The Oscars made history Sunday night, and not just for the Best Picture award blunder.
Amazon Studios won three Oscars at the 89th Academy Awards for Manchester by the Sea and The Salesman--a first win for any streaming studio. It was also nominated for the prestigious Hollywood prize.
Host Jimmy Kimmel did not ignore that milestone and included a quip about Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos in his opening monologue:
Manchester by the Sea, which was nominated for six Oscars, won for Best Original Screenplay and Best Actor. Casey Affleck, who played a damaged man caring for his nephew, won despite backlash over allegations of sexual harassment.
Amazon, which relies on paying subscribers to watch its content on Prime, showed the film in a wide theatrical release. The film grossed over $46 million domestically, according to Box Office Mojo.
The Salesman, an Iranian drama about a young couple, won Best Foreign Language Film. However, director Asghar Farhadi did not attend the ceremony in an act of protest against President Donald Trump's executive order banning people from seven majority-Muslim countries.
Amazon wasn't the only historic winner: Viola Davis became the first African American to win an Oscar, Emmy, and Tony. And Mahershala Ali became the first Muslim actor to win an Oscar.
