The David Ayer-directed film took home the Oscar for Best Makeup and Hair Design, marking the first Academy Award for the DC Extended Universe. Neither 2013’s Man of Steel nor 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were nominated for Oscars.
Suicide Squad beat out Star Trek Beyond and Swedish drama A Man Called Ove. Accepting the award were first-time winners Alessandro Bertolazzi, Giorgio Gregorini, and Christopher Nelson.
IGN’s Brian Altano summed up the audience reaction to the win pretty succinctly:
