The Oscars winners linked up with their people and got the party started to celebrate their epic wins! Go inside to see party flicks of Spike Lee, Regina King, Mahershala Ali, Kelly Rowland, Serena Williams and tons more inside...

Who would have thought the Oscars would save Black History Month. February 2019 has been a bumpy ride, but the all the YBF wins at this year's Academy Awards def helped.

Famed director Spike Lee finally won his first Oscar! It was a long time coming, but he received the recognition he so deserved. The director and the BlackkKlansman crew won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay and the Brooklyn bred director celebrated with his wife Tonya Lewis Lee, and his kids - Jackson Lee and Satchel Lee (not pictured) at the 91st Annual Academy Awards Governors Ball held at Hollywood and Highland.

The director also celebrated his win with fellow Oscar winner Barbra Streisand.


Spike Lee is already "on to the next." After the party, he made his way to LAX on his way to Thailand to shoot his new film titled, "Da 5 Bloods," featuring Chadwick Boseman. He'll be gone for two months.

First time Oscar winner Regina King and two-time Oscar winner Mahershala Ali (above with his wife Amatus Sami-Karim) toted their trophies around during the festivities.

Courtney B. Vance and his wife Angela Bassett congratulated Mahershala over his epic win.

Three the hard way! Black Panther beauties Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong'o and Letitia Wright linked up for a photo-op. 

Black Panther hottie Michael B. Jordan was all smiles as he made his way inside the party with his date: his mother Donna Jordan. 

Tennis star Serena Williams, married couple DeVon Franklin and Megan Good and POSE star Billy Porter were also in the mix.


At another party...

Folks thought ish would go left at the 27th annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party when former Supreme singers Diana Ross and Mary Wilson crossed paths. But, the ladies played nice. There's been bad blood between the two that goes back to when they were in the legendary singing group. Page Six reports:

Ross, with her son Evan, came over to say hello to Quincy Jones, seemingly without realizing that Wilson — who first wrote about their feud in “Dreamgirl: My Life as a Supreme” in 1986 — was sitting next to him.

Seeing Wilson, “Diana looked like a deer caught in the headlights,” said Mark Bego, Wilson’s ghostwriter, who was sitting at the same table with Lorna Luft. “Mary had a smile on her face.”

“Lorna said, ‘OK kids, get to the bunker. This is going to be explosive,’ ” Bego told me.

Wilson graciously said, “Hi, Diana,” hugged her nemesis, and the awkward confrontation was over.

Good for them.

Werk, Ms. Mary!

Ms. Ross is still a baddie! CNN's Don Lemon was all smiles sitting next to her to watch Black Excellence take over.

Oscar winner Barry Jenkins, actor Evan Ross and his wife Ashlee Simpson came out to watch the show together.
