The 92nd annual Academy Awards brings to a close yet another awards season, one in which the main acting categories are led by performers who’ve run roughshod over their competition.

Here’s a minute by minute rundown of all the awards, and the action onstage at the Dolby Theater.

Having swept through awards season already are “Joker” star Joaquin Phoenix (best actor), “Judy” thespian Renee Zellweger (best actress), “Once Upon a Time” stalwart Brad Pitt (supporting actor) and “Marriage Story” scene-stealer Laura Dern (supporting actress). It’d be the first Oscars for Phoenix and Dern, and the first Academy acting honor for Pitt, who won as a producer for best picture “12 Years a Slave” in 2014. 

Here are all the real-time wins and highlights from the Oscar ceremony (in EST):

Brad Pitt won supporting actor at the 92nd Academy Awards.

8:14: The first award of the night, supporting actor, goes to Brad Pitt for Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. It’s his first acting Oscar. “Wow,” he says, “This is really incredible. Thank you, Academy, for the his honor of honors.” He gets a little political, saying his 45 seconds is 45 seconds more than John Bolton had to speak at President Trump’s impeachment trial. “I’m thinking Quentin does a movie about it and in the end, the adults do the right thing.” Pitt also shouts out stunt coordinators and say he’s been “gobsmacked” by thinking about his career “to stand here. Once upon in Hollywood? Ain’t that the truth.”

8:06: Steve Martin and Chris Rock come out to do a bit. Martin asks why the Oscars don’t have a host anymore and Rock quips, “Twitter.” Martin points out Brad Pitt and jokes, “It’s like looking in a mirror.” And Rock mentions Mahershala Ali is here and has won two Oscars: “You know what that means when the cops pull him over? Nothing.” The twosome jokes about Jeff Bezos, Joker and the female director snubs. “Do you know what was missing from this year’s Oscars?” Martin says, and Rock responds, “Vaginas.”
