Alfonso Cuaron Wins Best Director at Oscars 2019 - Watch!

Alfonso Cuaron wins the award for Best Director at the 2019 Academy Awards on Sunday (February 24) at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The Roma director beat out Vice‘s Adam McKay, The Favourite‘s Yorgos Lanthimos, BlacKkKlansman‘s Spike Lee and Cold War‘s Paweł Pawlikowski to win the award.

Alfonso is also the first Mexican to win an Academy Award for Directing, having won for Gravity in 2014.

Roma follows a year in the life of a middle-class family’s maid in Mexico City in the early 1970s, and stars Yalitza Aparicio and Marina de Tavira.

“I want to thank the Academy for recognizing a film centered around an indigenous woman, one of the 70 million domestic workers in the world without work rights. As artists, our job is to look where others don’t,” he said.

Yalitza Aparicio Poses at the Mexico Border For 'W' Magazine

Yalitza Aparicio poses for a shoot conceptualized by Roma director Alfonso Cuaron for one of the covers of W magazine’s Volume 2: Director’s Cut issues.

Here’s what the 25-year-old actress and the director had to share with the mag:

Alfonso on the impact of Yalitza’s Academy Award nomination for best actress: “We create a division every day with the people around us, and Yalitza comes from a place that is easy to put aside and forget. In Mexico and elsewhere, people who look like Yalitza are immediately ­classified and deemed unworthy. Being acknowledged by the Academy has a big impact. It’s another wall. And hopefully that wall has started to fall.”

Alfonso on why he staged the shoot at the Mexico border: “The wall turns people into enemies for no reason. Walls are pointless. Whether there is a physical structure there or not, I’m more concerned with the invisible wall that divides social classes and backgrounds. That’s a barrier we accept every day, without thinking.”

Yalitza on her role as a representative of indigenous people: “I went to school to be a teacher. And Roma can educate people. It can help break the stereotype that skin color determines your destiny.”
