The Oscars 2018 saw various celebrities bringing their A-game into the event. Many of them graced the red carpet in spectacular clothes while there were some who might have tried a little bit more than we had expected them to. But then again, if there are some best moments, there are bound to be few awkward moments.
The Oscars being held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood is being hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Many celebrities like Jane Fonda, Allison Janney, Reese Witherspoon, and others stole the thunder with their flawless attire while Rita Moreno decided to bring back the 90s on the carpet. Here's a look at some of the best and some awkward moments from the event.
# Ryan Seacrest
Ever since the sexual assault allegations against Ryan came to light, the big question that had been on everyone's mind was who would be the celebrities who would be willing to go forward and be interviewed by him. Unlike previous years, Ryan was unable to attract many celebrities and one can say that these allegations might have something to do with this. Only 19 people stopped to talk to the host. These included Diane Warren, Miguel
Gael García Bernal, Kelly Ripa, Allison Janney, Christopher Plummer, Andy Serkis, Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Lil Rel Howery, Betty Gabriel, Bradley Whitford, Lil Rel Howery, Betty Gabriel, Rita Moreno, Eiza Gonzalez, Mary J. Blige, Andra Day, Taraji P. Henson, Whoopi Goldberg and Tiffany Haddish.
# Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino arrive together
Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino stood united at the Oscars in support of the MeToo movement. The two were very vocal about how they were determined on making the moment last.
“I want people to know that this movement isn’t stopping,” Mira said on the red carpet. “We want to take our activism and our power into action." Meanwhile, Ashley added that she knew she had made the right choice by having Mira as her date to the event because the two had a lot more in common than anyone could have imagined.
# Rita Moreno
Rita Moreno, who is also one of the presenters for the award show, made everyone stop and stare at what she decided to wear at the event. The actress graced the red carpet by wearing the same gown that she wore on the night that she won an Oscar for West Side Story back in 1962. She had teased about it in one of her tweets where she wrote, "Wait till you see what I'm wearing!!!" Now we know what the hype was all about!
# Taraji P Henson calling ou Ryan Seacrest
Among the few that Ryan Seacrest was able to get an interview with, Taraji happened to take that moment to put forward her thought about what she really thinks about the sexual assault allegations against Ryan, but in a subtle manner. While being asked about the Oscars, Taraji told Ryan, “You know, the universe has a way of taking care of the good people." At this point, Ryan was left speechless. But Taraji knew just what to do. While giving him a little friendly nudge under the chin she can be seen saying, "You know what I mean?"
We all definitely knew what she meant.
# Tiffany Haddish
Tiffany dazzled the red carpet with a dress that not only happened to be beautiful but also meaningful. Tiffany wore a cream gown with a fitted bodice and full skirt, along with a black cape with black-and-gold embroidery. The dress had a very touching story and she stopped on the carpet and told ABC about it. In the interview, Tiffany said that the dress was a tribute to her father, who was from the northeast African country, Eritrea who had passed away last year. “He said one day I would end up here and if I ever ended up at the Oscars to honor my people so I’m honoring my fellow Eritreans,” she said.
