Watch: Welcome to the FIRST EVER Laverne Cox Awards

No award show is complete without Laverne Cox.

The actress has become a red carpet staple as the host of E! News' Live From E! specials, interviewing Hollywood's biggest names at the OscarsGrammys, SAG Awards and more. And she's continuing her celebrity conversations in new episodes of her E! series If We're Being Honest, which returns Nov. 9.

But before the Inventing Anna star sits down to chat with celebs like Garcelle BeauvaisLeslie Jones and Jameela Jamil, we're taking a look back at her most memorable (and hilarious) red carpet moments over the years.

Laverne may be a celebrity, but she still loses her cool around her favorite stars like the rest of us. For example, she freaked out over chatting with Kevin Costner at the 2022 SAG Awards.

"Oh my goodness. I'm gagging," Laverne joked. "This is one of those moments where I'm just like, 'Oh my god, Kevin Costner's here.'"

Laverne also couldn't "contain myself" upon meeting BTS at the 2022 Grammys, or as she was "eagerly awaiting" to see Lady Gaga hit the SAG Awards carpet.

Laverne Cox's Best Looks Through the Years

As an award-winning actress, Laverne can often relate to her nominated interviewees. But there are some people, like Rami Malek, that she can relate to more than others.

"We're both twins," she said at the 2022 Oscars. "Do people know this, that Rami and I are both twins? This is like a little trivia for the kids."

Always uplifting people on the carpet, sometimes stars return the favor to Laverne. "Jamie [Lee Curtis] was just telling me to breathe while we were doing this," she told the Halloween Ends star at the Oscars, "and I appreciate that."

From praising Billy Porter to comforting a tearful Ariana DeBose, see more of Laverne's best celebrity interview moments in the full video above.
