Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, also made quite an impression during the event with six nominations and two major awards, including a Best Actress Oscar for Frances McDormand and a Best Supporting Actor award for Sam Rockwell.

After countless nominations for movies such as The Shawshank Redemption, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Unbroken, Sicario, and True Grit, renowned cinematographer Roger Deakins finally went home with an academy award, according to NBC News. The acclaimed filmmaker won the Oscar for Cinematography for his work on Blade Runner 2049. The movie also took home the award in the Visual Effects category.

While the night was filled with awkwardness and laughter from Jimmy Kimmel’s hilarious antics and jokes about female empowerment, Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek, and Annabelle Sciorra added a more serious note to the topic during their time on stage. The three actresses talked about how women should stand up and speak about the abuse they had experienced in Hollywood, similar to what they have already done.
