Joaquin Phoenix is best actor, Renee Zellweger best actress

Who are the big winners at the 92nd annual Academy Awards? This year’s (hostless) Oscars brings to a close yet another awards season, in which the main acting categories are led by performers who’ve run roughshod over their competition.

But we’re here to bring you all the excitement of the biggest night for movies.

For the top prize, best picture, Sam Mendes’ World War I thriller “1917” is the closest there is to a favorite, having won important Golden Globe, Producers Guild and Directors Guild awards. But Bong Joon-ho’s South Korean black comedy “Parasite” is vying to be the first foreign-language film to win, after snagging best director, best international film and best original screenplay.

Here’s a minute by minute rundown of all the awards, and the action onstage at the Dolby Theatre (in EST).

Renée Zellweger wins the Oscar for best performance by an actress in a leading role for her role in Judy Garland biopic "Judy."

11:14: Renee Zellweger takes best actress for “Judy,” a biopic of actress and singer Judy Garland. This past year “has been a really cool reminder that our heroes unite us,” she says. “When we look at our heroes, we agree and that matters.” One of those heroes, for her, is Garland, and Zellweger paid tribute to “her legacy of unique exceptionalism and inclusivity and generosity of spirit.”
