Clint Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby beat Martin Scorsese's The Aviator to the top awards at the Oscars on Sunday.

The boxing drama was named best picture and Eastwood pipped Scorsese to best director, while its stars Hilary Swank and Morgan Freeman won acting awards.

The Aviator took five prizes including best supporting actress for Cate Blanchett. The biopic of Howard Hughes led the nominations with 11.

Upsetting the 'Baby' balance, Jamie Foxx picked up best actor for playing soul star Ray Charles in Ray.

Many expected this to be Scorsese's year - but he was unsuccessful in the best director category for the fifth time in his career.

Five years after exploding onto the scene with her raw performance in 'Boys Don't Cry,' Hilary Swank picked up her second best actress Oscar for playing a female boxer in Million Dollar Baby, beating stars including Annette Bening, Kate Winslet and Imelda Staunton.

Million Dollar Baby's success was the night's biggest surprise after The Aviator seemed to have the advantage until the end of the ceremony.

Winners in other key categories of the night were pretty evenly distributed to 'Sideways' (Best Adapted Screenplay), 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' (Best Original Screenplay), 'The Sea Inside' (Best Foreign-Language Film), 'Finding Neverland' (Best Original Score), 'Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events' (Best Makeup), 'Spider-Man 2' (Best Visual Effects), 'Ray' (Best Sound Mixing) and 'The Incredibles,' which swooped off with awards for Best Sound Editing and Best Animated Feature Film.

Host CHRIS ROCK did the Oscars proud as he brought a welcome breath of fresh air to the show, keeping the audience in stitches and delivering an opening monologue with riffs on everything from politics and PRESIDENT BUSH to who is a true star ("If you can't get a star, wait. If you can't get DENZEL and all you can get is me -- wait. He would never make 'Pootie Tang.'"). Here are some quote-worthy comments:

Musical highlights of the evening included the ever-present BEYONCE singing an unprecedented three of the evening's nominated songs, and my favorite highlight of the night...Pierce Brosnan presenting with the animated character Edna Mode from 'The Incredibles'.
