Mexican family drama “Roma” won the night’s coveted Best Film prize, as well as Best Film Not in the English Language. Alfonso Cuaron also nabbed the accolades for Best Director and Best Cinematography.
Bradley Cooper had five nominations going into the ceremony, and he managed to convert that into one win for Best Original Music for his directorial debut “A Star Is Born”, which he shares with his co-star Lady GaGa and their collaborator Lukas Nelson.
Other winners included awards favourite Mahershala Ali, who picked up another Best Supporting Actor prize for “Green Book”; Spike Lee, David Rabinowitz, Charlie Wachtel, and Kevin Willmott for Best Adapted Screenplay for “BlacKkKlansman”, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” for Best Animated Film, and “Free Solo” for Best Documentary.
