British Olivia Colman won the Oscar for the best actress, while Rami Malek won the Oscar for the best actor at the 91st Academy Awards held at Los Angeles in California, US.

According to the BBC, the movie Green Book won the best film award at the Academy Awards.   

Green Book won three trophies in total, including best picture, which had been widely expected to go to Roma. Bohemian Rhapsody won the most awards in total with four, while Roma and Black Panther also won three each. Holding back tears on stage, Colman said: "It's genuinely quite stressful. This is hilarious. I've got an Oscar!" The first British woman to win the prize since Kate Winslet in 2009, she added, "Any little girl who's practising their speech on the telly - you never know!" The four awards for Bohemian Rhapsody, the authorised biopic of Queen and Freddie Mercury, included best actor for Rami Malek, who won rave reviews for playing the late singer. "I think about what it would have been like to tell little bubba Rami that one day this might happen to him, and I think his curly-haired little mind would have been blown," he said in his acceptance speech. "That kid was struggling with his identity, trying to figure himself out, and to anyone struggling and trying to discover their voice - listen, we made a film about a gay man, an immigrant, who lived his life unapologetically himself. And the fact I'm celebrating him and this story with you tonight is proof that we're longing for stories like this." Mahershala Ali won his second best supporting actor Oscar in three years. He won for Moonlight in 2017 and has now won for playing jazz pianist Don Shirley in Green Book. "Trying to capture his essence pushed me to my ends, which was a reflection of the person he was and the life that he lived," Ali said.
