It's the most talked about night in show business!

All eyes were on the 2020 Oscars, which means we noticed every reaction face, red carpet showstopper or behind-the-scenes moment that immediately became a part of Internet history.

There was the hilarious pre-show coverage moment when we saw a gigantic Oscars statue get quickly carried out of the rain, inspiring plenty of hilarious tweets about which stars they think should run off with a trophy if they don't win one.

We also saw on the E! red carpet cute celebrity interactions, like Timothée Chalamet photo-bombing Margot Robbie in front of the step-and-repeat.

Plus, there were plenty of fashion moments that trended on social for reasons beyond just being a stunning outfit. 

Natalie Portman's cape was all the buzz when she showed off all the snubbed female director's names embroidered into her cape. We also saw America Ferrera in a stunning gown and headband that paid homage to her Lenca ancestors.

2020 Oscars Winners: The Complete List


It's going to be a huge night of unforgettable moments, so be sure to tune in if you aren't already.

Check out what viral moments have already happened below!

Mic Check

When Parasite won Best Picture, marking a historic win as the first film in a non-English language to do so, everyone at home and in the audience was excited to hear the producer's speeches.

However, when the lights cut out early on Miky Lee's speech though, the starpower of the front row including Tom Hanks and Charlize Theron brought the lights back on as they motioned to let the creators keep talking.

It was clear that Parasite's well-deserved win was the perfect way to cap off the night.

Two-Day Delivery

Surprised to see Jeff Bezos' face in the audience at the 2020 Oscars? So were we, but thank goodness he was there because his presence resulted in plenty of jokes from monologue openers Chris Rock and Steve Martin.

The duo joked that the Amazon CEO likely thought Marriage Story was a comedy and ribbed that, even post-divorce, Bezos is the richest man in the room.

Bezos seemed to take it in stride, but we'll only know if he's pissed or not based on if Rock and Martin's delivery packages suddenly go missing. 

Bong Hive Comes Alive

The Bong hive rose up when Bong Joon-ho took home an early Oscars award. 

We were smiling almost as hard as the director was when he was beaming at his award with his back turned to the audience, seemingly in disbelief that the historic win took place.

Runaway Statue

The meme of the night came before the show even started when a Twitter user uploaded a video of a giant Oscars statue being carried off to another location.

Immediately, people online started to joke how they too will be stealing an Academy Award should their faves not win the night, with one user joking that someone ought to be nabbing one of these to take to Jennifer Lopez, who many feel was snubbed for her role in Hustlers.

Funny Ladies

Listen, we get that the Oscars haven't had hosts in a minute, but can we please motion to make Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudloph the hosts next year? After their hilarious presentation, we just wanted them back on our stage.

Long Live 2002

We were all shocked when Eminem popped up at the Oscars to perform "Lose Yourself" from 8 Mile, and while we were bopping to the beat, it seemed like quite a few people in the audience were VERY confused.

Quick Nap

Speaking of Eminem's performance, while plenty of the stars either were rocking out to the performance (or just baffled by it), one of our favorite reaction shots was seeing Martin Scorsese seemingly waking from a quick nap as the rapper rocked on.

We Can't Believe What's Happening Right Meow

We couldn't stop laughing when Cats performers James Corden and Rebel Wilson came out as their furry characters to present an Oscar award.

"As cast members of the motion picture Cats, nobody more than us understands the importance of good visual effects," Corden joked, in reference to the film's widely panned visuals. 

Just Gonna Leave That Here

Some of the best moments weren't even happening on the Oscars telecast but were on the star's social media, such as this hilarious moment when Brie Larson caught Taika Waititi hiding his Oscar statue under the seat in front of him.

Photobomb Cuties

In an adorable moment on the red carpet, Timothée Chalamet snuck up on Margot Robbie for a photobomb moment.

The Once Upon a Hollywood star took it in stride though, turning around and joyfully giving the Little Women actor a pinch on the cheek.

Justice for Greta Gerwig! (And More)

Natalie Portman turned heads on the red carpet for her stunning outfit, but it turned out that there was an even more amazing reason to love her outfit.

On the red carpet, she revealed that she had embroidered each of the snubbed female director's into her cape. With directors like Greta Gerwig, Lulu Wang, Alma Har'el and more entirely ignored by the Academy this year, we were glad to see Portman take a stand.

Total Fangirl Moment

Everybody loves The Office, including Grammy-award winning artist Billie Eilish who totally freaked out when she briefly got to meet Mindy Kaling on the red carpet!

Black Widow Reunion

We couldn't get enough of Florence Pugh and Scarlett Johansson totally geeking out on seeing one another on the red carpet. 

The two star in the upcoming Black Widow film and we can't wait to see their on-screen friendship, too.
