The brilliant Olivia Colman won the best actress award for her role in The Favourite and it was our favourite Oscars moment of the night.
Probably not all of America knew who Colman is but they do know after she gave a brilliant Oscar speech that was heartfelt, funny, completely shell-shocked – and totally stole the show

“This is hilarious. I got an Oscar. Okay. I have to thank lots of people. If I forget anybody, I’ll find you later and give you a massive snog, I’m sorry I might forget now.”
This is the moment Olivia found out she won.

And here are just a few of the things people were saying about it.
Olivia Colman, you beauty!!!

Olivia Colman is further proof of my theory that Hogwarts is real, but rather than studying magic, select British children are sent there to learn to be effortlessly charming.

Emma Stone walking out crying through lobby. “That was the best thing that’s ever happened,” she tells her publicist, presumably talking about co-star Olivia Colman? “She’s the best person ever.”
