Oscar 2019: a night for all tastes

I relived all the emotions left by the most important film event in the world.

Oscar 2019

Hollywood is an entertainment industry, in fact, for me it is the big export industry of American culture. That there is talent, craft and high professionalism is not in doubt, but for those of us who love cinema it is good to keep in mind that everything they do is to bill or achieve profit in image.

And the award of the Oscars goes hand in hand with it all. In fact, this Sunday's show had everything you could ask for: humor, excitement, high musical moments and very good films nominated.

It was rare to see nominations such as “Pantera” and “Bohemian Rhapsody”, which were born with the exclusive spirit of ticking (including “Born a Star”, in his successful fourth remake), but the remaining five I think might have been finalists in different installments of the past.

“Roma”, which won the Best Foreign Film Award, is a high artisan and personal work of Alfonso Cuarón, who deservedly won the Best Director Award. “The KKlan infiltrator” may not be on the podium of the best of Spike Lee, but he is very good, as is “La Favorita” by Greek Yorgos Lanthimos, an original story with a very good script.

I left for the end the two most Americanized films, those movies that give the feeling of being born designed for the night of the statuettes. On the one hand “The Vice President” of Adam McKay and a huge work of Christian Bale, not only because of the various physical changes, but because of the level of subtleties he handles in his acting. And the winner for Best Screenplay and Film, “Green Book”, a great story and unforgettable duet between Buenos Aires Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali.

Obviously, not to extend, I left aside Shallow and the wonderful musical moment of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, the opening with Queen live, the emotions of two great winning performers like Rami Malek (Bohemian...) and Olivia Colman (The Favorite), and the well-deserved ovation that Spike Lee took, a big one for several decades.

The 91st edition of the Oscars left us a great night and many good movies to enjoy.
