Spotlight won Best Picture at the Academy Awards on Sunday night, upsetting the heavily favored The Revenant.

The ensemble drama about The Boston Globe‘s 2002 reporting of the Catholic Church child sex abuse scandal had only one other win on the night, for Best Original Screenplay. The cast basked in their victory after picking up their golden statuettes.

Members of the real-life Spotlight team and The Boston Globe celebrated, too.

Hollywood types and other journalists also paid their respects to writer-director Tom McCarthy’s feature.
