Oscars 2023: Here's everything you might have missed at the 95th Academy Awards

It was definitely a night to remember!

Tonight is one of the biggest, sparkliest and most glamorous events in the Hollywood calendar - it's time for the Oscars 2023. 

The 95th Academy Awards takes place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, with the A-listers gathering in their hundreds to see who will be awarded the honour of a coveted golden statuette - and for some, they'll be hoping to take one home themselves. 

The celebrities have already started arriving on the Oscars red carpet - although it's a champagne hue this year - with Winnie Harlow wearing a bold yellow Armani Privé gown and Ashley Graham in a stunning sheer black Alberta Ferretti dress.

Joining them are the likes of Austin Butler, Michelle Yeoh and Paul Mescal who have been nominated for acting award, and films like Elvis, Everything Everywhere All At Once and The Banshees of Inisherin are all up for the prestigious Best Picture award. 

We're covering the night live right here - so stay tuned for the biggest moments from the most important night in Tinseltown.

This year, the Oscars red carpet is actually champagne, darling. And the celebrities have most definitely arrived. 

Cara Delevingne looks incredible in a red couture Ellie Saab gown, and she is positively oozing Hollywood glamour. It's a yes from us.

Many have noticed that this year, the Oscars red carpet is, in fact, not red. 

Instead, organisers decided to opt for a champagne hue instead - and apparently, it's already getting a little bit mucky. 

According to Variety, pieces of the carpet have been quickly cut and reinstalled in certain places to ensure that the stars aren't photographed next to marks. 

But it definitely does brighten things up - what do you think of it?

Rihanna has arrived! 

Looking incredible in a black sheer Alaia gown with a cut out around her growing baby bump, Rihanna was one of the last to arrive on the champagne carpet.

Ke Huy Quan has won the award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Everything Everywhere All At Once. 

The actor received a standing ovation when he was announced as the winner, and made an incredibly touching acceptance speech where he told everyone watching: "Never give up on your dreams."

Tearing up yet? Same.

Jamie Lee Curtis has picked up the Best Supporting Actress award for her performance in Everywhere Everything All At Once.

Just moments before, her co-star Ke Huy Quan took home the Best Supporting Actor statuette, making it a double win for Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert's film just three awards in!

During her acceptance speech, she dedicated her award to everyone who worked on the film, as well as her parents who were both actors.

Jimmy Kimmel's opening monologue definitely ruffled some feathers. 

At the start of the ceremony the host made a number of digs at Will Smith, telling the audience: "If anyone commits an act of violence anytime during this show, you will be presented the Oscar for Best Actor and be permitted to give an 18-minute long speech."

But it wasn't just the King Richard actor that Kimmel roasted - he also made a quip at the expense of the Babylon cast. 

He said: "There are some things that movies can do that TV just can’t. For example, a TV show can’t lose $100 million. Is the gang from Babylon here? They know."

Everything Everywhere All At Once fever is going strong.

Not only has the film already picked up awards tonight, but Stephanie Hsu - who plays Joy - joined Talking Heads singer David Byrne to belt out This Is a Life live at the Oscars. 

But there was one part of the performance that has tickled fans of the film. If you didn't spot it (seriously, where were you looking?!) Byrne sported some large, wobbling hot dog fingers.

So, who else has taken home an award so far tonight?

The Best Documentary Feature award went to Navalny, with An Irish Goodbye picking up the gong for Live Action Short Film and Ruth Carter winning the Best Costume Design for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

The award for Makeup and Hairstyling went to the team behind The Whale starring Brendan Fraser, and James Friend took the statuette for Cinematography in All Quiet on the Western Front.

Have you spotted the celebrities wearing blue ribbons?

It's a theme that the A-listers have continued throughout awards season, and there's an important reason why

Cate Blanchet, Colin Farrell and Michelle Yeoh have worn the blue ribbons over the last few months, and tonight Billy Nighy was asked why he had decided to wear one too - and whether it is a political statement. 

He explained: "120 million people being displaced and children being in terrible distress, I don't think that is politics. And that is what this commemorates.

“It is a UN initiative. I wear it at the request of Cate Blanchett who wants to focus on that issue wherever we go publicly.”

Lady Gaga stunned attendees and viewers with an emotional performance of Hold My Hand from Top Gun: Maverick, which has been nominated for an Oscar. 

Before the song, she said: "You might find that you can be your own hero, even if you feel broken inside."

Paring back her look in a black t-shirt and Converse while wearing no make-up - a contrast to her earlier full-glam and sheer Versace gown - Gaga's stripped back look was just as stunning as her performance. 

It garnered a standing ovation from the audience - and it was truly deserved. 

Rihanna was next to wow the crowd with a beautiful performance of Lift Me Up from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

She was a sparkling dream as she belted out the Oscar nominated song, and the audience once again rushed to their feet for another standing ovation. 

What a night of incredible performances!

It finally happened...

As the night went on, it became very clear that Everything Everwhere All At Once was on a roll with an incredibly impressive six Academy Awards, including Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Actress, Best Original Screenplay, Best Film Editing and Best Director.

So when it came to the Best Picture award, it seemed fitting that the film picked up the seventh award of the night. 

What a great night for the film!
