Glenn Close Channels Oscar Statuette in Stunning Gold Carolina Herrera Gown

Olivia Colman was crowned queen of the Oscars as she beat Glenn Close to the best actress prize.

"Honest to God I would have given Olivia Colman the Oscar for the way she slid into the ball pit at the Kid Kave in Peep Show Season 9", wrote Sarah Nicola Prickett.

The 45-year-old English actress won Best Actress on her first Academy Award nomination, which she received last month alongside her Favourite colleagues Stone and Weisz - both of whom scored nods among the Best Supporting Actress set.

This is the first win of the night for The Favourite, the extremely queer eighteenth-century story of Queen Anne (Colman) and the women vying for her attention.

Olivia Colman poses for photos after winning the Best Actress award for "The Favourite" in the press room during the 91st Academy Awards ceremony, or the Oscars, held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, the United States, on February 24, 2019. Close, first Oscar-nominated in 1983 for her supporting role in The World According to Garp, has delivered several critically acclaimed performances throughout her four-decade career.

In an interview with ET, Glenn Close reported feeling "Really, Really Good" after the Oscars ceremony. Glenn Close was almost a shoo-in to win as well, having picked up her seventh Oscar nomination for her turn as Joan Castleman in The Wife. "It's the highest honor you can get for what we do, and so that, in itself.it's just a great honor", adding that it would "all be OK" if it didn't turn out the way she hoped.

Jack Parlett also tweeted about how he will forever cherish the memory of having a drunken smoke with Colman outside of his student union and ending up at a chip van with her.

Colman was visibly shocked as her name was called and was helped to her feet by her husband Ed Sinclair and co-star Emma Stone, who planted a kiss on her cheek. But she is naive and easily fooled, even kept out of the loop - something that Colman portrays with astonishing might. Colman is brilliant as a woman who spends most of her time in a wheelchair and is often the butt of ridicule.
