Every moment that is delighting -- or infuriating -- Oscars viewers at home.
It was all Oscars all day on Sunday as the Academy Awards took over Twitter well before the show began. From red carpet looks to monumental wins and all those unsung moments in between, the social media platform didn't miss a beat.
Billy Porter certainly turned heads with his one-of-a-kind red carpet look, while "Black Panther" and "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" put Marvel into the Oscars pantheon for the first-time ever, while breaking ground for black women as well.
There were huge moments on the stage (Melissa McCarthy and Brian Tyree Henry slayed their presenter opportunity), just shy of it; as when Chris Evans graciously helped Best Supporting Actress winner Regina King to the stage, and after winning; as Spike Lee literally lept into the arms of Samuel L. Jackson following his first-ever win.
Just like our winner's list, we'll be updating this live throughout the night.
Chris Evans Wins Best at Supporting Actress
Regina King won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in "If Beale Street Could Talk," but it was Chris Evans who won the award for Best at Supporting Actress for his gracious and gentlemanly assist. The "Avengers" star quickly hopped out of his seat as it looked like King's shoe was caught in her dress even as she was trying to stand up. Luckily, she was already in the front row, but he stayed with her until he was sure she was good, then allowing her to enjoy her well-deserved Oscar moment.

Billy Porter Owns the Red Carpet
Billy Porter got everyone's attention by defying traditional men's fashion with a bold Christian Siriano tuxedo dress. This awards season has been highlighted by fashion-forward men stepping beyond the boundaries of the limited choices most men face in high fashion. The cast of "Black Panther" has been pushing those lines all year long, but Porter's bold choice here practically shatters the fashion ceiling for men and says that men's fashion might just be worth paying as much attention to as who the women are wearing.
When you come to the Oscars, you must dress up. Thanks @CSiriano for creating this custom couture masterpiece. @OscarHeymanBros you have outdone yourselves with your iconic jewels.

Melissa McCarthy and Brian Tyree Henry Redefine Fashion
If you can say one thing about @melissamccarthy and Brian Tyree Henry, it's that their tribute to costume designers embodies *subtlety*. See more surprises at the #Oscars LIVE on ABC! pic.twitter.com/UTlCmJlpVz— ABC (@ABCNetwork) February 25, 2019
Did you know that true fashion includes small rabbits on the train of your dress and an adorable bunny puppet? Well, you do now if you were lucky enough to see Melissa McCarthy and Brian Tyree Henry come out as the best-dressed presenters of the night. McCarthy showed up in a pantsuit on the red carpet but she put the extra on extra with a quick change into this wild ensemble. And Brian Tyree Henry was every bit as over-the-top with his look, but the hand puppet just stole all the attention away from him, as did McCarthy's fierce expression.

Marvel Studios Scores First-Ever Oscars
There have been 20 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, the most successful film franchise of all time. And yet, since 2008 these films had not won a single Oscar among them. All of that changed quickly on Sunday night as "Black Panther" took home three awards, for Best Production Design (Hannah Beachler), Best Costume Design (Ruth Carter) and Best Score (Ludwig Göransson). On top of that momentous achievement, it's a huge moment for representation as Carter and Beachler are only the second and third black women to win Oscars outside of the acting categories. "Black Panther" is clearly still breaking ground for diversity.

Having a real “representation matters” moment watching a vulnerable nerd like Hannah Beachler win for Production Design for Black Panther. Cool. She is cool. I will be thinking about her all week.— amber ruffin (@ambermruffin) February 25, 2019

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's Intimate Performance
In a unique moment in Oscars history, two acting nominees rose from their seats in the front row to take the stage and perform the nominated song from their film. It was the perfect way to set the stage, literally, as Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper invited everyone into their beautiful kinship that grew through the making of "A Star Is Born." The energy was palpable and Twitter was immediately moved to tears, with some of them thinking maybe that tension was a little too sexual. And it wasn't much longer that that breakout performance proved it wasn't just a fluke, as Gaga took home her first Oscar for Best Original Song.

The look Lady Gaga gave to Bradley Cooper at the end of that performance was the live version of Nala looking at Simba in Lion King. She gonna feel the love tonight. #oscars pic.twitter.com/Y5aabH5LWe— chew (@chewgaggiano) February 25, 2019

Spike Lee Finally Wins
Honorary Oscars are nice, but there's nothing like winning one outright, and that's finally what happened for Spike Lee when the director won Best Adapted Screenplay, alongside fellow screenwriters Kevin Willmott, David Rabinowitz, and Charlie Wachtel. The director was so excited he literally jumped into the arms of longtime friend and presenter Samuel L. Jackson, who put a wrestling-quality shoutout on Lee's name when announcing his win. To say there was a lot of energy in the air would be a huge understatement. And Lee used his platform to push forward the important conversations that need to be happening, even urging viewers and voters to "do the right thing" in 2020.

It makes me feel so proud to see Spike Lee win an Oscar. I remember when he was making Malcolm X. I believed in it so much that I invested in it. Huge congratulations to Spike!!!— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) February 25, 2019
Spike Lee's first (and overdue) win was a period film rooted in the reality of today. Not long after Charlottesville, BlacKkKlansman reminded us that we're never going to get anywhere on race in this country until we have honest, painful conversations. #Oscars— Rashad Robinson (@rashadrobinson) February 25, 2019
Everyone is texting me asking what Spike Lee said that was bleeped... he began his speech by saying “Do not turn that motherfucking clock on!” And they sure didn’t— Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) February 25, 2019

Olivia Colman's Daffy, Charming Victory Speech
Olivia Colman gives an acceptance speech by turns heartfelt, hysterical, genuine, and inspiring.— ABC News (@ABC) February 25, 2019
"Any little girl who's practicing her speech on the tele—you never know!" https://t.co/zSrvQG8ZE6 pic.twitter.com/3viuHkcN41
No one was as surprised to hear Olivia Colman's name read out of that envelope than Olivia Colman. The British actress and star of "The Favourite" nearly collapsed in shock upon finding out she'd won Best Actress -- and beat favorite Glenn Close in the process. Even better than that, though, was her charmingly silly and sweet speech, where she thanked everyone in association with the film, thanked Lady Gaga and threw a raspberry at the teleprompter telling her to wrap it up. For many Americans, this was their first introduction to the British star and she couldn't have been more warm and endearing.
Olivia Colman, you beauty!!!— Hugh Laurie (@hughlaurie) February 25, 2019
Olivia Colman just knocked all the snark off Twitter! Best speech in ages! If you haven't watched Broadchurch yet, what is wrong with you?— Danny Zuker (@DannyZuker) February 25, 2019
