Guillermo del Toro's 'The Shape of Water' took home the most awards this year, including Best Director and the coveted Best Picture.

Gary Oldman won his first ever Oscar as Winston Churchill in 'Darkest Hour', while Frances McDormand ('Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri') unsurprisingly clinched the Best Actress award. Best Supporting Actress and Supporting Actor went to Allison Janney ('I, Tonya') and Sam Rockwell ('Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri') respectively.

If you're not too keen on watching the three hour-plus ceremony in its entirety, here's a quick recap of memorable highlights from the 2018 Oscars :

1. The regal cast of 'Black Panther' showed up to the red carpet looking like they owned the whole of Hollywood. Not that we'd mind, coz #WakandaForever.

This is Betty as the uber creepy Georgina in 'Get Out':

3. Screenwriter James Ivory wore a shirt with 'Call Me By Your Name' breakout star Timothée Chalamet's face on it. #woke

The 89-year-old also won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay ('Call Me By Your Name'), making him the oldest Oscar winner of all time. 

4. Whoever designed the stage for this year's Oscars deserves their own Academy Award for this dazzling display

Here are a few more pics coz the stage is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING

FUN FACT: The extravagant set was built with 45 million Swarovski crystals, took 3,250 hours to complete, and weighed 15,000 pounds.

5. Returning host Jimmy Kimmel dished out some pretty shady jokes throughout the evening...

... And introduced a new way to play off winners who are taking too long with their acceptance speeches

6. All envelopes were clearly labelled with their respective categories, because y'know, the 'La La Land' mix-up.

7. But then there were some awkward moments when winners had to put their Oscars on the ground coz there was no podium...?

8. In a bizarre turn of events, a jet ski presented by Dame Helen Mirren was apparently put up for grabs

The jet ski went to Mark Bridges, who won Best Costume Design for 'Phantom Thread', because his acceptance speech only clocked in at 36 seconds.

10. Presenters Lupita Nyong'o and Kumail Nanjiani - who are both immigrants - pledged their support to DREAMers who are awaiting opportunities to obtain permanent US citizenship

"Like everyone in this room and everyone watching at home, we are dreamers. We grew up dreaming of one day working in the movies. Dreams are the foundation of Hollywood, and dreams are the foundation of America," Lupita said.

11. Marvel and DC collided when Chadwick Boseman and Margot Robbie went onstage to present the Best Adapted Screenplay award

For context, Chadwick Boseman plays the titular character in 'Black Panther' and Margot Robbie made 'Suicide Squad' bearable as Harley Quinn.

12. GUYS, BB-8 WAS AT THE OSCARS TOO.

The cute droid joined fellow 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' cast members Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, and Kelly Marie Tran to present the 'Best Animated Feature Film' award to Disney's 'Coco'.

17. Fulfilling a promise made to their six-year-old lead, writer and star of 'The Silent Child', Rachel Shenton, used sign language to deliver her acceptance speech



Shenton - along with fiancé Chris Overton, who directed the short - took home the award for Best Live Action Short Film with 'The Silent Child'. 

The short narrates the story of a four-year-old deaf girl who lives her life in silence until a social worker teaches her how to communicate using British Sign Language.

18. Frances McDormand hailed her fellow female nominees in her acceptance speech

"Look around, everybody, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed. Don’t talk to us at the parties tonight, invite us into your office in a couple days, or you can come to ours. "

19. Second time's the charm for Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway...
