Hollywood’s big night was filled with plenty of memorable moments.

THE BRONX - The 86th Annual Academy Awards are a wrap, but the borough is still buzzing about Hollywood's big night. 

"12 Years a Slave" nabbed the Oscar for best picture, making history as Steve McQueen became the first black director to receive the honor. 

Other big moments of the night included Jennifer Lawrence taking a spill on the red carpet and a star-studded “selfie” that crashed Twitter with a record number of re-tweets. 

Bronx viewers say that other favorite parts about the night include performances from Pink and Bette Midler, and Alfonso Cuaron becoming the first Latino to win best director for his film "Gravity."
