Reba McEntire returned for the 15th time to host the show, the first major gathering of country stars in Las Vegas since the deadly mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest festival last October.

“I guess they finally figured out that it only takes one woman to do the job of two men,” McEntire said in her opener, acknowledging her return as solo host after Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley shared the duties last year.

She also made a nod to the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp, noting the dearth of women nominated in major categories. “Have you seen the Entertainer of the Year category? Five men, no women,” she said.

Here’s the complete list of winners.

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Hanks Excellent as Crusoe-ish Hero in Pop-Existential Drama

'Cast Away' Movie with Tom Hanks stranded on a deserted island 'Cast Away' Movie review: Tom Hanks excellent in high-concept Hollywood flick disguised as existential adventure drama Most people will see Robert Zemeckis' Cast Away as a celebration of the Triumph of the Human Spirit. A minority, myself included, will prefer the more mundane explanation that the film merely depicts a man following his survival instincts, which propel him – like any other animal, from cockroaches to crocodiles – to fight to remain alive almost against his will.
