It is that time of year again; award show season! This past Sunday, February 24, one of the biggest, if not the biggest award show took place, the Oscars. The entirety of the show consisted of moments good and bad as always. Here is a quick recap if you happened to miss any moment of the 91st Oscars.

The show kicked off to a rocky start, as the Oscars had not been without a host for the first time in 30 years! Kevin Hart sparked some controversy when old homophobic tweets resurfaced, and he stepped down from hosting. Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler saved the day with their hilarious commentary. When they left the stage, they left the audience wanting more from the iconic trio.

Not much time was wasted, and the Oscars dove right into announcing awards. The main headliners were Supporting Actress: Regina King, “If Beale Street Could Talk,” Supporting Actor: Mahershala Ali, “Green Book,” Actress: Olivia Colman, “The Favourite,” Actor: Rami Malek, “Bohemian Rhapsody.” To see all of the Oscar winners, click on ‘Oscar winners!’Also, “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Black Panther” took home an astonishing amount of awards, and “Blank Panther” broke a record for amount of oscars won by a superhero film. “Green Book” was awarded Best Picture although it was not the favorite to win and had some controversey behind it.

All of the performances for Original Song were outstanding, but it is no surprise that “Shallow,” from “A Star is Born” won, giving Lady Gaga her first Oscar. Lady Gaga and many others rocked the red carpet in daring, classic, and simple looks. One of the stunners was Billy Porter who wore a suit that extended into a dress, trying to erase the stigmas of men having to wear a suit. Look at all of the looks here!

Whether your favorite part of award shows is the red carpet, the awards, or even the funny commentary, the Oscars have something for everyone and celebrate the stories and creations of amazing people.
