Academy Award winning films

Various (Reuters) – The 2019 Oscars were a win for films telling stories from a range of racial and cultural perspectives, marking a major shift three years after the movie industry’s top awards show was slammed for overlooking work by nonwhite artists.

“Green Book,” a film about racial injustice in the segregated U.S. South in the 1960s, took best picture, the night’s top prize. In his acceptance speech, director Peter Farrelly said the film, about a black pianist and his white driver, was “about loving each other despite our differences.”

“Green Book” won three awards, as did “Roma,” a black-and-white, Spanish-language film about an indigenous housemaid, and “Black Panther,” a Marvel superhero movie with an almost entirely black cast. Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman,” about a black detective who goes undercover with the Ku Klux Klan, also was honored.
