An all-European foursome takes home acting honors at Sunday’s Oscars — France’s Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose), England’s Daniel Day-Lewis (There Will Be Blood), England’s Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton), and Spain’s Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men). Backstage, they pose for a collective moment of celebration.

Long-suffering Oscar bridesmaid and 2007 Oscar-winner Martin Scorsese presents the Best Director prize to Ethan and Joel Coen for their multiple Oscar-winning No Country For Old Men.

Best Actress Marion Cotillard, whose role as Edith Piaf transformed her into a dowdy street hustler to beloved songbird to frail invalid, delivers one of the night’s most genuine speeches.

Marion Cotillard accepts her Oscar…

…and gets a hug in the wings from presenter Forest Whitaker.

Kristin Chenoweth displays her Broadway lungs performing Best Song nominee “That’s How You Know” from Enchanted.

Tilda Swinton rises in surprise when she’s named Best Supporting Actress for her role in Michael Clayton, arguably the night’s biggest upset. Swinton beat out favorites Cate Blanchett (I’m Not There) and Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone) to take home her first Oscar.

Daniel Day-Lewis kneels to The Queen (Helen Mirren) to accept the Oscar for Best Actor.

Musicians Marketa Irglova and Glen Hansard sing their song, “Falling Slowly,” from the micro-budgeted musical Once.

Marketa Irglova and Glen Hansard win the Oscar for Best Song, but Irglova’s speech is cut off. Host Jon Stewart breaks precedence by bringing Irglova back onstage, where she delivers another of the night’s more plaintive, heartfelt thank yous.

Josh Brolin and Tommy Lee Jones embrace; and Javier Bardem raises a fist in triumph when their film, No Country For Old Men, wins the night’s most coveted prize: the Oscar for Best Picture.

Of course, there was more glitz and glamour on the red carpet…click images below for stars like Cate Blanchett, Renee Zellweger, Jennifer Garner, and more!
