Green Book, the true story about a friendship between an African-American pianist and a white bouncer touring the Deep South in the early 1960s, won the best picture Oscar and two others: best original screenplay and best supporting actor (Mahershala Ali).

The top acting awards went to Rami Malek, who played Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, and Olivia Colman, who played Britain's Queen Anne in The Favourite. Alfonso Cuaron won best director for his film Roma.

This was the first Oscars show in 30 years to not have a host. Comedian Kevin Hart stepped down in December after controversy erupted over some of his old social-media posts.
