Triple Trouble: Tina Fey, Maya Rudolph And Amy Poehler Hit The Stage

Three of Hollywood's funniest hit the stage together as the show's first official presenters and tackled everything from Trump's wall, to the popular movie category, as well as what their opening monologue would be had they hosted the show.

"We're not your hosts, but we're going to stand here a little too long so that the people who get USA Today tomorrow will think that we hosted," joked Fey.

"There is no host tonight, there won't be a Popular Movie Category and Mexico is not paying for the wall," added Rudolph, before Poehler joked, "And we won't be doing awards during the commercials, but we will be presenting commercials during the awards."

Melissa McCarthy and Brian Tyree Henry Serve Looks As They Present Best Costume Design

Getting into the spirit of the award show, Melissa McCarthy and Brian Tyree Henry dressed in a costume that seemed to be a mash-up of The Favourite, Mary Queen of Scots, Mary Poppins Returns and Black Panther, with McCarthy’s extravagant gown covered in plush rabbits.

Black Panther's Back-To-Back Wins

While it didn't take out Best Picture, Black Panther still managed to make history -- twice. Early on in the ceremony, Ruth E. Carter won Best Costume Design, becoming the first black woman to win an Oscar in a non-acting category in more than 30 years.

"Marvel may have created the first black superhero," Carter said, "but through costume design, we turned him into an African king."

After Carter's win, Hannah Beachler won for her work on Black Panther, becoming the first black woman to be nominated and win in the Production Design category.

Taking out one of the top awards for his role as legendary Queen singer Freddie Mercury, Rami Malek was stunned as he picked up the coveted statue for Best Actor, and fans went wild over the star's well-deserved win -- as well as the sweet moment in which he kissed partner and co-star Lucy Boynton.

Taking the stage, a shocked Malek told the audience, "Oh my God, my mom is in here somewhere. Oh, I love you. I love you, lady," he said, before getting emotional. "My dad didn't get to see me do any of this, but I think he's looking down on me right now. This is a monumental moment, one I'm so appreciative to all of you [for], to everyone who had a hand in getting me here."

Arriving to the stage in tears, Coleman told the crowd, “It’s genuinely quite stressful. This is hilarious.” Thanking cast, family, and friends, she apologised to her competition, saying, “Glenn Close, you’ve been my idol for so long, and this is not how I wanted it to be,” Colman said tearfully, as Close laughed. “I think you’re amazing and I love you very much.”

Wrapping up her speech, she gave a shout out to her children at home. “My kids, if you’re home and watching -- well, if not, well done. But I sort of hope you are, this is not going to happen again.”

Green Book Shocks As It Takes Out Best Picture

After many thought that A Star Is Born or Bohemian Rhapsody would be the most likely winners to take out the top award, viewers were left shocked when, instead, Green Book won Best Picture.

“The whole story is about love,” said director Peter Farrelly during the acceptance speech for the win. “It’s about loving each other despite our differences and finding out the truth about who we are: We’re the same people.”

Until next year!
