Cuaron has said the film, made in Spanish and an indigenous language, was inspired by his own memories of growing up with his family in the Colonia Roma neighborhood of Mexico City.

Cast members of "Green Book" with U.S. actor Viggo Mortensen (L), Linda Cardellini (2nd L) and United States actor Mahershala Ali (R) celebrate the Best Picture award onstage during the 91st Annual Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California on 24 February 2019. The win comes for his performance in "Green Book".
