Alicia Vikander took home her first ever Oscar on Sunday night as she was crowned the Best Supporting Actress. The 27-year-old beat favourite Kate Winslet, as well as fellow nominees Rooney Mara, Rachel McAdams and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
As soon as her name was announced, a shocked Alicia turned to her boyfriend Michael Fassbender who was seated next to her and gave him a discreet kiss. The Swedish beauty then hugged her mum before taking to the stage.
Alicia, who was being recognised for her role in The Danish Girl, looked visibly moved as she accepted her accolade.

The actress thanked her parents, saying she "wouldn't have believed them" if they had told her she would win. "To my mum and dad, thank you for giving me the belief anything can happen," she said.
Alicia also paid a special mention to her co-star Eddie Redmayne, as well as the film's director Tom Hooper.

Wearing a daring yellow gown with her hair swept back into a half bun, Alicia looked Oscar worthy in her show-stopping outfit.
Fans were quick to comment on social media that the brunette star bore a striking resemblance to sweet Belle from Disney's Beauty and the Beast.

Speaking to E! presenter Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet, Alicia admitted it was "extraordinary" to be at the awards.
"I'm at the Oscars, it's crazy," she said. "Being here is so surreal, I have butterflies in my tummy! Being here is extraordinary."

Of her Louis Vuitton gown, she added: "I love the colour. It spices it up a bit."
Alicia's win may have come as a welcome surprise to her fans. In the Golden Globes and BAFTA awards earlier this year, her fellow nominee Kate Winslet had scooped the gong for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Steve Jobs.
