“Roma” Wins Three Oscars At The 2019 Academy Awards

Last night’s Oscars was all about Alfonso Cuarón and his film “Roma.” The 91st Academy Awards recognized “Roma” with ten nominations, the most of all films, and yet the main category that mattered was Best Actress.

Yalitza Aparicio’s historic nomination — the first Mexican indigenous actress to ever be nominated for an Oscar — had everyone watching in anticipation, including those in her hometown of Ttlaxiaco, Oaxaca in Mexico.

While Roma didn’t take home every Oscar it was nominated for, the cast and crew did not go home empty handed.

Alfonso Cuarón won for Best Director.

Fellow Mexican director Guillermo Del Toro presented Cuarón with the award saying that he was feeling sick but he was not going to miss the big night. It’s a good thing he showed up. He was elated to hand the big award to his friend.

“Being up here doesn’t get old,” Cuarón said.

Unfortunately, Aparicio lost for Best Actress, but there’s no denying she looked beautiful.

She wore a stunning Rodarte gown. Clearly she and her mother were over the moon when they had a chance to meet Diego Luna while walking the red carpet.

Obviously, she would take her mom as her date.

“I realize that being a teacher and being an actress can be quite similar. We can teach the world through the presentation of this film,” she told “Entertainment Tonight” while on the red carpet.

Marina de Tavira also helped Aparicio with translating her interviews during the red carpet.

From the very beginning of this movie’s release, de Tavira and Aparicio have been promoting it side-by-side, which is why seeing them together on the red carpet was even more special. Not only were they accompanying each other, but de Tavira was kind enough to be her translator.

The entire cast of “Roma” attended the award show.

We are so glad they could all partake in the festivities, especially actor Jorge Antonio Guerrero who had issues getting his visa approved to come to the U.S.

People we upset that the leading ladies of “Roma” were denied their win, but Cuarón thanked them each time he went on stage.

“Thank you very much, Mexico. My family,” Cuarón said.

“Roma” also took Best Foreign Film.

“You know, I grew up watching foreign language films. Films like ‘Jaws’ and ‘Citizen Kane'” Cuarón said to the crowd and then went on to thank Aparicio and de Tavira.

We’re so happy for “Roma” and everyone involved with the film!
