It was a historic night at the 92nd Academy Awards, where the class satire "Parasite" became the first foreign-language film to be named best picture.

LOS ANGELES -- "Parasite" has won the best picture Oscar, becoming the first foreign-language film to take home the biggest honor in film. Bong Joon Ho's class satire has been one of the season's darlings, despite failing to garner any Academy Award nominations for its cast.

The 92nd Academy Awards are a wrap at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Here's everything you need to know from fashions to nominees and winners.

Who won the top prizes?

"Parasite" not only won best picture but also the night, taking home a total of four Oscars.

Joaquin Phoenix took home his first Oscar. He won best actor in a leading role for his performance in "Joker." With 11 nominations, "Joker" only landed one other win for best score.

Another acting frontrunner, Renee Zellweger won the best actress Oscar for her portrayal of Judy Garland.

Brad Pitt finally has his acting Oscar. The four-time nominee won the best supporting actor Oscar for his role as a stuntman in "Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood." Pitt called the win "incredible" and used his winning speech to call out the Senate's impeachment trial.

Laura Dern won an Oscar for best supporting actress for her role in "Marriage Story." She thanked her parents in a heartfelt acceptance speech. "Some say you never meet your heroes, but I say if you're really blessed, you get them as your parents." She was also nominated in three other categories.

Director Bong, as the Korean filmaker's American audience has lovingly nicknamed him, was also named best director.

What were the other notable wins of the night?

"Parasite" won its first Oscar of the night for best original screenplay, becoming the first-ever Korean film to take home the award.

While "1917" didn't win best picture, the film still walked away with three awards for best cinematography, best sound mixing and best visual effects.

Two other films that were also up for best picture, "Ford v Ferrari" and "Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood," finished the night with two awards each.

What were the night's big fashion moments?

Billy Porter did it again! He rocked the red carpet with a design dazzling in gold feathers. Lauren Dern shined in pink as she arrived on the carpet with her mom, Diane Ladd.

On an Oscars red carpet filled with dramatic dresses and designer tuxedos, Spike Lee and Natalie Portman wore clothing that made a personal and political statement.

Lee paid tribute to the Kobe Bryant in a Lakers-purple jacket with the late basketball star's 24 on its lapels and on the back, while Portman wore the names of snubbed female directors on her cape.

What were the most noteworthy performances?

Janelle Monae and Billy Porter kicked off the night with a colorful performance. Before leaving the stage, Monae made sure to call out the Academy for failing to acknowledge female filmmakers in the best director category. "We celebrate all the women who directed phenomenal films," she said.

Eminem hit the stage for a surprise performance of "Lose Yourself," which won him an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2003.

Billie Eilish rocked the 2020 Oscars with somber performance during In Memoriam segment. The 18-year-old also performed "Yesterday" by The Beatles alongside her producer-brother Finneas during the portion of the ceremony, which comes just days after the death of Kirk Douglas, one of the last surviving stars of Hollywood's golden age. Kobe Bryant, a 2018 Oscar winner for the short "Dear Basketball," was also included in the segment.

Elton John, Randy Newman and Cynthia Erivo, Idina Menzel and Chrissy Metz were among other performers at the 92nd Academy Awards. The Oscars telecast also featured an appearance by Questlove.

What other moments had people talking?

Two former Oscar hosts, Chris Rock and Steve Martin, dropped in to supply an opening monologue. Martin called it "an incredible demotion." Martin noted that something was missing from this year's directing nominees. "Vaginas!" Rock replied.

While many speeches highlighted the struggle for women in Hollywood, one woman is paving the way in her industry. Eimear Noore became the first female conductor of the Oscar's orchestra in its 92 year history. "Joker's" Hildur Guonadottir also won best original score and used her speech to share a message to the women watching the award show.

"Please speak up. We need to hear your voices," she said.
