Parasite won big at the Oscars.

CJ Entertainment

We made it. After more than three hours of Oscars fare, from red carpet proceedings and Billie Eilish memes, to entertaining speeches and triumphant wins (mainly for Parasite), Hollywood's biggest night is done and dusted. It turns out our handy and totally accurate winner predictions weren't totally accurate after all. Mainly because Parasite did better than expected, and deservedly so.

So who won best picture? The history-making answer is in: The Oscars voters went for people's choice Parasite, its fourth gong of the night (it also took home best director for Bong Joon-ho, best international feature film and best original screenplay). The win makes Parasite the first ever film not in the English language to take the top prize in the ceremony's 92-year history.

The full, highly satisfying list of winners is below.

The outfit of the evening has to go to Natalie Portman.

Best actor winner (he's a shoo-in) Joaquin Phoenix and his sunglasses are here.

Four-time Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan has a new haircut (apparently that's causing a stir).

Florence Pugh fans, she's here.

The Last Jedi's Kelly Marie Tran is here. (You read that right: The Last Jedi.)

Billie Eilish will perform during the in memoriam segment of the night.

How dare they be so adorable? JoJo Rabbit's Roman Griffin Davis and Archie Yates have landed.

Laura Dern, who recently shone at the Film Independent Spirit Awards (for reasons other than winning awards), brought her mother along for the ride.

Director Spike Lee paid tribute to Kobe Bryant.

A lineup of the women who voice the non-English versions of Frozen's Elsa. This is definitely a moment.

Julia Butters, aka the child actress from Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood, brought her own food. She really is a genius.

Parasite alert: The cast and director Bong Joon-ho are here. Now give them everything they deserve.

He ran all the way here: 1917's brilliant George MacKay has made it to the red carpet.

Billy Porter gets the credit for first major red carpet moment with this phoenix-inspired couture.

Zazie Beetz arrived to represent Joker , this year's most-nominated film with 11 nods (it still probably won't win best picture).
