13 Oscar Records That Were Broken Last Night

We still haven’t recovered from last night’s Academy Awards ceremony. Not only can news sometimes be fake, it seems Best Picture announcements can be, too! Where’s a person to turn for the truth these days?

Last night’s Best Picture snafu was only one of many groundbreaking moments from the 2017 Oscars. Denzel Washington performed a marriage ceremony. Jimmy Kimmel recreated the opener to The Lion King with Sunny Pawar, a.k.a. the most adorable child of all time. Dev Patel and Lin Manuel Miranda brought their mothers as their dates to the ceremony, and the entire world sighed collectively.

But it wasn’t all just fun and games. The ceremony was bursting with record-shattering moments that will certainly prove significant for the winners' careers and resonate for ceremonies to come. Many of the awards doled out last night felt like signifiers of changing times.
