The Academy Award is an annual ceremony that recognizes great films that excelled as a whole or in certain aspects. To some people in the entertainment industry, receiving an Oscar is the pinnacle of their career. Wondering why? It is because it is the highest award that anyone from the filmmaking business can receive. And of course, if there are winners, there are also the losers. The Oscar moment for the former will be memorable, but for the latter, it will be a forgettable one. Since the award ceremony's inception in 1929, a lot of movies already received recognition, a lot of actors and actresses hailed the best, and crew behind the scenes rewarded for their effort. Fast forward to the 92nd Academy Awards, where there were a lot of unforgettable moments — some even historic! Let's check out some of them below!

The 92nd Academy Awards was a groundbreaking moment for Asian entertainment as the movie "Parasite" became the first foreign movie to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. But basically, the Korean film and its director Bong Joon-ho dominated the ceremony. "Parasite" won Bong the Oscar for the best director. But all in all, the movie won four major honors, including the best international feature and best original screenplay.
The statuette for Best Director might have come to "Parasite" director Bong Joon-ho, but he used his acceptance speech to revere his contemporaries. He gave a nod for his fellow nominees Todd Philips and Sam Mendes, but greatly emphasized The Irishman director, Martin Scorsese. He said during his time in the stage, “When I was young and studying cinema, there was a saying that I carved deep into my heart, which is, the most personal is the most creative. That quote is from our great Martin Scorsese.” After that, the audience gave Scorsese a standing ovation. What more could top this moment?
Everyone seemed to not know Eminem's surprise live performance during the 2020 Oscars. Almost everybody in the hall dropped their jaws when he performed his Academy Award-winning song, "Lose Yourself." It might seem ironic, but back in '03, when his film "8 Mile" won the Oscar for Best Original Song, he was not present to receive it. Then almost two decades later, he crashes the ceremony and shocks everyone. Afterward, he tweeted, "Look, if you had another shot, another opportunity... Thanks for having me @TheAcademy. Sorry it took me 18 years to get here." Meanwhile, celebrity reactions from Em's performance are starting to become memes.
Brad Pitt won the honor for Best Supporting Actor in the 92nd Academy Awards — giving him his first acting Oscar. In his speech, he said, “They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week.” He continued, “I’m thinking maybe Quentin does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing.” It was an allusion to U.S. President Donald Trump's impeachment trial. He continued with his political statements with the reporters backstage. Ultimately, Pitt gave a shout-out to the stunt coordinators and his co-actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
Joaquin Phoenix's depiction of the Clown Prince of Crime earned him the Academy Award for Best Actor. In his acceptance speech, he talked about the sociopolitical issues currently present in our society. It includes the misogyny, the racism which is still present in the film industry, ecological devastation, among others. Phoenix remembered his late brother River just as he was about to end his moment. While struggling to keep his composure, he quoted his dear sibling, "Run to the rescue with love, and peace will follow."
