Close but it's Olivia Colman for best actress at Oscars

Richard E. Grant and daughter Olivia Grant attend an Oscars reception in LA

Olivia Colman was crowned queen of the Oscars as she beat Glenn Close to the best actress prize. "This is hilarious", she said.

She told the Press Association: "In bed with me, between me and my husband". "And when you think it's impossible, just do not forget to say this piece of advice I got from a very wise woman, 'I did my best, and my best is good enough'".

This is the first win of the night for The Favourite, the extremely queer eighteenth-century story of Queen Anne (Colman) and the women vying for her attention.

Colman won the Best Actress trophy away from frontrunners like Glenn Close for Good Wife and Lady Gaga's acting debut A Star Is Born. She said, "This is not going to happen again".

Yet it's safe to say that one of the most shocked award recipients was Olivia Colman, who took home the Best Actress award for her commanding performance in The Favourite.

Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron was chosen as best director for "Roma", his sentimental black-and-white journey back to his childhood, and the film won two other Oscars, including for best foreign language. Colman left the show after 33 episodes, after noting that she was becoming too closely associated with her character and wanted to broaden her horizons as an actress. "I think you're wonderful".

Haig wrote: "Last November, Olivia Colman was asked - amid her busy schedule - to do the audiobook for the Truth Pixie". This awards season has shown her a host of wins, including one in the Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical category for The Favourite at the Golden Globes. "I think you're fantastic and I love you very much".

Lady Gaga collected the gong for best original song with Mark Ronson, Andrew Wyatt and Anthony Rossomando for their creation Shallow. Colman is brilliant as a woman who spends most of her time in a wheelchair and is often the butt of ridicule.

Its star, Rami Malek, won best actor for his full-bodied and prosthetic teeth-aided performance, and the film was honored for editing, sound mixing and sound editing.
