Oscar winners Daniel Kaluuya and Youn Yuh-Jung hugging backstage after winning their Academy Awards was a very special moment that fans were loving this morning.

Youn Yuh-Jung made history by becoming the first South-Korean actor to win an Oscar in the academy's 93-year history after she accepted Best Supporting Actress for her role in Minari.

British star Daniel Kaluuya, who was previously Oscar-nominated for his role in 2017's Get Out, won Best Supporting Actor for his role as Black Panther chair Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah.
