While South Korea’s “Parasite” scooped up four Oscars, other industry mavericks also garnered awards at the ceremony last February 9.
Joaquin Phoenix won his first Oscar for his turn in supervillain origin story “Joker,” the film that started the night with the most nominations.
Renee Zellweger sealed a remarkable comeback after six years away from the screen by winning best actress for “Judy,” her second Oscar win.
Brad Pitt also claimed his first acting Academy Award for his supporting turn in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood.”
“American Factory” — the first film from Barack and Michelle Obama’s production house, about a Rust Belt factory reopened by a Chinese billionaire — won best documentary.
The ceremony had no host for a second consecutive year, after last year’s batch of bright guest presenters caused a trend-bucking uplift in TV ratings.
