Moonlight star Mahershala Ali made history as the first Muslim actor to win an Oscar, Viola Davis became the first black woman to win a Tony, Emmy and an Oscar for Fences, Syria and Iran saw representation, and Best Picture went to a film that told the story of a gay black man.

Moonlight won the Best Picture Oscar in a chaotic awards ceremony climax which mistakenly awarded the top honour to La La Land, and quickly retracted after, stunning all who watched the big night.

Casey Affleck won Best Actor for his portrayal of a grieving handyman in Machester By The Seaand Emma Stone walked away with Best Actress for La La Land.

Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, who boycotted the event in protest at Trump's travel ban, won Best Foreign Language Film for The Salesman.
