2020 Academy Awards: Every Must-See Moment That Went Viral on Social Media

Below are all the good, bad and viral moments that had Twitter talking.

The hottest names in film gathered at Hollywood and Highland on Sunday night for the 92nd Annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles.

The show once again went hostless, with performances expected from Billie Eilish, Elton John, Chrissy Metz, Randy Newman, Idina Menzel and Cynthia Erivo. Going into the event, "Joker" lead with most nominations including Best Picture, Directing and Actor for Joaquin Phoenix. Close behind were "The Irishman," "1917" and "Once Upon a Time … In Hollywood" with 10 noms each. "Jojo Rabbit," "Little Women," "Marriage Story" and "Parasite" all received six nominations.

Below are all the good, bad and viral moments that had Twitter talking.

Janelle Monae’s Opening Number

Janelle Monae kicked off the show with a musical medley, beginning with the theme song for Mr. Rogers, in honor of "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood," she then roared into an original number celebrating the biggest movies in the last year.

She was joined by Billy Porter, as they performed a bit of "I’m Still Standing," before she donned a "Midsommar" May queen flower cloak and got everyone to sing along with her — including Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Brie Larson and Erivo. She also made sure to point out all the "women who directed phenomenal films" — even if none were nominated — before wishing everyone a happy Black History Month.

Steve Martin and Chris Rock Roast the Academy

While there’s no host, the show began with a comedy bit from former onetime hosts Steve Martin and Chris Rock, who pulled no punches against the Academy itself.

"We both have hosted the Oscars before and this is such an incredible demotion," began Steve, before asking why the show doesn’t have anyone front it anymore. "Twitter," deadpanned Rock, referencing the Kevin Hart controversy from last year’s show. Martin then remarked there was "something missing" from this year’s nominees. Once again setting up Rock, Chris said, "Vaginas?"

Rock also joked that Erivo "did such a great job" as Harriet Tubman "hiding black people, the Academy got her to hide all the black nominees." He then asked, "Is Eddie Murphy under this stage?"

Brad Pitt Wins His First Acting Oscar

It was a big night for Brad Pitt who won the first award of the evening, his first acting Oscar ever. Picking up the Best Supporting Actor trophy for his work in "Once Upon a Time … In Hollywood," he joked, "They told me I only have 45 seconds out here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week."

He then thanked director Quentin Tarantino, before turning his sights to Leonardo DiCaprio. "I’ll ride your coattails any day," he said, "the view’s fantastic."

After giving love to stunt people in Hollywood who don’t get the recognition they deserve, he then gave a special shoutout to the children he shares with Angelina Jolie. He ended the speech saying, "This is for my kids, who color everything I do, I adore you."

Josh Gad Shades John Travolta

Introducing a killer performance of "Into the Unknown" from "Frozen II" with Idina Menzel and an army of Eslas who sang the song around the world, star Josh Gad poked fun at John Travolta’s Adele Dazeen gaffe from the 2014 Academy Awards.

"The iconic and brillaint Idina Menzel, pronounced exactly as it’s spelled is our Elsa," he joked in her intro. He also cracked about climate change deniers and said Canadian Elsa is just like the American one, "but with health care."

Watch her performance below, then see some of the best reactions:

Diane Keaton for Being Diane Keaton

It was just wonderful to see the delightful Diane Keaton share the stage with Keanu Reeves to present the award for

Sporting a black hat, matching nails and reminding us all they worked together on "Something’s Gotta Give," it was Keaton’s whole aura that really got Twitter talking — and hoping she could host everything ever going forward.

Whoa. Maybe they did end up together.

Kristen Wiig & Maya Rudolph Do Drama

In one of the night’s best bigs, Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph had everyone cracking up with they got on stage to present the Production and Costume Design trophies.

Beginning by saying they were "upset," "steamed" and "POed" about the night’s festivities, they then revealed they weren’t mad at all — but it was all "just an act." Wiig cracked, "We know there are a lot of directors here tonight," before Rudolph added, "and we just want them to know we do more than comedy!"

They then proved they could fight, cry and even sing — as they sang the Costume Design nominees with a hilarious medley. The bit and Billie Eilish’s confused reaction to it both went viral.
