It's time to end award season with a fabulous bang.
The 2023 Oscars are finally here and the biggest actors and actresses in Hollywood were more than ready to celebrate the best in film from the past year inside the Dolby Theatre.
All eyes were on the Best Picture category as movie fans waited to see if Everything Everywhere All at Once would take home the biggest trophy of the night on March 12. Spoiler alert: They totally did and you can see a full list of winners here.
But there was also the suspense to find out if Austin Butler would beat out Brendan Fraser in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role category. Not to be outdone, Michelle Yeoh, Cate Blanchett and Michelle Williams were also in attendance to see who would walk away with the Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role.
While movies took center stage at this live award show, there were also performances worth paying attention to. Pregnant Rihanna performed "Lift Me Up" from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack during the show while Lenny Kravitz delivered the "In Memoriam" performance.
"We have strict policies in place," he said in his monologue. "If anyone in this theatre commits an act of violence at any point during the show, you will be awarded the Oscar for Best Actor and permitted to give a 19-minute long speech."
Before the show began, however, there was a red—or shall we say champagne—carpet where attendees showcased must-see fashion looks. Keep reading to get a look at all the outfits and star sightings from the 2023 Oscars.
