Chris Rock dug into #OscarSoWhite, Leonardio DiCaprio finally won his Oscar, and Lady Gaga brought one of the most moving moments to life at the Academy Awards Sunday. Take a look back at the biggest night in Hollywood with some of our favorite GIFs from the evening. Enjoy!

The night got started with Chris Rock's Oscar monologue, and he came out swinging, addressing diversity right off the bat.

A little later, Stacey Dash made her way onstage for the night's most awkward cameo in which she seemed oblivious to the fact that she was the punchline to a joke about the Oscars being too white. Most people seemed pretty confused about the whole thing, but The Weeknd looks like he got the joke.

In an extended bit about the difficulties black actors face in booking roles in Hollywood, black actors were inserted into some of this year's most nominated films. Here's Saturday Night Live's Leslie Jones playing the part of the bear in The Revenant

And here's Tracy Morgan punning on The Danish Girl.

The Revenant was one of the biggest movies of the night. Even the bear got its moment!

For some reason it looked like many audience members were refusing to clap for Jenny Beavan, who won Best Costume Design for her work on Mad Max: Fury Road.

Chris Rock gave an unfair advantage to his daughter's numbers bringing her out to sell some of her Girl Scout Cookies to the audience members.

No one bought as many of them as Suge Knight, though.

Star Wars droids C-3PO, R2-D2, and BB-8 appeared onstage during the show, and no one was more excited to see them than Jacob Tremblay.

Jacob also had the honor of appearing in one of this year's best Oscar selfies with Room co-star Brie Larson.

Sylvester Stallone was the favorite for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar, but lost out to Mark Rylance, and it was like seeing this all over again.

But Arnold Schwarzenegger still thinks he's the best.

Lady Gaga's performance of "'Til It Happens to You" was one of the most emotional moments of the night. She was joined onstage by dozens of rape survivors, who lent serious weight and meaning to the song.

Then Brie Larson hugged as many of them as she could as they came offstage.

Leonardo DiCaprio FINALLY won his Oscar, and he delivered his speech like he'd been practicing it since the first time he was nominated — for What's Eating Gilbert Grape 22 years ago.

Here's Kate Winslet's reaction to his speech:

Anyone notice that Michael Keaton starred in the Best Picture-winning movie for a second year in a row? No one was happier than him to see Spotlight beat frontrunner The Revenant for Best Picture.
