Two films — “The Favourite” and “Roma” — headed into Sunday’s Academy Awards with a leading 10 nominations apiece, but they won just four between them. “Roma” took home three Oscars: Best Foreign Language Film and two for director and cinematographer Alfonso Cuaron. “The Favourite” turned out not to be that, winning just one prize: Best Actress (Olivia Colman).
“Bohemian Rhapsody” only had five bids but it won four of them: Best Actor (Rami Malek), film editing and both sound awards.
“Green Book” went three for five with wins for Best Picture, supporting actor (Mahershala Ali) and original screenplay.
“Black Panther” reaped a lucky seven nominations and also won three: original score and both costume and production designs.
Two films — “A Star is Born” and “Vice” — went one for eight. The former won Best Original Song (“Shallow”) while the later won for the makeup artists and hairstylists who transformed Christian Bale into Dick Cheney.
Six-time contender “BlacKkKlansman” won for its adapted screenplay.
All of these films numbered a Best Picture nomination among their bids. The only feature films to win other than these eight were “First Man” (visual effects), “If Beale Street Could Talk” (supporting actress, Regina King) and “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” (animated feature).
