It's the culmination of awards season, and the biggest night in the film industry's collective calendar. The 94th annual Academy Awards, otherwise known as the Oscars, have finally arrived and this year will be remembered for a long, long time to come.

It was certainly a more dramatic night than anyone could have anticipated. The ceremony was overshadowed by a Best Actor win for King Richard star Will Smith, just minutes after a very dramatic confrontation with Chris Rock. Dune was the big winner of the night - taking home six Academy Awards. CODA was definitely the underdog in this Oscar race. After only being nominated for just three Oscars, they walked away with the acclaimed Best Picture gong. Jessica Chastain won her first Oscar for best actress in a leading role, for her performance in The Eyes of Tammy Faye. Ariana DeBose, who has continued to sweep the 2022 awards season, took home the best actress in supporting role award for West Side Story.

The awards have now all been dished out so, here is the full winners list:
