It’s been a wild awards season leading up to this year’s Oscars. Who would have expected that the hottest feud to emerge would be between Jane Campion and Sam Elliott? Or that the showdown for Best Picture would come down to two streaming films — The Power of the Dog and CODA — with classic awards bait like Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast struggling to get traction?
While the ceremony itself was quite a ride, this year’s Oscars winners fell along lines predicted by many prognosticators, with Dune dominating in the technical categories, Troy Kotsur and Ariana DeBose breaking ground with their supporting actor and actress wins for CODA and West Side Story respectively.
In addition, Will Smith did take home his long-awaited Best Actor prize, delivering a teary speech that served as an apology for his earlier blow-up with Chris Rock, while Jessica Chastain also won her first Best Actress Oscar for The Eyes of Tammy Faye.
Meanwhile, Billie Eilish and Finneas beat out Beyonce and Lin-Manuel Miranda for Best Original Song (for the title song for No Time to Die), Hans Zimmer won Best Score for Dune, and of course, CODA took home the big prize of the night, along with additional awards. Check out the full list below.
