Peter Farrelly's "Green Book" emerged as the surprise winner at the 91st Oscars on Sunday night. The film, telling the story of world-class African-American pianist Don Shirley and his Italian-American driver Tony Vallelonga touring the Southern part of a deeply segregated 1962 America, won three major categories, including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor.
