**Circuit Q&A’s are our daily community question, posed to the readers of AwardsCircuit that cover various topics from film and television to general wonderings and for instances**

With the dust still settling from the 91st Academy Awards, emotions are very much running high. Fans of the films and performances that won Oscars are overjoyed, while backers of those who didn’t win are licking their wounds. We should focus on the positive today. To that end, we want to see which Oscar win on Sunday night was your favorite. Was there a win that really made you happy?

It’s hard not to be thrilled with Lady Gaga winning an Oscar for Best Original Song. Her speech was beautiful, coming on the heels of her tremendous performance with Bradley Cooper moments before. She was never going to win Best Actress, but this gives her an Academy Award for her work in “A Star Is Born.” It’s often nice to see a non-actor win at the Oscars, so Gaga taking this was a nicely satisfying win. There’s also Olivia Colman pulling a shocking upset in Best Actress for “The Favourite.” We needed an acting surprise and this was one of the most enjoyable ones in some time.

Another win that you have to be delighted by is Spike Lee and his co-writers taking Best Adapted Screenplay for “BlacKkKlansman.” Lee’s utter excitement was emotional in the best way. The filmmaker now has a competitive Oscar on his mantle, which is good for the film world on the whole.

It’s time to let your voice be heard. What was your favorite Oscar win on Sunday? We’re all ears!

When he’s not obsessing over new Oscar predictions on a weekly basis, Joey is seeing between 300 and 350 movies a year. He views the best in order to properly analyze the awards race/season each year, but he also watches the worst for reasons he mostly sums up as "so you all don't have to". In his spare time, you can usually find him complaining about the Jets or the Mets. Still, he lives and dies by film. Joey's a voting member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association.

Green Book for BP. This is the first time in so many years that the best nominated movie won. It feels nice to get this one.

Spike Lee and Olivia Colman are all-time winners, but can we take a moment to appreciate the utterly INSPIRED picks of BLACK PANTHER is Production Design and Costumes? My god.

First Man not going home empty handed made me very happy.

I’m with Clayton on the Colman upset. Glenn Close by all means should be an Oscar winner and I feel so bad for her because I’m sure she thought it was finally going to happen, but Colman was the best in that category and her win was so deserved and I cheered so hard. And she didn’t even campaign much, which proves that the academy is capable of voting for the best work instead of voting for someone because they’re overdue/because they like them/because they’re supposed to, screwing other performances over in the process. On a night of so many… Read more »

Green Book winning best picture, Cuaron winning Direction and First Man winning Visuals.

But the most deserved Oscar and the one that made me very happy is the victory of Ruth Carter for her amazing Costumes in Black Panther.


Olivia Colman’s SHOCKING win for Best Actress; I wanted Glenn Close to win but I was thrilled for Olivia AND IT SAVED THE FAVOURITE FROM GOING HOME EMPTY HANDED; I had a feeling they wouldn’t do good at the Oscars. Black Panther winning Costume Design, Production Design & Original Score since a few people had assumed that they would go home empty-handed.
With Olivia, all the other actors winning: Rami Malek for Lead Actor, Mahershala Ali for Supporting Actor and Regina King for Supporting Actress

Seeing Regina King was the moment of the night for me. As soon as she won I even posted whatever happens the rest of the night I could deal with because the Regina King win madw my heart smile, she came a long way since playing Brenda on 227.

When Bohemian Rhapsody won for Film Editing… jk, hard to say that with a straight face!

Honestly? Colman’s win, while I’m heart-broken for Glenn Close, is such a great and deserving surprise that after I picked my jaw off the floor, I had the biggest grin on my face. Plus it helped her speech was so genuinely fun!


Best: Roma in Best Cinematography
Favorite: Olivia Colman for Best Actress
