The 2019 Oscars turned out to be better than ever for LGBT movies. Eight total awards went to movies with queer themes, which is more than ever before. “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “The Favourite” and “Green Book” all prevailed, joining the list of LGBT Oscar winners throughout history. That includes one acting award apiece three out of four acting Oscars for queer roles is unprecedented. Best Picture winner “Green Book” admittedly falls into a grey area in terms of LGBT representation. The film is set in the Jim Crow South and focuses more on race than on gender or sexuality.
