting awards, but Brits Paul Lambert and Tristan Myles shared the prize for Best Visual Effects with two American colleagues for First Man, and key crew members on Bohemian Rhapsody won the two sound awards: John Warhurst and Nina Hartstone for Best Sound Editing, and Paul Massey, Tim Cavagin and John Casali for Sound Mixing.
