Oscars 2019: Alfonso Cuarón Wins Best Director

El director Mexicano Alfonso Cuarón has won the Oscar for Best Director for his Netflix-backed Spanish-language film “Roma.” Cuarón was considered the frontrunner for the Oscar after winning Best Director prizes at the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice Awards, and BAFTAs.

The film also received nominations for Best Picture, Best Actress for Yalitza Aparicio, Best Supporting Actress for Marina de Tavira, Best Original Screenplay, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Sound Editing. A total of 10 nominations.

This is Cuarón’s second time winning the Oscar for Best Director. Previously Cuarón won Best Director at the 2014 Oscars for “Gravity.”

“I always wanted to make a film and be comfortable with it when I finished it,” Cuarón told IndieWire last year about the movie. “With ‘Roma,’ I was satisfied with it when we finished. I was very happy with it, and that’s because it’s the first film I was fully able to convey what I wanted to convey as a film. It’s a story in many different shapes and hints of emotions that have been present since the moment I wanted to be a director.”

Felicidades a Alfonso Cuarón!
