However, there were some Irish wins! Ross White and Tom Berkeley’s An Irish Goodbye won Best Live-Action Short.
While Tallaght native Richard Baneham took home his second visual-effects Oscar for his work on Avatar: The Way of Water.

This was Kimmel's third time hosting the ceremony.
In his opening monologue, the late night chat show host made a joke about Ireland, and its many nominations.
He said, "It was some year for diversity and inclusion, we have nominees from every corner of Dublin."
The host continued, "Five Irish actors are nominated tonight which means the odds of another fight on stage just went way up."
Jimmy also referenced the Will Smith slap drama from last year's ceremony.
He told the star-studded crowd, "We have strict policies in place."
"If anyone in this theatre commits an act of violence at any point in this show, you will be awarded the Oscar for Best Actor and permitted to give a 19 minute long speech."
Watch his full opening monologue here:
Jenny the donkey
During last night's ceremony, Kimmel walked out on stage with Jenny the donkey from The Banshees of Inisherin.
"Not only is Jenny an actor, she's a certified emotional support donkey."
"Or at least that's what we told the airline to get her on a plane from Ireland."

Rihanna took to the stage for an incredible performance of her hit Lift Me Up from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack.
The track was nominated for Best Song but unfortunately she lost out to Naatu Naatu from the film RRR.
Lady Gaga takes to the stage
Lady Gaga made a surprise performance of Hold My Hand, her Oscar nominated song from Top Gun: Maverick.
She opened her performance by saying, "It's deeply personal for me. I think that we all need each other. We need a lot of love to walk through this life."
"We all need a hero sometimes — there's heroes all around us in unassuming places. But, you might find that you could be your own hero even if you feel broken inside."
