The Low Down:
The biggest surprise of the night was definitely Olivia Colman’s triumph here. After sweeping the televised awards (minus the BAFTA, which went to Colman) Glenn Close lost what was presumed to be her overdue first Oscar. You can knock it up to a couple of things (more love for The Favourite than The Wife is probably the real reason), but the better performance won. With news that Sunset Boulevard starts shooting this fall… better luck next time Glenn?
- Glenn Close, The Wife++++
- Olivia Colman, The Favourite++++
- Lady Gaga, A Star is Born++
- Melissa McCarthy, Can You Ever Forgive Me?
- Yalitza Aparicio, Roma
