One lucky film just dethroned Black Panther for a highly coveted award.

Tonight, the 92nd annual Academy Awards took place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. During the ceremony, Little Women won the Oscar for Best Costume Design.

The movie was up against The Irishman, Jojo Rabbit, Joker and Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. Talk about a stacked category.

The Academy Award for Best Costume Design has been around since the 21st annual ceremony, though it was originally separated into two awards for color and black-and-white films. The statuette is given to the costume designer who conceived the original ideas.

Previous winners include Black Panther, Phantom Thread, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Great Gatsby, Anna Karenina, The Artist, Alice in Wonderland, The Young Victoria, The Duchess, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Marie Antoinette, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Aviator, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Chicago, Moulin Rouge! and Gladiator.

Edith Head (The Facts of Life, All About Eve) currently holds the record for the most wins in this category, with a total of eight. She’s been nominated an additional 27 times—just let that sink in.

Bravo to Little Women and all the deserving nominees.
