Here’s all the best moments from the 2018 Oscars
The 90th Academy Awards ceremony was held on March 4, 2018. AMPAS presented Academy Awards in 24 categories and the ceremony was hosted for the second consecutive year by comedian Jimmy Kimmel.
It’s been a complicated year for Hollywood in 2018 but following Kimmel’s encouraging and tastefully funny opening monologue, the show was filled with powerful performances, historic wins, and inspiring messages sent from women and men alike.
One of the best moments of the night was Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s Google Commercial: the famous couple seemingly weren’t in attendance at this year’s show, but they still managed to make a hilarious cameo.
In one of the final commercial breaks of the broadcast, Teigen and Legend popped up on an add for Google Assistant, in which Teigen is attempting to search for a show as Legend sing-thinks his frustration. The result? A very funny moment.
And what about Jimmy Kimmel that enlisted a slew of actors including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Margot Robbie and Gal Gadot to parade over to an advance screening of A Wrinkle in Time that was happening down the street from the Oscars?
Most of the celebrities walked in bearing theater snacks to hand out to those in the theater as a way to say thank you to moviegoers for seeing movies, which likely made everyone watching at home completely jealous.
Also Frances McDormand’s acceptance speech will be remembered. Shortly after thanking her family for their support while she filmed “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” the Best Actress winner asked all the female nominees to stand up.
McDormand called the attention of the men in the room to the standing women and encouraged them to listen to the women’s stories for their next movies.
