The 91st Academy Awards on Sunday was a starry affair and the award ceremony had quite a few surprises. Given the eight-hour time difference between London and Los Angeles - and that it was almost 4 o'clock in the morning in the U.K.at the time of her win - it would indeed have been impressive if they were still awake watching their mom pick up the Oscar thousands of miles away.

In true Colman style, she heeded calls to wrap the speech by blowing a raspberry. Then she addressed the elephant in the room (well, our room anyway) and fangirled over Glenn Close for a sec.

Colman's resume is impressive and long.

Let's take a look at these two questions as well as some other background information on Colman.

He added: "Btw, any actors wondering how it feels to wake up & find an exact contemporary just won an Oscar - they'd just better bloody well be Olivia Colman".

Colman's win for her performance as Queen Anne in The Favourite attracted acclaim unusual for a comedy film, and several on social media felt it was high time the genre got the respect it deserved. The critically acclaimed film has a 94% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

For those negotiations, Arenado was looking for around $ 30 million , while the Rockies were looking to pay around $23 million. The star third baseman and the Colorado Rockies agreed to an eight-year, $260-million contract, the team announced Tuesday.

The black-and-white, Spanish-language film Roma won three prizes, collecting the best director prize for Alfonso Cuaron, best cinematography, also for Cuaron, and best foreign language film. Her break out role in America was for Queen Anne in The Favourite.

Colman has undoubtedly come a long way through her journey of winning an Oscar, having been a cleaner after she graduated theater school in 1999.

Olivia Colman as a guest star on The Office, U.K. series. She played Queen Elizabeth in Hyde Park on Hudson and Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown on Netflix.

Her role lasted for the first seven seasons when she chose to depart the show. Take, for example, the black Stella McCartney gown she wore to the Golden Globe Awards.
