Oscar Wrap-Up

History was made Sunday night as Bong Joon-Ho's "Parasite" swept the Oscars, picking up the first Best Picture win for a foreign-language film, as well as Korea's first win for Best International Feature Film and Bong Joon-Ho's first wins for Best Original Screenplay and Best Director. Brad Pitt and Joaquin Phoenix also won their first Academy Awards for their respective performances in "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" and "Joker." And, a completely humbled Hildur Guðnadóttir became the third female composer to win Best Original Score for "Joker" – just last month she became the first woman composer to win a Golden Globe.

"1917," a leading Best Picture contender, ended up getting technical awards: Best Cinematography (Roger Deakins), Best Sound Mixing and Best Visual Effects. "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," also a leading Best Picture contender, ended up with the award for Best Production Design, as well as Brad Pitt's aforementioned win. "Ford v Ferrari" received technical awards for Best Editing and Best Sound Editing. Taika Waititi won Best Adapted Screenplay for "Jojo Rabbit," and Elton John won his first Oscar since 1994's "The Lion King" with his original song "(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again" from "Rocketman." Lesser surprises include Renée Zellweger and Laura Dern's wins for their respective performances in "Judy" and "Marriage Story," Disney-Pixar's "Toy Story 4" taking Best Animated Film, and Netflix's "American Factory" winning Best Documentary.

Throughout the show, it was the snubs that were on everyone's mind. In her opening show-stopping performance, Janelle Monáe, used her moment to proclaim, "I'm so proud to be standing here as a Black, queer artist telling stories. Happy Black History Month!" Behind her, dancers were dressed as characters from both Oscar-recognized movies ("Little Women" and "Joker") and unrecognized movies ("Us" and "Midsommar"). Later, in his opening monologue with Steve Martin, Chris Rock poked fun at #OscarsAlmostSoWhite, joking that "Harriet" star and Harriet Tubman portrayer "Cynthia [Erivo] did such a great job...in 'Harriet' hiding black people, that the Academy got her to hide all the black nominees."

Our favorite Oscar moments:
  • Janelle Monáe failing at getting Brad Pitt and Brie Larson to sing.
  • Chris Rock's burn to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos: "Jeff Bezos is so rich he got divorced and he’s still the richest man in the world."
  • Brad Pitt giving well-due respect to stunt coordinators and stunt crew as he accepts his Best Supporting Actor award for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," in which he played an out-of-work stuntman.
  • Bong Joon Ho admiring his just-won Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
  • Josh Gad's subtle reference to John Travolta's "Frozen" Oscar flub as he introduced Idina Menzel performing "Into the Unknown" from "Frozen II."
  • Zack Gottsagen ("The Peanut Butter Falcon") being the first Oscar presenter with Down Syndrome.
  • Laura Dern calling her parents, actors Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern, her heroes in her acceptance speech.
  • Eminem's better-late-than-never performance of his Oscar-winning hit "8 Mile," which left mostly everyone nonplussed, especially Idina Menzel and Martin Scorsese.
  • James Corden and Rebel Wilson presenting the visual effects award in full "Cats" costumes: "As cast members of the motion picture 'Cats,' nobody more than us understands the importance of good visual effects."
  • Composer Hildur Guðnadóttir being completely humbled by her moment winning Best Original Score
  • Director Bong Joon Ho giving respect to all his fellow Best Director nominees, especially Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino.
  • Billie Eilish's somber and beautiful cover of Paul McCartney's "Yesterday," as the late actors, crewmembers and executives were honored.
  • Joaquin Phoenix quoting a lyric from his late brother River in his acceptance speech: "Run to the rescue with love and peace will follow."

And with that, as Brad Pitt said in his acceptance speech, "once upon a time in Hollywood...ain't that the truth."
