The Oscars last night gave out a lot of first! Regina King picked up her very first Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for, If Beale Street Could Talk. Another first, was Ruth E. Carter wining the first Black Woman to win for Best Costume Design for Black Panther.

Lady Gaga took home her first Oscar win for Best Original Song, “Shallow” from “A Star is Born ” Music and Lyric by Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.

Best Animated short went Domee Shi and Becky Neiman-Cobb for BAO, the Oscar missed talented Animators Andrew Chesworth and Bobby Pontillas for One Small Step, the youngest animators nominated since the launch of their very own animation studio Taikos. But, we are hopeful that this will spearhead more resounding creativity from such a talented group most notable for the last decade of animations movies including RIO, Frozen, Wreck it Ralph, Moana and more.

Overall, our favorite part of the night was the no annoying Oscar host and respective jokes. Can we do this every year? We are very OK with sacrificial Artificial Intelligence doing the announcements, they do not own a Twitter account.

Now for the moment, we have all been waiting for our Best Dressed!
