The Oscars 2019 have just ceased, and with that comes a series of unexpected wins and twists that will set the tone for the cinematic industry for the rest of the year. Green Book, a film that charts a real-life road trip through the South in the ’60s, won Best Picture despite the controversies surrounding its director and producer — the former came under fire for sexual misconduct while the latter, anti-Muslim sentiments — raising eyebrows across the world. Olivia Colman of The Favourite also won Best Actress, usurping favourite Glenn Close, whose role in The Wife was more than deserving of a win, especially given how the icon has not yet won an Academy Award throughout her prolific career. On the Best Actor front, Rami Malek bags the acclaim after his success at the Golden Globes, BAFTAs and more for the same award thanks to his stellar performance of Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody.
The awards ceremony may have had its ups and downs, but the red carpet was filled with moments that left us starry-eyed. Here’s a recap of our favourite outfits this Oscars 2019.
