And, just like that, the Oscars is over. But don’t worry – we’re not about to put (yet another) recap of winners on your radar. Instead of telling you what you already know, we’re going to show you what you probably haven’t seen yet: our favourite 6 backstage photos.
From Brad Pitt about to walk on stage to collect his first-ever acting Oscar to Timothée Chalamet and Taika Waititi hugging in Natalie Portman’s presence, these are our favourite backstage shots from the 92nd Academy Awards.
Winning his first-ever acting Oscar for the Best Supporting Actor in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, it’s no surprise that Pitt looks a little nervous as he’s directed onto the stage. Either way, we’re all here for the velvet blazer and bow tie duo.
As the first indigenous New Zealander to win an Oscar, Taika Waititi looks beyond himself with excitement as he walks backstage after winning Best Adapted Screenplay for Jojo Rabbit. What a feeling that must be. Oh, and we’re big fans of the broach on this suit.
This shot was taken just before Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus went on stage to present the Best Cinematography Oscar. Trust Ferrell to be this animated and energetic (and perhaps a little anxious of how his mocking speech about what a cinematographer actually does will be received).
After Timothée Chalamet and Natalie Portman come off the stage from presenting Best Adapted Screenplay, Taika Waititi and Timothée Chalemet hug it out. And hey, take a look at all of those Oscar status lined up. We wouldn’t mind getting our hands on one of those…
Boog Joon-Ho won not one, not two but three Oscars! His film Parasite won him Best Picture, Best Directing and Best Screenplay. It’s the first non-English-speaking film ever to do so (and his first Oscars, too!). Look at that face – we imagine no feeling can compare.
Giving Cats the recognition they thought it deserved, James Corden and Rebel Wilson went full-costume to present the Best Visual Effects award. Here they are, posing in front of the line-up of status, before they head on stage.
