The Oscars came to give awards again on Sunday, February 24 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. There are many movies, actors, actresses, directors, producers, and music producers up for awards to win. As the awards to be given are highly anticipated, there are many people that are confident in the movie they love to win the award. The nominees for best picture are; Black Panther, Blackkklansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Favourite, Green Book, Roma, A Star Is Born, and Vice.

Some of the other awards to win were; Actor in a Leading Role, Actor in a Supporting Role, Actress in a Leading Role, Actress in a Supporting Role, Costume Design, Directing, Documentary, Film Editing, Foreign Language Film, Makeup and Hairstyling, Music, Short Film, and Writing.

As Bohemian Rhapsody took the movie theaters by storm with $846.3 million in the box office after the release date, Queen is opening up the Oscars this year. The Queen band has survived by the lead guitarist, Brian May, and drummer, Roger Taylor. But the bass player, John Deacon, and lead singer, Freddie Mercury both passed away in the 1990’s. Of course no one could replace Freddie as the lead singer of Queen, but someone new came along to take his place as the lead singer, Adam Lambert.

If you are unaware of who Lambert is, he was a runner up in the 2009 American Idol series and has been a singer and songwriter ever since. He sang “We Are The Champions” and “We Will Rock You” to give tribute to Freddie Mercury along with the other band members.

If you have seen A Star Is Born, you will know the song “Shallows” by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. The two sang this song at the Oscars and had a sentimental moment while at the piano when the two “sank” into the song and had a genuine connection.

The award winner for best picture, Greenbook, was won simply for the diversity and storytelling of the American race relations told by a white person’s perspective. The movie is about a black jazz player that just wants equality for all people in the music community.  

This years Oscar’s was praised for its diverse nominations and winners of the awards.  Many said it was a perfect way to close out Black History Month.

After the night ended, we have the results for who won the awards for this year’s Oscars.
