After over three hours of red carpet looks, entertaining performances, and triumphant wins we end the 92nd Academy Awards.  

This year’s big prize goes to Bong Joon-ho's Parasite—the first time, a film in a foreign language wins best picture. Bong also won awards for best director, best screenplay, best international feature, and the crowd loved it. The South Korean film director delivered three warmhearted speeches, quoting Martin Scorcese and thanking Quentin Tarantino for their inspiration and support.  

Overall the prizes went to the people’s favorites. Joaquin Phoenix won best actor in Joker and gave a bold speech about fighting injustice and animal cruelty. The other acting awards went to Renee Zellweger as best actress in Judy, Brad Pitt as best supporting actor in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Laura Dern as best supporting actress in Marriage Story 

The surprise of the night came when Eminem performed the Oscar-winning "Lose Yourself" from 8 Mile, while the audience bopped their heads and excitedly rapped along to the 2002 hit.
