Lanthimos’s ‘The Favourite’ wins one Academy Award


Yorgos Lanthimos's period drama “The Favourite” won one Academy Award Sunday.

The award went to Olivia Colman for Best Actress.

Thus, the movie, which had received ten nominations (for Best Picture, Director, Actress, Supporting Actress [twice], Original Screenplay, Production Design, Cinematography, Costume Design, Film Editing), the most along with Alfonso Cuaron's "Roma," was nearly shut out, as Academy members turned to other films, notably “Roma,” “Black Panther” and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” with “Green Book” considered a surprising Best Picture winner.
