Genre movies don’t always get recognised by big awards shows like the Oscars, but last night some Space favourites, their stars, and the teams that made those films got some serious attention from Academy voters. From the red carpet (Hel-lo, Captain Georgiou) to the show itself, here are the five Space-iest moments from last night’s Oscars.

Star Trek: Discovery’s Michelle Yeoh killing it on the red carpet

She may have been there thanks to her role in Crazy Rich Asians, but she’s forever Evil Terran Georgiou to us. And when she presented Best Animated Feature with Pharrell—how cool was that?!

Getting to see Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse earn its well-deserved Oscar

The animated film has been getting tons of buzz since its late 2018 release—and for good reason. Yeah, the animation is cool and groundbreaking, but seeing the diversity in the different incarnations of Spidey is even better. Also—Miles Morales rules, but Spider-Ham has our hearts forever.

Wardrobe designer Ruth Carter winning Best Costume Design for Black Panther

Carter, who got her start in film from fellow 2019 nominee Spike Lee, accepted the award for Best Costume Design for Black Panther, thanking Ryan Coogler for trusting her to tell the African American story in true superhero style. We also chatted with Carter about her now Oscar-winning designs last year—check out our interview here.

Black Panther winning yet another award, for Best Production Design

Wakanda Forever is right! Hannah Beachler (alongside set decorator Jay Hart) took the top prize for Production Design immediately after Ruth Carter’s win and had the cast and crew jumping out of their seats… and there was more to come. Ludwig Göransson would later win the Oscar for Best Original Score later that night.

Canada’s big Bao moment

Canadian animator Domee Shi and her producer Becky Neiman-Cobb had a huge win in the Best Animated Short category. Bao, which screened before Pixar’s Incredibles 2, was an instant hit with fans, but we’d never imagined that the little film about love and dumplings would make it all the way to the Oscars. We’re so excited that it did!
