The FULL LIST of Oscar Winners From the 90th Academy Awards and the Inevitable Disappointments

Logo for the 90th Academy Awards

Well, another awards season bites the dust. The 90th Academy Awards show happened last night, and this year’s batch of Oscar statuettes now sit in the homes of their respective recipients. Below is the full list of winners, and while overall the evening was hugely inspiring for many reasons, there were some disappointments that I think are worth addressing.

None of the men who beat women in their categories acknowledged the women they were nominated with at all. One would think that this year, of all years, the men who won awards in categories in which women were nominated would at least acknowledge the women they beat in some way to show support or solidarity in their field. Rachel Morrison had a historic nomination as the first woman nominated for Best Cinematographer. She lost to film legend Roger Deakins, whom I’m sure she admires, yet when he took to the stage he didn’t take a moment to acknowledge her, this younger cinematographer who, even though she didn’t win, made history in his field. This is not the first time that Guillermo del Toro has beat out both Jordan Peele and Greta Gerwig, and one would think, especially since he talked about the youth and new voices in his speech, that he would acknowledge a fellow man of color as well as the only female nominee in his category, both of whom were nominated for their feature film debuts, in particular. I’m not saying these, and other men should’ve made their speeches all about the marginalized, but it will truly be a mark of how far we’ve come when the male recipients of professional accolades acknowledge the women struggling to achieve what they are given with relative ease when receiving those accolades.

Women were nominated, but the Academy didn’t see fit to actually give them very many awards. Of the 24 awards that were handed out, 20 were in gender-neutral categories (ie: not the actor categories). Of those 20 gender-neutral categories,  14 had female nominees at all (most having only one). Of those fourteen categories, only four had women as solo winners, or as members of a winning team:

  • Best Make-up and Hairstyling (Lucy Sibbick, Darkest Hour)
  • Best Animated Feature (Darla K. Anderson, Coco)
  • Best Live Action Short Film (writer Rachel Shenton and producer Rebecca Harris, The Silent Child)
  • Best Original Song (Kristen Anderson-Lopez, “Remember Me” from Coco)

This year’s Oscars were chock-full of inspiring moments, like this amazing and rousing performance of “This is Me,” from The Greatest Showman:

However, even on evenings as good as this, we shouldn’t be distracted from how far we still have to go. We’re a long way from gender parity, but as all those pins said, the time’s up on that.
