'Roma' wins two early Oscars as Queen rocks show without a host
Updated : February 25, 2019 10:43 AM IST
"Roma" won the best foreign language Oscar - a first for Mexico - and director Cuaron was named best cinematographer - two of several awards that his sentimental movie is expected to win on Sunday.
The black-and-white "Roma" went into Sunday's show with 10 nominations, including best picture. A win would mark the first best picture Oscar for Netflix and a sign that streaming services can not only compete with traditional Hollywood studios but beat them at their own game.
British band Queen got the first Oscar ceremony in 30 years without a host off to a rousing start with a performance of their hit songs "We Are the Champions" and "We Will Rock You" that brought the A-list crowd to its feet.
