This years’ Academy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel for the second year in a row, went off without a hitch: everyone was given their own award at the right time and no one tripped on the stairs. The pinnacle of the 2017 award season, these Oscars were perhaps the culmination of the Time’s Up movement that has been making its way through Hollywood and her award shows this year, a coalition of men and women endeavoring to raise awareness and legal funds to support those – most notably women – who have been affected by sexual harassment and inequality in the work place. As such, one of the most outstanding highlights of the night was the much overdue praise of women in the film industry. Frances McDormand in particular praised women in film by having all women nominated from any category stand and be recognized. Besides this, several slight changes were made to the general line up in order to honor women. First among these, Best Actress was the penultimate award, second to last that is, a position usually reserved for Best Actor (to the best of my knowledge). Women were also able to present the Best Actor and Best Actress awards, a task traditionally allocated to both men and women, where men usually presented the award for Best Actress and vice versa. But this year, Jennifer Lawrence and Jodie Foster presented the Best Actress Award, allegedly replacing last year’s Best Actor Winner Casey Affleck.

In keeping with the Time’s Up movement, the 90th Oscars were a momentous night for three women in particular. Mary J. Blige, also in her Oscar debut, was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her beautiful performance in Mudbound, a Netflix original film, and for her contributions to Best Original Song, Mighty River, from the same film. Director and writer Greta Gerwig was the only woman nominated for the trifecta – Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay – and the first woman in eight years to be nominated for best director (The Hurt Locker director Katheryn Bigelow in 2009 was the first and only woman to take home this award). Our third woman of the night was cinematographer Rachel Morrison, nominated for her work in Mudbound and known more widely for her efforts in this year’s box-office hit Black Panther, who was the first ever female to be nominated for achievements in cinematography. So, yeah. Go women!

But wait, there’s more! Here were some of the other highlights and fun facts from the 90th Awards. The beloved Jordan Peele made his Oscar debut in not just one, but the three illustrious categories aforementioned. Those who garner nominations for this trifecta are often old hats in the film industry, so for first time nominee Peele to receive such accolade and to win Best Original Screenplay, let’s just say we look forward to his next project.

In other news, it’s a long running joke that if you wind on in your acceptance speech for too long, the orchestra will play you off the stage. In order to incentivize brevity, in true game-show fashion, Kimmel promised a Jet-Ski to the winner with the shortest acceptance speech. Mark Bridges, who won Best Costume design for his work in Phantom Thread, was the lucky son of a gun to receive that timeless gem of a prize. We all know he was the real winner of the night.
