'Roma' And The Secrets Of Domestic LaborPlay
Sunday night's Oscars ceremony was a glitzy event — with big-budget blockbusters like "Black Panther" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" taking some of the top awards.
But one of the big winners of the night was a black-and-white, Spanish-language film set in 1970s Mexico City: "Roma."
The movie won best director, best cinematography, and best foreign language film.
Its star — 25-year-old Yalitza Aparicio, who had no prior acting experience — was nominated for best actress.
Aparicio did not take the Oscar last night. But in a column last week about the film, Boston Globe editorial writer Marcela García wrote that just by being nominated, "she's already won."
