"Green Book," a controversial film about the civil rights era that became a crowd pleaser with moviegoers, was named Best Picture of 2018 at the 91st annual Academy Awards. The ceremony, telecast live by ABC, was held at the Dolby Center in Hollywood.

Based on a true story and set in the year 1962, the film stars Viggo Mortensen as Tony "The Lip" Vallelonga, an Italian-American bouncer from New York City. He temporarily serves as a chauffeur and bodyguard for the African-American pianist Dr. Don Shirley (portrayed by Mahershala Ali). A friendship develops between the two dissimilar characters during a road trip through the segregated South.

For his performance, Ali won his second Best Supporting Actor Oscar in three years (the first was for the 2016 Best Picture winner "Moonlight"). "Green Book" also won the award for Best Original Screenplay. The film was directed by Peter Farrelly (pictured below center), previously known for such sophomoric comedies as "Dumb and Dumber" (1994) and "There's Something About Mary" (1998).

The picture has drawn criticism for alleged inaccuracies about the relationship between Vallelonga and Dr. Shirley. In addition, some prominent African-Americans have been critical of Mortensen's character as a "white savior" in the film.

One of the executive producers of "Green Book" is the black actress Octavia Spencer, who won a 2011 Best Supporting Actress Oscar for "The Help." She was not eligible for a Best Picture Oscar this year, however.

For only the second time since the Best Picture category was expanded in 2009 to more than five nominees and as many as 10, every nominated film won at least won Oscar. The final tally: "Bohemian Rhapsody" (4), "Black Panther" (3), "Green Book" (3), "Roma" (3), "BlacKkKlansman" (1), "The Favourite" (1), "A Star Is Born" (1) and "Vice" (1).

All of the nominated films at the 87th Academy Awards in 2015, won at least one Oscar.

There also were a couple of dubious career developments. Glenn Close, considered the favorite in the Best Actress race for her performance in "The Wife," lost to the veteran British star Olivia Colman. As a result, Close is now 0-for-7 at the Oscars, making her the actress with the most nominations  without ever winning an award. 

Meanwhile, Amy Adams lost in the Best Supporting Actress category. She is now 0-for-6 and joins Deborah Kerr and Thelma Ritter for the second-most nominations without a win. 

And the great American songwriter Diane Warren is now 0-for-10 in Best Original Song nominations.

I wonder if it will be for Black Panther?

Consider me chagrined and gobsmacked that they actually had her there to introduce BlackKklansman. And it was a good intro, too.

Yeah, one would have expected her to introduce "A Star Is Born."

Some notes on the 91st Academy Awards ceremony, which ran just under three-and-a-half hours -- a bit longer than the two-hour and 10-minute running time of the Best Picture winner, "Green Book." 

1. Question of the Day: Which of these actresses will receive an honorary Oscar first?

Image result for amy adams glenn close

2. #OscarsSoBlack: It was a historic Academy Awards night for people of  color. Spike Lee earned his first competitive award for his movie "BlacKkKlansman" in the Best Adapted Screenplay category. The supporting acting awards went to Mahershala Ali for "Green Book" and Regina King for "If Beale Street Could Talk." 

Ruth E. Carter (pictured below left) received the Best Costume Design Oscar for her contributions to the 2018 blockbuster hit "Black Panther." She became the first African-American winner in the category since it was created in 1949. 

Another "Black Panther" contributor, Hannah Beachler (pictured below right), shared the Production Design award with set decorator Jay Hart. She became the first black winner of the award since the first-ever Oscars were handed out in 1929.

3. A "Driving Miss Daisy" flashback?: The irrepressible and opinionated Lee (he's the one dressed in purple) left his seat and tried to walk out of the Dolby Theater when "Green Book" was announced as the Best Picture of 2018. "I'm snakebit," he later told reporters. "I mean, every time someone's driving somebody, I lose."

4. Twice as nice: Ali's second Academy Award win for Best Supporting Actor makes him only the second African-American to win multiple competitive acting Oscars. The first was Denzel Washington in 2002. Ali also joined the following actors who won at least two supporting role Oscars: Walter Brennan (3), Anthony Quinn, Peter Ustinov, Jason Robards, Melvyn Douglas, Sir Michael Caine and Christoph Waltz.

5. Overcoming the odds: Regina King's Oscar for Best Supporting Actress defied recent awards season trends. She became only the second person to win the category without receiving nominations at the Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA awards. The person who did it first? Marcia Gay Harden, who won the 2000 Supporting Actress Oscar.

6. The Three Amigos Ride Again: Alfonso Cuarón's Best Director win for the Spanish-language film "Roma" was the fifth time in six years that the award went to a Mexican-born filmmaker. Cuarón received the honor for the 2013 space disaster film "Gravity." His friend Alejandro G. Iñárritu won back-to-back Oscars for the 2014 comedy/drama "Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)" and the 2015 historical drama "The Revenant." Their mutual friend Guillermo del Toro earned the award last year for his 2017 film "The Shape of Water."

Cuarón has never won the Best Picture Oscar. Iñárritu won for "Birdman," while Del Toro triumphed with "The Shape of Water." 

"Roma" was named Best Foreign-Language Film, making it the first entrant from Mexico to win the prestigious Oscar. No film has ever won that award and the Oscar for Best Picture.

7. OscarsSoBlackandWhite: Cuarón's other Oscar win was for his cinematography in "Roma." It was the first Oscar awarded to a primarily black-and-white film since "Schindler's List" prevailed 25 years ago.

8. Why Olivia Colman's Oscar win was a bad sign for "The Favourite": It's been 14 years since a recipient of the Best Actress award also appeared in the Best Picture winner. The last time it happened: February 27, 2005, when Hilary Swank won for "Million Dollar Baby."

9. An international star is born: Be prepared to hear a lot more about Colman from now on. She's well-known, of course, in the United Kingdom. But her Oscar win is almost certain to cement her status as an international star. Later this year, she will take over the role of Queen Elizabeth II in the Netflix streaming series "The Crown." Claire Foy, who is 11 years younger than the 45-year-old Colman, portrayed Elizabeth in the first two seasons of "The Crown." Foy won a Primetime Emmy for her work during Season 2. Don't be surprised if Colman takes home an Emmy at some point.

10. Good news for the creative team behind the 2060 remake of "A Star Is Born": The last two versions won Academy Awards for Best Original Song.

11. Best line of the night: Tina Fey (before presenting the Best Supporting Actress award with Maya Rudolph and Amy Poehler): "We are not your hosts, but we're gonna stand here a little too long so that the people who get USA Today tomorrow will think that we hosted."

12. Worst acceptance speech: A three-way tie for Best Makeup and Hairstyling winners Greg Cannom, Kate Biscoe, and Patricia Dehaney of "Vice." They just never had their act together onstage. Still, their contributions to the movie were magical.

13. Best sports update: Samuel L. Jackson, who presented the Original and Adapted Screenplay awards with his "Captain Marvel" co-star Brie Larson, had a surprise for nominee Spike Lee. The actor announced that Lee's beloved New York Knicks had snapped their 18-game home-losing streak with a 130 to 118 victory over the San Antonio Spurs. The moment was reminiscent of the 1976 Oscars when Best Film Editing co-presenter Elliott Gould announced the score of the NCAA College Basketball Final between undefeated Indiana and Michigan (he said, "Indiana 86-68" as actress Isabelle Adjani began opening the envelope).

14. Among those missing in action from the In Memoriam segment:

15. In case you were wondering: Yes, that indeed was the actress Jaime Ray Newman who shared the Oscar for Best Live-Action Short. Longtime viewers of the ABC daytime drama "General Hospital" will remember her as Kristina Cassadine from 2002 to 2003. She also has appeared in numerous other television series, including "Veronica Mars," "Drop Dead Diva," "Bates Motel," "The Punisher," "The Magicians" and "Midnight Texas." Newman and her director husband Guy Nattiv won the Oscar for the short "Skin," a racially tinged drama.

16. A trivia question: What pop song links these newly minted Oscar winners? (The answer is below)

Image result for lady gaga rami malek

Answer: It's the 1984 Queen hit "Radio Ga Ga." The singer Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta borrowed it for her stage name, Lady Gaga. Meanwhile Rami Malek, who won a Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Queen's tragic frontman Freddie Mercury, lip syncs to "Radio Ga Ga" in the movie "Bohemian Rhapsody,"

17. Mark your calendars: The 92nd annual Academy Awards will be held on Sunday, February 9, 2020. That's the earliest date for the Oscars in history.

Looking at a couple suites (boxofficemojo, rotten tomatoes,etc() I was taken back that ROMA hasn't even grossed $1m. domestically yet? & now, not winning Hollywoods Highest Honor, it may not get a huge nation wide release?

I don't make Oscar predictions. It's more interesting to look at trends and history -- and follow the overall process that leads up to the Academy Awards.

Colman's win wasn't that much of a surprise when you consider that the Best Actress Oscar usually goes to the person who won the Best Actress BAFTA award. Colman won the BAFTA two weeks ago, so she was a serious threat.

Not really. It might be a different story if I bet on awards shows, but I don't.

Ethan and Joel Coen were nominated for four Oscars for "No Country for Old Men" (2007) and won three of them: Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.

Academy Voters Don’t Watch The Animated Features They Vote On

— And @TheAcademy Is Fine With That

".....The following categories require that Academy voters view all the nominated films in a category before voting:

  • Animated Short Film
  • Live Action Short Film
  • Documentary Short Subject
  • Documentary Feature
  • Foreign Language Film Award

That’s every film award category, in fact, except for Best Picture and Best Animated Feature.

So the question is, why doesn’t the animated feature award follow the rules that have been established for the majority of the other film awards?

..... it’s time for the animation world to demand that the Academy begins treating animation with the respect it deserves. At the very least, filmmakers deserve to have their hard work viewed by the people who are judging their work.

Anything less than that is an insult to the animation community. ....

They should be required to view films nominated in every category. But there's no way to enforce that, aside from forcing them to go to screenings which would go over like a lead balloon....

In #WomanatWar, A choir instructor sabotages powerlines to keep the Chinese from investing in Iceland's heavy industry while a 3-piece band and Ukrainian vocal trio repeatedly appear out of nowhere. Soberer and droller than it sounds, but I don't think it'll stop global warming.

#GasparNoe's punishing French dance rehearsal freakout #Climax has its extreme pleasures. But while I guess something like this could happen, I had some trouble buying that even the worst acid could cause so much mayhem. I base that on, um, extensive research. In a former life.

#TheWeddingGuest seems to be a terrorist thriller, then an India travelogue, abruptly film noir and finally a happy/sad sexy romance. Naturalistically shot and discursively edited, it insists on frustrating all genre expectations - and is never less than intriguing for that.
