Fun fact: 'Joker' fans believe a Heath Ledger Easter egg was hidden in the film

While "Joker" made numerous references to the Batman universe, fans believe the ambulances in the film, which bear a resemblance to Heath Ledger's Joker, are a nod to "The Dark Night." 

When did this become the Grammy Awards?

The guiding principle of the 92nd Academy Awards seems to have been borrowed from Jake Gyllenhaal's character in John Mulaney's recent Netflix special.

Good news! 'Downhill' might be really good!

Thanks to the onstage banter/timing/camaraderie of Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell while presenting best editing and best cinematography, we have been given hope: Their coming comedy, "Downhill," might be hilarious. Which, frankly, we all need. The movie, slated to open Friday, is the American version of "Force Majeure" (only a little lighter), and stars the two as a long-married couple. And frankly, I will gladly accept this. Some of us (hello) are going through real "Veep" withdrawal and are desperate for any version of President Selena Meyer, aka Julia Louis-Dreyfus, aka our queen.

'Ford v Ferrari' scoops up second award of the night

"Ford v Ferrari," an exhilarating racing drama and top-tier Dad Movie, drove off with the best editing award. It won for sound editing earlier in the night. (Honestly, that feels like hours ago.)

Roger Deakins wins for best cinematography

The physical assault it took to make World War I drama "1917" ensured there was no battle for the best achievement in cinematography Oscar. 

Roger Deakins won, as predicted, for the sheer technical achievement of shooting the film to look as if it was entirely shot in one take.

That it was done in seven- or eight-minute sequences and expertly stitched together to sell the illusion doesn't make it any less of a feat. 

It was the second Oscar for Deakins on his fourth nomination. 

President Obama sends congrats to doc co-produced by his company

"American Factory," winner of the best documentary feature award, was co-produced by Higher Ground Productions — the company founded by the Obamas.

This has descended into chaos.

Eminem? Randy Newman with no introduction? A boneless rap recapping the show?

We, your dedicated and steadfast livebloggers, are just as confused as you are. This broadcast has descended into chaos.

Another hour to go! Stay with us; we will try our best to make sense of it.

'Ford v Ferrari' wins what may be last Oscar for 20th Century Fox

The best sound editing Oscar, which that went to "Ford v Ferrari," could very well be the last Academy Award in 20th Century Fox's esteemed history.

Last year, Disney removed "Fox" from the name of the studio after buying it as part of a larger $71 billion deal for Fox's entertainment holdings. The movie division is now called 20th Century Studios. 

Over the course of its run, 20th Century Fox won 12 best picture Oscars on a 78 whopping nominations. 

'1917' gets its first trophy of the night

Sam Mendes' searing World War I drama, which could triumph in the best picture race at the end of the night, just picked up its first prize: best sound mixing.

Fun fact: '1917' was inspired by true events

Director Sam Mendes based the film on war stories told to him by his grandfather Alfred Mendes, who fought in World War I.
