NBC News reports:
An awards show long known for its iconoclastic choices didn’t disappoint, not only choosing “Bohemian Rhaposody” over “A Star is Born” for best dramatic film, but picking several lower profile performances — like British actress Olivia Colman as best actress in a comedy/musical for her role as Queen Anne in “The Favourite,” over Emily Blunt in “Mary Poppins Returns;” and Glenn Close as best actress (drama) for the title role in “The Wife,” over Lady Gaga and other luminaries, including Nicole Kidman (“Destroyer”) and Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”)
The biggest upset of the evening may have been that “A Star is Born,” a marquee entry with nominations in four major categories, managed only a single gold trophy. The movie won best original song for “Shallow,” written by the film’s star, Lady Gaga, and three co-writers. That proved to be a consolation for the film, which lost out in the best actor (Bradley Cooper), best actress (Gaga) and best director (Cooper, again) categories.
The full list of winners is here.
