‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘Black Panther’ Win Multiple Awards At 2019 Oscars

Adam Lambert American Idol Queen Week

Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, Green Book and Black Panther were all multiple award winners at the 2019 Oscars, which this year came from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody led the way, with Green Book taking home best picture, and Bohemian Rhapsody winning four awards including best film editing, best sound mixing, best sound editing and a much-deserved best actor statue for Rami Malek.

Without a host and indulgent montages, the ceremony was blessedly swift and entertaining, putting the spotlight on heartfelt acceptance speeches and the musical performances.

What do you when there’s no host for the Academy Awards? You have Queen open the show and blow the roof off the place. Brian May and Roger Taylor, along with Adam Lambert, got everyone on their feet with ‘We Will Rock You’, followed by a tribute to Freddie Mercury with ‘We Are The Champions’.

Black Panther costume designer Ruth Carter and production designer Hannah Beachler both won for their work on the creating the wonderous world of Wakanda. Meanwhile, the much buzzed about Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse won best animated feature beating out Pixar for the first time it what felt like years.

Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma won best foreign language film, garnering Netflix its first-ever win outside the documentary categories and earned a Best Director win for Cuaron as well.

In an homage to the world’s most iconic nanny, actor Keegan Michael Key channelled Mary Poppins and descended from the rafters via umbrella, before introducing Bette Midler’s performance of Best Song Original song nominee ‘The Place Where Lost Things Go’ from Mary Poppins Returns.

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga finally reunited to perform their smouldering duet ‘Shallow’ from A Star Is Born. A far cry from Gaga’s glam-rock peacocking at the Grammys, their Oscar performance was a stripped back affair, with just a piano and a few microphones, just how Ally and Jackson Maine would’ve wanted it.

Saturday Night Live veterans and Wayne’s World stars Mike Myers and Dana Carvey reunited on stage to present Bohemian Rhapsody, which featured heavily into one of the film’s iconic scenes.

Spike Lee won his first (competitive) Oscar for best adapted screenplay for Blackkklansman and literally leapt into his frequent collaborator and former leading man’s arms, Samuel L Jackson when accepting the award.
