What were the other notable wins of the night?

Lady Gaga gave an emotional speech thanking co-star and director Bradley Cooper after she won her first Oscar, Best Original Song, for "Shallow" from A Star Is Born.

Surprisingly, veteran filmmaker Spike Lee had never won a competitive Oscar. That changed this year: His historical drama BlacKkKlansman, for which Lee was also a co-writer, won Best Adapted Screenplay.

Marvel also took home its first Oscar for the MCU. Megahit Black Panther finished the night with three awards.

What were the most note-worthy performances?

Adam Lambert and Queen kicked off the night with "We Will Rock You" and "We Are The Champions." Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper sang their megahit "Shallow."

What other moments had people talking?

Regina King and Rami Malek both had an eventful trip to the stage. In King's case, Captain America came to the rescue.

Actress Selma Blair made her first Oscars appearance since announcing that she has multiple sclerosis, earning praise and cheers on social media.

And of course the buzziest commercials moment was when Disney dropped a new Lion King trailer.

Who else was there?

Julia Roberts made a surprise appearance to present Best Picture, and her stunning pink gown was on trend.

Other presenters included an SNL trio of Tina Fey, Maya Rudolph and Amy Poehler, who bantered before announcing the first category.

Who hosted the Oscars?

There was no host this year.

Kevin Hart was initially announced as the show's host in early December, though he dropped out following online backlash against years-old homophobic tweets. After speculation that he might reconsider, Hart appeared on Good Morning America to say definitively that he would not be hosting and that he is done talking about the controversy.

This was the show's first time without a host in three decades.
