Oscars 2019 Winners, the Complete List

Tonight was Hollywood's biggest night as all of the Oscars winners were announced, providing plenty of unexpected twists and a few surprises along the way. The awards ceremony was presented live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, CA on ABC.

The Academy Awards went without a host for the first time in thirty years. Many expected a disastrous telecast, though things mostly went without a hitch as one winner after the next was called forth to the stage for their big moment. And after some backlash with the cutting of four categories from the telecast, those same awards were also televised. Host or no host, This year's Oscars were not as disastrous as some were hoping or feared.

Le Monde to republish open letter challenging Cuaron, Coens over Netflix films

Letter criticises ’the privatisation of a work of art’.

France’s Le Monde newspaper is to republish on Saturday (23) an open letter by the French Association of Arthouse Cinemas (Afcae) challenging the decision by Joel and Ethan Coen and Alfonso Cuarón to release their Oscar-nominated features The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs and Roma via Netflix.

The letter adds fuel to an ongoing debate that has divided the French cinema industry and comes amid a flare-up over Netflix’s disruptive model in the UK.

2019 Oscars exclusive interviews: 5 chats with costume and production design nominees for ‘Roma,’ ‘The Favourite,’ and more [Watch]
Gold Derby has conducted exclusive video chats with five of this year’s Oscar nominees for Best Costume Design and Best Production Design over the last few months. How will they do when the winners are announced on Sunday, February 24? Follow the links below to be taken to their full interviews.

Alexandra Byrne (“Mary Queen of Scots”): Costume designer Byrne returned to the Oscar race with this historical drama about the conflict between Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan) and her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie). Byrne’s last film about the famed monarch, “Elizabeth: The Golden Age” (2007), earned her a victory in this category.

Barry Jenkins expected to join tiny group of double directing champs at Spirit Awards

Barry Jenkins expected to join tiny group of double directing champs at Spirit Awards
Barry Jenkins took home his first Independent Spirit Award for Best Director two years ago for “Moonlight,” but it looks like he’ll have to clear some room for another: The “If Beale Street Could Talk” helmer is predicted to win the same prize at Saturday’s show, which would make him just the fifth person to win the category twice.

In the Spirit Awards’ 33-year history, four people have earned a record two Best Director Awards: Joel Coen; Alexander Payne (1999’s “Election”; 2004’s “Sideways”); Ang Lee; and Tom McCarthy (2008’s “The Visitor”; 2015’s “Spotlight”). This means, should Jenkins prevail, he’d had the shortest span — two years — between his two wins.

Hear Gillian Welch, David Rawlings’ New Recording of Oscar-Nominated Song

On cloud 9: Alfonso Cuaron expected to be 9th director to win 2 BAFTA Awards
After becoming the 13th person to win two Directors Guild of America Awards, Alfonso Cuaron is poised to join an even more exclusive group: two-time Best Director BAFTA winners.

The “Roma” director is our odds-on favorite to take home the prize at Sunday’s ceremony, with 31/10 odds over Yorgos Lanthimos (“The Favourite”), Spike Lee (“BlacKkKlansman”), Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”) and Pawel Pawlikowski (“Cold War”). He previously won for his direction of “Gravity” (2013), for which he also won the Oscar.

Only eight people have double Best Director BAFTA Awards, the most wins in the category. The most recent to join this club was Joel Coen, who took home his second statuette for “No Country for Old Men” (2007) to go with his win for “Fargo” (1996).

Following discussions with the Motion Picture Association of America, streaming service, motion picture producer Netflix, now referred to as the 'Seventh Sister" has joined six other major studios in the MPAA, following Netflix films earning 15 Oscar nominations for the 2019 Academy Awards, including Alfonso Cuarón's "Roma" and The Coen Bros.' "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs":

"...'Roma', written and directed by Oscar-winner Alfonso Cuarón, set in the early 1970's...

"...is a semi-autobiographical take on Cuarón's upbringing in Mexico City, including the life of a live-in housekeeper to a middle-class family..."

"The Ballad of Buster Scruggs" written, directed and produced by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen ("Blood Simple") as an anthology, follows a 'sharp-shooting songster', starring Tim Blake Nelson, Liam Neeson, Zoe Kazan, Tyne Daly and Tom Waits.

"...in 'Near Algodones', a wannabe' bank robber gets his due and then some. 'Meal Ticket' is a gothic tale about two weary travelling performers.
