Live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, the Academy Awards was back for its 90th year!
Once again, it was time to give out Hollywood’s most prestigious awards to the deserving movies of the past year. But it was also so much more than that.
Following the Golden Globes, tonight’s awards ceremony was no less politically-charged. Here are the highlights from the night we’ll remember for years to come.

Hollywood has had its share of scandals, so perhaps a slew of emotional montages was the best thing to remind everyone that movies can sometimes be powerful forces for good. After all, the power of media and film to shape perceptions and break stereotypes cannot be discounted. And true enough, the montages that really stood out were the montages dedicated to women and diversity– which went on to set the tone for the rest of the night.
