He joked, "The ref made the wrong call".
The top prize - the third statuette of the night for "Green Book" - came after its star Mahershala Ali, an African American and two years ago the first Muslim to win an acting Oscar, bagged the prize for best supporting actor.
"We saw a little reaction to the Green Book win, can you give us your thoughts on that Best Picture win?" a reporter asked.
Many in Hollywood had hoped the top award would go to Netflix for "Roma" or Marvel for "Black Panther", but the motion picture academy instead threw its fullest support on February 24 behind the traditional tale based on Peter Farrelly's "Green Book".
The night's co-lead nominee "Roma", which was favored to hand Netflix its first best picture win, won best director and best cinematography for Cuaron, whose film also notched Mexico's first foreign language film Oscar.

"The Don Shirley family thing falls on me but Don Shirley himself told me not to speak to anyone", Vallelonga said.

"Green Book", based on a true story of the unlikely friendship between a black pianist and his white driver touring the racially segregated U.S. Deep South during the 1960s, also won for best original screenplay and supporting actor, Mahershala Ali.
"BlacKkKlansman" was also nominated for best picture.
Rhode Island native and former MA resident Peter Farrelly, who directed, co-produced, and co-wrote the film, as well as Peabody native Brian Currie, who co-produced and co-wrote it, were among the crew and cast members who accepted the award.
When Green Book's win was announced, the director could be seen leaving his seat in what many interpreted as his way of showing his disapproval with the decision. The "Green Book" of the title refers to an actual guide book that was used at the time to identify motels, eateries and fuel pumps that would serve African-Americans. But none of these moments compare to seeing Spike charge the stage to accept his statue for the competitive Adapted Screenplay category in his purple suit, Price necklace, and custom Oscar-gold Jordans, then leap into the arms of Samuel Jackson, the main dude that has been rocking with Spike's films since "Do the Right Thing". "This film is for everyone who believes in the impossible". "Our nation bears the scars of that time, as do I".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
