THE OSCARS 2016: Winners, Losers, & Most Talked About Moments

By on February 29, 2016

THE OSCARS(r) - PRESS ROOM - The 88th Oscars, held on Sunday, February 28, at the Dolby Theatre(r) at Hollywood & Highland Center(r) in Hollywood, are televised live by the ABC Television Network at 7 p.m. EST/4 p.m. PST. (ABC/Rick Rowell) LEONARDO DICAPRIO

The 88th Oscars rolled out last night, Sunday, February 28, at the Dolby Theater at Hollywood.

The presentation, hosted by Chris Rock, was televised live in over 225 countries and territories worldwide, and included an emotional performance from Lady Gaga, a hilarious but scathing attack on the industry from Rock over the lack of diversity in this (and previous) year’s nominations, and even a surprise visit by the bear from The Revenant, who foreshadowed Leo’s win for Best Actor on the night.

It also featured possibly the most awkward guest ever in the form of Stacy Dash, whom Rock introduced as “New Director for Minority Outreach.”

Dash, who recently made an appearance on Fox and Friends controversially advocated the abolition of  Black History Month, during a discussion on diversity, saying “We have to make up our minds. We have to have segregation or integration.”

However her appearance on the night, along with Rock’s intent, seemed to cause confusion among the mostly white audience, and the joke fell flat.

 

Rock himself, however, was on form as he let loose a series of on-point and devastating zingers on the topic of #oscarssowhite

“No black nominees? People are like, ‘Chris you should boycott, Chris you should quit.’ How come it’s only unemployed people that tell you to quit something?” the comic commented during his opening monologue.

“I thought about quitting. I thought about it really hard. But I realized they’re gonna have the Oscars anyway. They’re not gonna cancel the Oscars because I quit. And the last thing I need is to to lose another job to Kevin Hart, okay?”

And:

“This year, things are going to be a little different. This year, in the In Memoriam package, it’s just going to be black people that were shot by the cops on their way to the movies … yes I said it!”

 



For a complete (and exhaustive) rundown of the winners and losers on the night catch our guide below. We’ve also got an enormous red carpet gallery and a collection of the best gifs of the evening.
