Green Book won Oscar for Best Picture at the 91st Academy Awards, as the Guardian reported.

“Based on a real-life road trip through the deep south in the early 1960s, Green Book’s victory proved a considerable upset at the awards, after a night largely marked by predictability,” the news agency reads.

The film tells about a journey of a black pianist Don Shirley along southern American states, where racism prevails.

"The real drama, and also the comedy, is between the two men. The contrast of their temperaments is not subtle. Don, highly accomplished and educated — he’s “Dr. Shirley” to most, “Doc” to Tony — is formal and fastidious, an aesthete and an intellectual with no patience for vulgarity or sloppiness," The New Yorker infomred.
