It was quite a night of entertainment during the 96th annual Oscars

HOLLYWOOD, CA (WOAY)- “And the Oscar Goes to…”

The biggest night in Hollywood has come to a close. The 96th Academy of Motion Picture and Sciences Awards, better known as the Oscars, was held on March 10th at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Going into the awards, “Oppenheimer” led the charge with 13 nominations with “Poor Things” in a close second with 11. “Oppenheimer” continued their winning streak with the most awards per show, as they left with 7 Oscars on top of their multiple SAG and BAFTA wins.

“And, may I see Oppenheimer,” said Al Pacino when announcing “Oppenheimer” as Best Picture.

“Oppenheimer” most noteably took home Leading Actor for Cillian Murphy, Directing for Chris Nolan, and Best Picture. With the many “Oppenheimer” wins, it was the first Oscars win for both Nolan and Robert Downey Jr. in their respective categories.

“I have so many people to thank, the most incredible cast,” said Chris Nolan, Director of “Oppenheimer.”

“Chris knew it, Emma made sure that she surrounded me with one of the great cast and crews of all time. Emily, Cillian, Matt Damon, Blunt it was fantastic. And I stand here before you a better man because of it,” said Robert Downey Jr.

“Poor Things” stayed in a close second with wins as they left with 4, including Best Actress in a Leading Role for Emma Stone.

“Yes. I was very shocked. I still feel like I’m spinning a little bit, so. Yes, it was it’s it’s a huge honor. And I’m very yes, I’m very surprised,” explained Stone in a post win interview.

The night included various jokes from the host to presenters on a variety of topics including making jabs at the lengths of this year’s films.

“There are so many great movies that held audiences captive this year,” said Jimmy Kimmel, the host of this year’s Oscars. “And I mean that literally. Your movies were too long this year.”

John Cena even came on stage only using his envelop to cover himself to present an award. The most notable performance in the show was by the Ken cast of “Barbie” in the song “I’m Just Ken.”
