ICYMI, the Oscars a.k.a. the 90th Annual Academy Awards wrapped up on Sunday night, hence ending the 2017/2018 awards season in Hollywood
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.
2. Betty Gabriel, who plays Georgina in 'Get Out', looks almost unrecognisable and totally gorgeous in this teal and gold gown
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
9. Jordan Peele, director and writer of 'Get Out', became the first African-American to win an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay
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
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.
13. On that note - the set design for Miguel and Natalia LaFourcade's performance of 'Remember Me' is sooooo vibrant I LOVE THIS MOVIE SO MUCH. :')
14. For some reason, the two Guillermos (as in, del Toro and Jimmy Kimmel's "sidekick") led an entourage of celebrities carrying candy and sandwiches...
... to surprise this lucky group of moviegoers in the theatre on the other side of the street!
15. Heels in hand, comedians Maya Rudolph and Tiffany Haddish strolled onstage barefoot and wearing Uggs respectively. #mood
16. Kobe Bryant is now an Oscar award-winning writer for his contributions to the animated short 'Dear Basketball'
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
19. Second time's the charm for Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway...
