Oscars 2019: Olivia Colman wins Best Actress Academy Award for 'The Favourite'

Olivia Colman Beats Glenn Close For Best Actress Oscar In Massive Upset

And while there was no pleasure in watching Close be thwarted again, Colman's comical, emotional speech infused the evening with so much joy - and to be clear, her performance was absolutely deserving of the top honor.

"It's genuinely quite stressful", she said as she reached the stage.

"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.

She then thanked Lady Gaga, who was applauding her from the front row, before also thanking her co-stars Weisz and Stone, whom she described as "the two loveliest women in the world to go to work with".

The woman behind Fatal Attraction may be able to play an unstable obsessor capable of brutal harm; however, she seems to have no intention of going after Colman.

Olivia Coleman perhaps pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the night, beating frontrunner Glenn Close to take home the Oscar for Best Actress in a leading role for her deft performance as the erratic Queen Anne in The Favourite. Well, she did describe her Oscars win as "hilarious" and tear up while kissing her award - so we don't dispute that at all.
