Octavia Spencer & Mahershala Ali have another statue to add to their collection after tonight's Best Picture win.  Watch it inside.


Green Book pulled out the win at tonight's Oscars, despite Star Is Born and other films seemingly being the front runners in the Best Picture category.

Executive producer Octavia Spencer (who has three Oscar nominations and 1 win for Best Supporting Actress for The Help) and the most consistently recognized person attached to the movie -  Mahershala Ali - are 2 of the four or so people who would seemingly get to take home an actual trophy because of their position with the movie.  That is, if folks follow the Hollywood tradition of who gets to actually take home the award.

Not everybody is happy for their win, though.  Spike Lee, whose BlackkKlansman movie lost to Green Book, said backstage "Every time someone is driving some else, I lose."  He's referencing, of course, his Do The Right Thing movie losing out on an Oscar back in 1990 to Driving Miss Daisy.  Ha.

In the meantime, Mahershala and Octavia win another gold.  Or at least help their Green Book family win. Congrats!
