Alfonso Cuarón's 'Roma' took home the Golden Globe for "Best Foreign Language Film" and the coveted "Best Director" trophy on Sunday night.
The film, shot in black and white with an almost entirely Mexican crew, follows the daily routines and the powerful struggles of a domestic worker employed by a middle-class family who lives in the neighborhood Colonia Roma, in Mexico City.
“Cinema at its best…builds bridges to another culture,” Cuarón said in one of his acceptance speech. “As we grow these bridges…we begin to realize that while they may be strange, they are not unfamiliar. We begin to understand exactly how much we have in common.”
The Academy Award-winning director beat out fellow nominees Bradley Cooper for A Star Is Born, Peter Farrelly for Green Book, Spike Lee for BlacKkKlansman, and Adam McKay for Vice.
