Of the five nominees as Best Director, only Pawel Pawlikowski got nominated in the category without getting a Best Picture nomination for his film Cold War (2018). This marked the second time Pawel and his cinematographer Lukasz Zal received Oscar nominations for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Cinematography, respectively. The previous film was Ida (2013), which won the Oscar as Foreign Film. Both films were shot in black and white, and in the 2019 edition they were running in the same three categories as Roma (2018).

Herself - Winner: Best Costume Design:
Wow. Wow. I got it. Wow. This has been a long time coming. Spike Lee, thank you for my start. I hope this makes you proud. Marvel may have created the first black superhero, but through costume design we turned him into an African king. It's been my life's honor to create costumes. Thank you to the Academy. Thank you for honoring African royalty and the empowered way women can look and lead on screen. Thank you to my crews around the world who helped bring Wakanda to life. Our genius director ...

I like to thank the winners for going on and on.....
It started off with a blast. Queen!
The hostless Oscars ceremony because some comedians have not realised the dangers of social media.
However the lack of jokes was noticeable and maybe we should have had more Queen songs.
The awards were nicely spread out this year. Bohemian Rhapsody, Black Panther, Roma, Green Book all got a slice of the pie. I did think Green Book was undeserving of the top prize, especially as one of the writer's Nick Vallelonga supported one of Trump's lies about Muslims in New Jersey and was caught with his metaphorical pants down. It also undermined the message the film was making.
The downside of the Oscars were those excruciating awful speeches. Here is a hint, the television audience does not want to know the names of everyone associated in your life. If you win the best special effects Oscar, there can be 750 people who worked on the special effects in some capacity. So when you thank and read out the names of 30 people. What about the other 730 who you have ignored?
The worse offender was Spike Lee who ironically won an Oscar for his words. I had to put my hands on my face in horror as he droned on and on. I would not be surprised if BlacKkKlansman was meant to be the Best Picture Oscar winner and someone swapped it for Green Book to save the world from another Spike Lee speech. Spike, there were three other writers of that film and they did not even manage to get a word in.
At least Lady Gaga showed how it should be done. A powerful performance of Shallow with Bradley Cooper followed by an inspiring speech.
