While accepting his Oscar for Best Supporting Actor at the 92nd Academy Awards on Sunday, Brad Pitt called out the United States Senate for its decision to allow a no-witness impeachment trial for President Donald Trump.“Wow. Thank you, this is incredible, really incredible. Thank you to the Academy for this honor of honors. They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,” Pitt said, after receiving his statuette for his performance as Cliff Booth in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood.” “I’m thinking maybe Quentin [Tarantino] does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing.”Last month, the Senate decided in a 51-49 vote not to call witnesses — including former national security adviser John Bolton, among others — for Trump’s impeachment trial. Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah and Susan Collins of Maine were the only two Republican senators who voted with the Democrats to allow witnesses.Also Read: Oscars 2020: Steve Martin and Chris Rock's Best Jokes From the Show OpenPitt soon steered his speech back to the personal side, giving a shoutout to his director, Tarantino, who he called an “original” and “one of a kind.”“The film industry would be a much drier place without you and I love the ethos you gave Cliff Booth,” he continued. “Look for the best in people, expect the worst but look for the best.”He then turned his speech into a tribute to his co-star Leonardo DiCaprio, who is nominated for Best Actor at this year’s Oscars, saying “I’ll ride on your coattails any day, man.

We don’t know if it was the frothy, pink tulle Molly Goddard dress Villanelle wore in ‘Killing Eve‘ that inspired it, but pink was certainly the colour du jour at the Oscars 2019.Linda Cardellini, star of ‘Green Book’ went all in and rocked up on the red carpet wearing one of the frothiest gowns we’ve ever clapped eyes on. While some applauded the look, others likened the former ‘Scooby Doo’ star to a Muppet. Fashion-forward Brit Gemma Chan opted for a look just as extravagant: a tiered, voluminous dress by Valentino. The very same look that caused Celine Dion to shed a tear of joy during Haute Couture Fashion Week.Angela Bassett put her own spin on the micro trend, wearing a dramatic, sweeping look in the fuchsia hue.But it was Julia Roberts, pretty in pink, who left fans giddy. Popping up at the prestigious awards at the last minute to present the Best Picture accolade, the Oscar-winner ensured she was on trend in a a one-shoulder, ruffled affair.
The Oscars 2019 was just as star-studded as expected. Celebrities including ‘The Favourite’ lead Olivia Colman, ‘Game of Thrones’ actress Emilia Clarke and even tennis superstar Serena Williams took to the red carpet, wearing an array of wow-factor ensembles.For the most part, the A-list pack stuck to simple cuts and block colours – barely a print was seen at the awards.Even ‘A Star Is Born’ star Lady Gaga toned down her look and arrived wearing a black strapless, drop-waist McQueen number paired with her leather gloves. A 128-carat necklace (last worn by Audrey Hepburn) from Tiffany & Co completed the outfit.Helen Mirren, 73, was one of the best dressed at the Oscars 2019 in a coral Schiaparelli number. Jennifer Lopez, meanwhile, brought the glamour in a metallic, form-fitting Tom Ford look. Charlize Theron rocked custom Dior – and a new brunette hairdo that left her almost unrecognisable.The men were equally fashion-forward. Bradley Cooper and Rami Malek suited up in tuxedos while ‘Captain America’ star Chris Evans wore a velvet, blue suit jacket.Reporting by Elizabeth Di Filippo and Alison Coldridge.
The Oscars might be designed to celebrate the trailblazers in the film industry, but it’s also an opportunity for the world’s most famous screen stars to showcase their sartorial prowess.Each years, the Oscars red carpet is fit to burst with A-listers dressed to impress. Celebrities, and their stylists, spend months planning their outfits, knowing that people worldwide will be waiting to see ‘who’ they wear.While it’s difficult to nail down the most iconic Oscars dress of all time (we are on to the 91st edition of the awards this year, after all) many will forever remain etched in our minds.Angelina Jolie‘s Atelier Versace, is one obvious example. The actress hit headlines globally with her ‘leg-thrusting’ pose in her thigh-high split gown at the 2012 awards.Hilary Swank’s blue, backless Guy Laroche dress worn to the 77th Academy Awards is another Oscars outfit that will go down in history. Cut to the base of the American star’s spine, the dress certainly packed a punch.Jennifer Lawrence has taken to the Academy Awards red carpet in a number of award-winning gowns over the years, but we picked out a Calvin Klein number for this round-up. With its streamlined cut and fuss-free style, it proved that often less really is more.And how could we forget the baby pink prom-esque Valentino dress Gwyneth Paltrow wore in 1999? It’s almost as infamous as the actress’ somewhat emotional acceptance speech, the same year, for her best actress accolade.Other memorable dresses include Nicole Kidman’s 1997 Galliano for Dior gown and the semi-sheer number Halle Berry wore in 2002. Madonna’s $20 million, diamond-encrusted Bob Mackie gown is another dress that’s stood the test of time.From long-reigning classics to more modern looks, we chart the best Oscars dresses of all time.
