The results for your favourite actor/actress to win big at the Oscars are here! Just as expected, a majority of you (55%) voted for Joaquin Phoenix, who took home Best Leading Actor for his menacing role in the Joker.

For 2nd and 3rd place, we see a close competition between Brad Pitt and Scarlett Johansson, but the former won by one vote. Pitt picked up Best Supporting Actor for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In.... Hollywood. He dedicated his award to his children, and is even contemplating a short ‘retirement’ after his big win.

The charismatic Scarlett Johansson shook us to tears in Netflix’s Marriage Story and Jojo Rabbit, for which she was nominated for Best Leading Actress and Best Supporting Actress respectively. Unfortunately, even as one of the world’s highest paid actresses in the world, her double nomination did not secure her a win at the Oscars. We’re as sad as you are.
