The biggest night in Hollywood returned with a bang, as the who’s who of the acting world gathered together to celebrate the achievements of global cinema.

It marked a big return for the Oscars with an event reminiscent of the pre-pandemic era. It was also the first time the awards show had an official host since 2019.

To make up for the last three years of an Oscars sans host, the Academy recruited three incredible women to lead the night: Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes.

The dapper suits were plentiful, as were the exquisite gowns, but what we were all keen to see was which stars came out on top.

With that, here’s the complete list of winners at the Oscars for 2022.
