The 2019 Oscars will be remembered for going hostless and nailing it, for finally recognizing Spike Lee with an Oscar win, for historic wins by black artists in a variety of categories, and for one of the most intimate, show-stopping performances of a Best Song nominee (by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper). It also saw Marvel’s Black Panther enter the record books as the studio’s first Oscar winner. The comic book-inspired film won Best Costume Design, Production Design, and Best Score Academy Awards. Ruth Carter became the first black woman to take home an Oscar in the Costume Design category, and Hannah Beachler is the first black Production Designer to win an Academy Award.

Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma was beat out by Green Book in the Best Picture category, but nevertheless his trophy shelf will need to be expanded after the 2019 Academy Awards. It will need to accommodate Best Director, Best Foreign Language Film, and Best Cinematography statuettes. Green Book pulled off the biggest shock of the night by being named Best Picture, something few saw coming. Green Book also took home Oscars in the Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali) categories.

20th Century Fox’s Bohemian Rhapsody won four Oscars, topping the list of this year’s winners. Rami Malek was obviously moved as he accepted his Best Actor Oscar, noting he’s a first generation American who couldn’t have dreamed of this moment as a child. “I think about what it would have been like to tell little Bubba Rami that one day this might happen to him, and I think his curly-haired little mind would be blown. That kid was, he was struggling with his identity, trying to figure himself out. And I think to anyone struggling with theirs and trying to discover their voice, listen we made a film about a gay man, an immigrant, who lived his life just unapologetically himself. And the fact that I’m celebrating him and this story with you tonight is proof that we’re longing for stories like this,” said Malek. “I am the son of immigrants from Egypt. I’m a first generation American and part of my story is being written right now and I could not be more grateful to each and every one of you, and everyone who believed in me for this moment. It is something I will treasure for the rest of my life.”

The music-driven biopic also won in the Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Editing categories.

Other standout moments from this year’s Academy Awards include an important, timely speech by Javier Bardem as he introduced Best Picture nominee Roma and Olivia Colman gaining thousands of new fans with a heartfelt, hysterical and yet moving Best Actress acceptance speech which ended with her blowing a kiss to Lady Gaga. And while we’re talking about Colman’s competitor in the Best Actress category, Lady Gaga didn’t take home that Oscar but she did earn one for “Shallow” from A Star is Born.

Tina Fey, Maya Rudolph, and Amy Poehler were the first presenters to take the stage, joking about not being the award show’s hosts while doing the high speed version of jokes featuring topics a host would normally touch upon. On the music front, Queen with Adam Lambert opened the show with a rousing version of “We are The Champions,” Jennifer Hudson belted out “I’ll Fight” from RBG, and Bette Midler took to the Oscar stage to sing “The Place Where the Lost Things Go” from Mary Poppins Returns.
