Poll: Oscar Doesn't Always Speak English

This year, for the 2019 Academy Awards, two actors (Yalitza Aparicio and Marina de Tavira, both from 'Roma') were nominated for their performances, in which they speak languages other than English. This has happened 35 times before and eight of those actors won, suggesting that Oscar might be multilingual after all. Of these seven winning performances, which one do you think was most deserving of the Oscar?
