At last night’s Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, Elton John took home the Oscar for Best Original Song for the second time in his career.

“Wow, this doesn’t suck,” said Bernie Taupin, when collecting the award alongside his songwriting partner. “Being here with this guy, I don’t have words for it, this is justification for 53 years of just hammering it out and doing what we do.”

Other performers at the Oscars included Randy Newman playing his nominated song “I Can’t Let You Throw Yourself Away”, from Toy Story 4; and Billie Eilish covering The Beatles’ “Yesterday” for the in memoriam section. Watch footage below:
