Watch the hilarious Olivia Colman Oscar speech that is winning the internet

Richard E. Grant

Amy has stunned in some blockbuster Hollywood movies but has never won, despite amassing a whopping six nominations for her outstanding work.

Close was assumed to be a shoo-in.

Colman's message to her children was also adorable and amusing. Same, honestly. It appeared Colman was just as surprised with her win as the rest of the room, as she blushed profusely and appeared flustered.

The Academy Awards ceremony was held without a host for the first time since 1989 and instead was filled with powerhouse music performances.

Colman then reminisced about her days working as a cleaner ("I spent quite a lot of my time imagining this!" she said) before closing her speech by blowing a kiss to Gaga. Well, if you're not, then kind of well done but I sort of hope you are; this is not going to happen again.

Olivia Colman won the Best Actress prize at the Oscars - but who should win the gong for best dressed? Best actor Rami Malek also pointed out his mom as he accepted his award for "Bohemian Rhapsody", saying, "I love you, lady".

Close, for her part, merely shook her head and laughed. While Close gave an extraordinary performance in The Wife, the film was not the runaway hit that The Favourite turned out to be.

Goodell has punished Kraft's Patriots more severely than any other franchise during his tenure. He told a judge that he was under the influence of painkillers when the traffic stop occurred.

We stan a literal Academy Award-winning Queen.

Olivia Colman delivers charming speech as she wins the Oscar for Lead Actress for her role in The Favourite.

He said of Roma not scooping best film: "Netflix made Roma and (it) is the biggest threat to all the big studios..." Beachler is the first black production designer to be nominated and to win the category. Olivia Colman ends hers thanking Lady Gaga.

Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron was chosen as best director for "Roma", his sentimental black-and-white journey back to his childhood, and the film won two other Oscars, including for best foreign language. She is now playing Queen Elizabeth II in the Netflix Original, The Crown.

David Tennant said he'd seen her work for years and he got the impression she was "really sound, straightforward and unpretentious", so when he met her and realised she really was all of those things, it was a huge relief.

She will also be taking to the small screen in 2019 to portray Madame Thanardier in the Les Miserables mini-series.
