Getting the party started
Who needed a host when you had Janelle Monae and Billy Porter bringing some serious moves and vocals to the Oscar stage to open the show?
Brad Pitt showed some smooth moves as he won his first acting Oscar for his role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood! nAnd, as we’ve come to expect from his previous acceptance speeches, his thank you speech was not short of jokes and political jabs. "They told me I have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week," Pitt said.
That’s a lot of Elsas!
The angelic moment when Idina Menzel sang Into the Unknown with nine other Elsas from around the world.
Maya and Kristen for Oscars 2021
Bridesmaids co-stars Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig were HILARIOUS as they presented the best production design and best costume design awards, further proving they should have been the hosts of the Academy Awards this year. Kristen’s fashion choice also went viral after some compared her look to... lasagna.

And now for a brief paws...
Ok we admit it – when Rebel Wilson and James Corden kind of left us scratching our heads when they presented the award for visual effects while dressed in Cats costumes. Still, it helped us bring out our inner Cat Lady.
Joaquin Phoenix acceptance speech for Best Actor had us all in tears. The Joker star remembered his late brother River Phoenix: "When he was 17, my brother wrote this lyric. He said, 'Run to the rescue with love—and peace will follow.'"
