Olivia Colman defied the odds to scoop an Oscar on a night when Green Book also sprang a surprise by winning the award for best film.
After she won Best Actress, an almost-overcome Olivia Colman thanked her director and co-stars, and then thanked the actress she seems to think should have won tonight.
"Glenn Close, you've been my idol for so long and this isn't how I wanted it to be", said Colman, who won for The Favorite, in which she portrayed Queen Anne. "I think you're amazing and I love you very much."
Green Book (2018) won three trophies in total, including best picture, which had been expected to go to Netflix's Roma.
Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) won the most awards in total with four, while Roma and Black Panther also won three each.
