Oppenheimer won the Oscar for Best Picture at the 96th Academy Awards Sunday night while the film’s writer-director Christopher Nolan, won best director, and star Cillian Murphy won best actor. Robert Downey Jr. won best supporting actor for his role in the film, the story of Robert J. Oppenheimer’s race with Nazi Germany to create an atomic bomb — and his desperate efforts to contain its power afterwards.

Oppenheimer won seven Oscars in total, the most of any film this year. Murphy, Downey and Nolan were all first-time Oscar winners.

Other highlights include Wes Anderson winning his first Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film, “The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar”; Emma Stone, winning her second Best Actress Oscar for Poor Things following her first Best Actress win in 2017 for La La Land, and Da’Vine Joy Randolph winning her first Oscar, for best supporting actress, for her role in The Holdovers.

The night was full of humor thanks to host Jimmy Kimmel, who cracked some hilarious jokes to start out the night strong during the opening monologue, before closing things out with a strong joke at the expense of former President Donald Trump, who didn’t think much of the show.

There was also an appearance from a mostly naked John Cena and a great live performance of the Barbie song “I’m Just Ken” by Ryan Gosling.
