OSCARS Winners 2019

Here’s what happened backstage at the Oscars:

Lady Gaga broke down after winning an Oscar for best original song.

Rami Malek wins best actor: “Part of my story is being written right now”

Rami Malek, who played Freddie Mercury, won best actor for Bohemian Rhapsody.

Malek is just the second actor of Arab descent nominated for an Oscar, after Lawrence of Arabia star Omar Sharif. Malek is the first to win.

He took a moment to thank Queen and acknowledged the extraordinary story of Mercury’s life.

“The fact that I’m celebrating him and this story with you tonight is proof that we’re longing for stories like this,” Malek said.

“I am the son of immigrants from Egypt, a first-generation American. And part of my story is being written right now. And I could not be more grateful to each and every one of you, and everyone who believed in me for this moment. It’s something I will treasure for the rest of my life.” Bohemian Rhapsody won 4 Oscars, but the film’s director wasn’t mentioned

Bohemian Rhapsody won four Oscars tonight, but there was no mention of the film’s director Bryan Singer.

Here’s why: Singer was fired from the project just weeks before the completion of filming. Notably, none of the Rhapsody winners thanked Singer, who was accused of sexual abuse in January, allegations that the filmmaker has denied.

Green Book accepted their best picture award.

Here’s how the show wrapped up without a host

Academy Award winner Julia Roberts abruptly wrapped up the Oscars after the producers of Green Book accepted their best picture award.

“Well, apparently, that wraps up the 91st Academy Awards,” she said. “I would like to say congratulations to all the nominees and winners. And good night to Bradley Cooper’s mother and my children. And thank you for watching,” Roberts added.

And with that, the credits rolled and the show was over.
