• Frances McDormand won best actress for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”
• Gary Oldman won best actor for “Darkest Hour.”
• Allison Janney won best supporting actress; Sam Rockwell won best supporting actor.
A #MeToo moment
• Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek and Annabella Sciorra — three of Harvey Weinstein’s accusers — took the stage and introduced a segment highlighting the importance of diversity in film.
The red carpet
• Miss your favorite star’s arrival? From Saoirse Ronan and Jordan Peele (who took the award for best original screenplay), to the Olympic figure skaters Adam Rippon and Mirai Nagasu, you can see 69 of the stars here.
• A sexual harassment claim against Ryan Seacrest added uncertainty to the E! red carpet show. But as it turned out, Mr. Seacrest did not ask any questions about sexual harassment or pay equity, and the event could have fit in any prior year.
Jimmy Kimmel’s got jokes
• Wielding his dry, sardonic style, Mr. Kimmel delivered an opening monologue that took jabs at Mr. Weinstein, Mel Gibson and President Trump.
And he began this year’s show where last year’s left off.
“Last year, about a week before the show, the producers asked me if I wanted to do some comedy with the accountants,” he said. “And I said, ‘No, I don’t want to do comedy with the accountants.’ So, then the accountants went ahead and did comedy on their own.”
“And I have to hand it to them, it was hilarious,” he continued. “But it won’t happen again.”
You can read his whole monologue here.
And a word about “Lady Bird” …
Despite being nominated for five awards, the film that served as the director Greta Gerwig’s love letter to Sacramento came up empty-handed on Sunday.
“Snubbed,” as The Sacramento Bee put it.
Still, reporters for the newspaper described a jubilant, upbeat scene at a viewing party at St. Francis High School — Ms. Gerwig’s alma mater.
Most of the more than 200 people in the gymnasium whistled and cheered whenever Ms. Gerwig was mentioned or featured on camera, the newspaper said.
And, during a red carpet interview, she made sure to give them a shout-out.
“If anybody is watching in Sacramento, I love you guys,” she said. “I love you. I love you and I love St. Francis.”

And Finally …
There was another award show in Southern California this week that you would be forgiven for not knowing about.
As The Times reported, “Get Out” was the big winner Saturday at the Film Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica — a somewhat looser affair than the Oscars that was held inside a massive tent.
“Get Out” won best feature, and Mr. Peele took home the award for best director.
As at the Oscars, Ms. McDormand, Mr. Rockwell and Ms. Janney won acting prizes. But unlike at the Academy Awards, Timothée Chalamet won best male lead for his performance in “Call Me by Your Name.”
Another difference from the Oscars scene: Ms. McDormand accepted her Indie Spirit dressed in pajamas and fuzzy slippers.
