Lelio, 43, is part of a new wave of Chilean filmmakers along with Pablo Larrain, a co-producer on this film and the director of Oscar-nominated Jackie (2016).

Director Sebastián Lelio accepted the Oscar for A Fantastic Woman, which is the first Chilean film to win in the best foreign film category.

The film, which was made in Chile, is about a transgender woman who falls under suspicion when her older lover dies.

"Thank you so much for this moment", Vega said before introducing Stevens.

Moreno received a standing ovation when she took the stage.

On Twitter, fans of Vega commended the actress - who has said she is the only transgender actress in all of Chile - for her achievements. She smiles at him, and they go to dinner for Marina's birthday. "But I respect those people who are activists, who are committed to changing the world and to having an impact from a legislative standpoint when it comes to the LGBT community", she told The Hollywood Reporter.

A Fantastic Woman is out now.

The injustices in the film range from the subtle to the overt - from the simple inflections of police questioning to the moment when Orlando's ex-wife tells Marina to her face that she "doesn't know what she sees" when she looks at Marina. It is a portrait of a real transgender woman, so it's undeniable that dimension of the film is crucial... The man is Orlando (Francisco Reyes), a business owner and Marina's much older cis boyfriend. Daniela has been facing hardships and overcome adversity throughout her life, especially when she attended an all-boys school at a young age.
