Joaquin Phoenix and Renee Zellweger won the top acting prizes, and both gave touching orations. While Joker star Phoenix spoke about the power of redemption and “the fight against injustice,” Zellweger offered up emotional remarks about the “unique exceptionalism” of Judy Garland, the late icon whom she portrayed in the biopic Judy.
Elsewhere, Parasite director Bong Joon Ho took home the top prizes for best original screenplay, director and picture. The South Korean effort also was named best international feature film. During his multiple acceptance speeches, the filmmaker joked about his plan to “drink until next morning,” but also grew serious when paying tribute to his native country and directing idol Martin Scorsese.
Brad Pitt won his first Oscar for his supporting role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and got political during his acceptance speech, taking a jab at the Senate for how it handled President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. Meanwhile, Laura Dern — who was tapped as best supporting actress for Marriage Story — gave a heartwarming shout-out to her actor parents, Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd.
