Bulgaria: The Winners of this Year's Oscar twitter.com

On Sunday night, Jimmy Kimmel welcomed us to the 90th Academy Awards—a landmark evening that made history in a variety of wayseven before the first awards were handed out—with an opening monologue that balanced biting, Time’s Up-moment jokes with more standard, glad-handing humor. We had a good feeling about who seemed most likely to win some of the night’s biggest prizes—and were proven right with the first award of the evening, the best-supporting-actor prize, which went to Sam Rockwell.

In fact, most of the awards handed out throughout the night went to the people widely expected to win, after a longer-than-usual awards season that made the prediction game a little easier to play. (Thank the Olympics for pushing the Oscar telecast into March.) Frances McDormand won her second best-actress prize for her searing work in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, delivering the night’s most memorable speech in response; Gary Oldman got his long-awaited Oscar for Darkest Hour; and The Shape of Water walked away with best picture and director, inspiring a pair of passionate speeches from Guillermo del Toro.

There was, however, a bit of room for surprises—as when Jordan Peele took home a best-original-screenplay award, accepting it with a heartfelt speech that highlighted how many times he had almost abandoned the project that ended up winning him his first Oscar. Not quite as surprising as last year’s historically chaotic ceremony, perhaps—but plenty entertaining nonetheless.

Below, find a list of all the night’s winners, in the order in which they were announced onscreen.
