Are you ready for the Oscars Sunday? 

Bong Joon Ho won for Best Director for "Parasite," beating the others. His movie also won him Best Picture. "Parasite" seemed to sweep the awards.

Joaquin Phoenix won the Best Actor award for "Joker."

Renée Zellweger won Best Actress for her portrayal as Judy Garland in "Judy."

Brad Pitt won for Best Supporting Actor for his role in "Once Upon in Hollywood." 

Pitt gave a shoutout to the stunt coordinators and crews in his speech.

Laura Dern won for Best Supporting Actress for "Marriage Story."

Taika Waititi won the Academy Award for Adapted Screenplay for "Jojo Rabbit." Meanwhile "Little Women" won for Achievement in Costume Design. 

One of the more surprising moments was when Eminem jumped on stage to sing "Mom's Spaghetti," much to the surprise and amazement of the audience members. Another funny moment was when James Corden and Rebel Wilson showed up as "Cats" on stage for Achievement in Visual Effects - which went to "1917."

Our reporter Margaret Carrero was on the scene at the Dolby Theatre Sunday for the carpet arrival of the movie stars and all the winners.

Moreover there are some road closures to keep in mind for Sunday through Monday:
