Los Angeles- Road trip movie "Green Book" won best picture at the Oscars on Sunday, while Mexico's Alfonso Cuaron was chosen as best director for his sentimental film "Roma."
In an upset, Britain's Olivia Colman got the best actress Oscar for "The Favourite," beating presumed front-runner Glenn Close, who starred in "The Wife."
"Glenn Close - you have been my idol for so long, and this is not how I wanted it to be," a delighted but shocked Colman told her fellow actress, sitting in the audience.
Rami Malek won for his role as late frontman Freddie Mercury in 21st Century Fox musical "Bohemian Rhapsody." The film won three other Academy Awards.
"I may not have been the obvious choice, but I guess it worked out," said Malek, who had been favoured to win the award.
