It’s finally here, one of our favourite nights of the year… Oscar night. We have been patiently waiting for Hollywood’s biggest night to arrive: the 88th Academy Awards.

The Oscars are part of the biggest night in Hollywood. The parties are epic and not to mention, it’s quite the privilege to win one of those golden guys.

Chris Rock hosted the kudocast that featured musical performances from Lady Gaga, Sam Smith, and more.

From West Coast, the winners for all 24 categories were announced. The Oscars this year have been plagued with negativity as the Academy was called out for its lack of diversity with the nominees, something the Academy has addressed in the past few weeks, and looks to make changes to for next year.

That being said, was there joy for Joy tonight for Jennifer Lawrence? Did Carol sweep? Was this Leo’s year? 

Check out the winners below.
