Olivia Colman took home the Academy Award for Best Actress at Sunday night's Oscars for her role as Queen Anne in The Favourite. That being said, we're also totally in love with Olivia Colman (because she's totally incredible). James's mum Denise said she was "made up" that is lost out to Skin. After all, none of this year's nominated films for best picture had a female director.

"And any little girl who's practicing your speech on the telly, you never know!"

After receiving the Oscar from two of last year's acting winners, Sam Rockwell and Frances McDormand, Colman profusely thanked Lanthimos, as well as Stone and Rachel Weisz, whom she called "the two loveliest women in the world to fall in love with".

An emotional Lady Gaga (pictured) was among the winners for the best original song prize for Shallow from A Star Is Born after performing an impassioned duet with co-star Bradley Cooper.

Writer Rae Earl said: "Olivia Colman also did incredible TV work on both "Peep Show" & "That Mitchell & Webb look" & if you haven't watched them you should watch them now and COMEDY RARELY GETS THE RESPECT IT DESERVES. Ta".

Her thank you-filled acceptance speech was one of the most earnest of the night, brimming with emotion and unadulterated glee, and honestly, our hearts are full after watching.

She became the first indigenous Mexican woman to receive an Oscar nomination and second Mexican to be nominated in the Best Actress in a Leading Role category.

Speaking to Variety before the awards show on Sunday (February 24), Shangela said: "Honestly, I'm just so grateful to be here". According to People , Gaga and Cooper retired to backstage after their performance, where the two embraced and were applauded.

Bangladesh doesn't Recognise Shamima Begum as a Bangladeshi Citizen

However, it was the Uruguayan who disappointed the most, continuing his abysmal away streak in the competition . But for Champions League fans expecting some goal-filled action, they were left pondering a night to forget.

She became the first British victor of the award since Kate Winslet in 2009 for her portrayal of Queen Anne in the acerbic royal romp filmed in Hatfield House and the estate's gardens. "I used to work as a cleaner and I loved that job, I did spend quite a lot of my time imagining this".

Green Book unexpectedly took home Best Picture over pre-ceremony favorite Roma, and its star Mahershala Ali was named Best Supporting Actor.

'To my husband Ed, my best friend, I love you so much.

Bohemian Rhapsody won the most awards in total with four, while Roma and Black Panther also won three each.

And the award for best Oscar speech goes to...

While Colman is taking the time to savor her win, she won't be sitting around for long.

That wasn't the first time Colman has portrayed British royalty in a movie or show.
