The glamour! The gowns! The glory! It must be the 90th Academy Awards. Hollywood's best and brightest gathered at the Dolby Theatre on March 4 to fete the year's top cinema. From the aquatic love story "The Shape of Water" (with a field leading 13 nominations) to the gritty war drama "Dunkirk" to the horror flick "Get Out," it was a wide-ranging field. And, of course, two-time host Jimmy Kimmel was on hand to oversee all the proceedings.
Here, are all the best moments from the 2018 Oscars, from the red carpet to the closing credits.

Cream of the CropShades of champagne, ivory, and bright white — like those worn by Allison Williams and Laura Dern — dominated the red carpet. Other fashionistas in on the trend? Gina Rodriguez, Jane Fonda, and Janet Mock, just to name a few.

Pops of ColorOf course, not every starlet opted for neutrals. Giving us a taste of the rainbow was Viola Davis in pretty pink and Nicole Kidman in beautiful cobalt blue.

"We'll remember this as the year that men screwed up so badly women started dating fish," Kimmel joked in his opening monologue. It's a quip that typified the comedian's opener — flicking at #TimesUp wokeness while roasting the night's nominees. But Kimmel said, ultimately, the night would be one of positivity. And he set a few ground rules. No. 1: Don't get up right away when you hear your name called. No. 2: Keep your speech short. In fact, he promised the shortest-speech-giver would win a Jet Ski.

Kimmel warned that those winners not vying for a Jet Ski would be played off in a new, unique way: by Lakeith Stanfield yelling his signature line from Jordan Peele's nominated film. "Get out, Best Actor!" "Get out, Best Actress!"

Blige made Oscar history by becoming the first person to be nominated in both acting and music categories for the same film. She took the stage to perform her powerful song "Mighty River" from "Mudbound."

First-time winner Allison Janney had a little fun with her best supporting actress acceptance speech for her portrayal of Tonya Harding's mother LaVona in "I, Tonya" before turning sincere. "Nothing could be further from the truth," she continued, going on to thank a litany of colleagues and friends. (No Jet Ski for her!)

In a bid to thank the everyday movie-goer for supporting the industry, Kimmel recruited an army of stars — including Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Mark Hamill, Lupita Nyong'o, and Lin-Manuel Miranda — to surprise a "Wrinkle in Time" preview audience across the street with gratitude...and snacks.

The "Get Out" writer and director took home the statue for best original screenplay. "I thought it was impossible," Peele said in his acceptance speech of getting the movie made. "I thought it wasn't going to work. I thought no one would ever make this movie... I want to dedicate this to all the people who raised my voice and let me make this movie."

The actress won her second Oscar for her performance in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri." On stage, she called for all of the night's female nominees to stand, and for studio executives to help tell their stories. "I have two words to leave with you tonight," she said. "Inclusion rider."

With all of the statues dispensed, there was still one very important bit of business to be done — award that Jet Ski. Turns out, "Phantom Thread" costume designer Mark Bridges delivered the shortest acceptance speech of the night. In the indelible words of Kimmel: "See you in Havasu, Mark!"
