Did you watch the Oscars last night?
If you did, you might still be trying to process all that was packed into the hostless, compact telecast from Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.
And if you skipped the spectacle, you missed the source of a thousand reaction gifs: Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s crackling performance of “Shallow.” The piece, from “A Star Is Born,” also won best original song.
Either way, here’s what else you need to know to credibly participate in today’s water cooler discussions.
“Green Book” won best picture, but a lot of people weren’t happy about it.
The movie came into the Academy Awards facing backlash on several fronts. First, critics — including The New York Times’s Wesley Morris in a great essay exploring the topic — said that the movie fell into the trap of racial reconciliation fantasy and cliché, glossing over painful history in favor of a feel-good narrative. The family of its subject, the pianist Don Shirley, publicly condemned the film. And there were other controversies surrounding various people involved with the film.
After it took the top honor, Spike Lee — whose “BlacKkKlansman” was also nominated and whose groundbreaking film “Do the Right Thing” was famously snubbed by the Academy — likened the win to a blown call by a referee at a basketball game.
Spike Lee finally took home a competitive Academy Award, though.
Dressed in a purple suit and wearing rings that paid tribute to “Do the Right Thing,” Mr. Lee gave a passionate, overtly political speech. Here’s the full text.
How did the no-host thing go?
By most accounts, it went fine. The show moved along at a steady clip after an opening performance by Queen, lately fronted by Adam Lambert.
Then, Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler gave a funny, brief “not” opening monologue, since they were, as they repeatedly pointed out, not hosting the show.
“Black Panther” and black women made history.
Hannah Beachler and Ruth E. Carter won Oscars for production design and costume design, respectively. They were the first African-American women to win in those categories.
Who else won the major categories?
You can check The Times’s list of winners here, but it’s worth noting that Glenn Close, now the most nominated actor without a statuette, did not win for best actress.
That, instead, went to Olivia Colman of “The Favourite,” who seemed genuinely shocked and pleased.

And Finally …
It’s easy to dismiss the clothes as a frivolous part of awards season. But like movies, the gowns, tuxedos and jewels are the products of someone’s vision and hard work.
This story, about how Olivia Colman’s gown came together after months of work with Prada, gives a glimpse into the process, which she described as sort of terrifying.
“Being someone else is easy; being me is torture during those events,” she said. So finding a gown that would make her feel excited to step out in front of cameras was a task.
Lately, though, the red carpet has become a more welcoming and diverse place, where stars — men, women and nonbinary — can use their clothes to make statements.
“Things have changed with the #MeToo moment,” Karla Welch, a seasoned Hollywood stylist, told The Times’s Guy Trebay. “There’s a lot more freedom, a lot more politics in the styling.”
