But in all seriousness, while the star of The Revenant is no doubt top of mind for everybody at the Dolby Theatre this evening, he's not the only thing going on. After all, this is Hollywood's biggest event and it drew Hollywood's biggest stars. Matt Damonis here. Cate Blanchettis here. Jacob Tremblay's hot dad is here! It's legendary.
