The Norwich-native also acknowledged her competition from A Star Is Born as she as she said ‘Ooh Lady Gaga!’ and blew a kiss her direction.

The actress – who will be portraying royalty again by playing Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown later this year – gave the Born This Way hitmaker a kiss on the cheek shortly after walking offstage.

Colman also beat out Melissa McCarthy who starred in Can You Ever Forgive Me? and Roma’s Yalitza Aparicio.

Many considered Olivia’s speech the high point of the night as she hit the podium and began by saying: ‘It’s genuinely quite stressful. This is hilarious. I got an Oscar.

‘I have to thank lots of people. Yorgos [Lanthimos], my best director and the best film with Emma [Stone] and Rachel [Weisz], the two loveliest women to fall in love with and go to work with every day. You can imagine it wasn’t a hardship.’   

Colman also had one of the best reactions of the night as she covered up her mouth with both hands in shock when her name was announced. 

She was then showered with kisses from husband Ed Sinclair before co-star Emma Stone gave her a big kiss on the cheek.

Lastly director of The Favourite,  Yorgos Lanthimos, grinned from ear-to-ear as he kneeled next to her and put his hands on her knees.

Green Book has been marred in controversy but that did not stop the film from earning the top honor of the night beating out favorites Roma and Black Panther.

The rest of the field included: A Star Is Born, BlacKkKlansmanVice, The Favourite, and Bohemian Rhapsody.

Just before that magical moment; Rami Malek won Best Actor for his portrayal of legendary frontman Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody.

The 37-year-old actor earned his first ever Academy Award and happened to have one of the most emotional speeches of the night at the event in Los Angeles on Sunday.  

The talented actor made sure to praise the iconic British singer/songwriter – real name Farrokh Bulsara – as he said: ‘We made a film about a gay man, an immigrant who lived his life unapologetically as himself.

‘We’re longing for stories like this.’

Lady Gaga, 32, won her first ever Academy Award in the Best Original Song category for hit track Shallow from A Star Is Born.

She gave a passionate speech as she said: ‘I’ve worked hard for a long time, and it’s not about, you know, it’s not about winning. But what it’s about is not giving up. If you have a dream, fight for it.’ 

Earlier in the night Mahershala Ali proved he was no one hit wonder just two years after he won Best Supporting Actor for Moonlight back in 2017. 

The 45-year-old actor won the same award for the second time in his career for his role in Green Book at the 2019 Oscars on Sunday night.

Mahershala got emotional as he dedicated the honor to his grandmother for ‘telling me that if at first I don’t succeed, try, try again. I can do anything I put my mind to.’ 

The first person the True Detective star thanked was the man he portrayed in the Peter Farrelly film; Dr. Don Shirley.

This came after Regina King took home the very first award of the night.  The 48-year-old star earned Best Supporting Actress for her role in If Beale Street Could Talk.

Black Panther won two early awards as they earned the Best Costume Design and Best Production Design trophies.

Bohemian Rhapsody swept the audio awards as they won Sound Editing and Sound Mixing. They kept the wins coming as the Queen biopic also earned Best Film Editing. 

The star-studded event is being held at The Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

After the opening credits, Saturday Night Live alums Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler hit the stage for a hilarious opening monologue segment as there is no actual host this year. 

This is the first time the show has gone without a host in 30 years as Kevin Hart famously stepped down after some of his old controversial tweets were unearthed. 

The three went on to present the Best Supporting Actress Award. 

The second award of the night – Best Documentary – was given to Free Solo which is about a professional rock climber named Alex Honnold.

It might be the gold standard of award shows, but with falling viewing figures, The Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences have made some major changes for this year’s Oscars ceremony. 

These range from skipping a host – after Kevin Hart stepped down – to recruiting  ‘highly recognized talent from various walks of life’ to present the eight nominees for Best Picture, a role usually reserved for actors.

Those talents include anti-Trump chef and restaurateur Jose Andres, Daily Show host Trevor Noah and civil rights leader and Georgia congressman John Lewis and the woman who many consider to be the greatest athlete of all time, Serena Williams

It is not clear which of the nominated films will be presented by these new presenters, who also include: Dana Carvey, Queen Latifah, Tom Morello, and  Amandla Stenberg.

The final three presenters, Barbra Streisand, Diego Luna  and Mike Meyers, will almost certainly be introducing the to films with which they have close ties: A Star is Born, Roma and Bohemian Rhapsody.  

This new line-up of presenters is the latest in a long list of changes made by the Academy this year – many of which have surprised.

It began with the announcement that the Best Song nominees would not be featured in the telecast, a decision that was changed following public uproar.

Next was the decision to discontinue the trend of having the actors who won in each category last year present at the ceremony.

That was revealed by Allison Janney, whose appearance presenting alongside Sam Rockwell at the Golden Globes last month proved to be one of the rare highlights of the unremarkable telecast.

Uproar ensued, and the Academy soon announced that the tradition would continue. 

Next, the Academy opted to eliminate four categories from the telecast – Cinematography, Film Editing, Live Action Short, and Makeup and Hairstyling – and present those awards during the commercial break.

That managed to draw the ire of many members of the Academy, and was protested in an open letter signed by the likes of  Glenn Close, Robert DeNiro, Kerry Washington, Brad Pitt, Halle Berry and hundreds more.

Last week it was announced that the Academy Awards reversed their decision to cut those four categories after the furor. 

It is unclear what other surprises producers may have up their sleeves with just a few days left between now and the 91st Academy Awards ceremony, which will air on ABC this Sunday.
