Tom Hanks turned heads when he dropped down and began doing pushups alongside a U.S. Army Sergeant
That’s all folks!
A little rain in Los Angeles didn’t stop the 92nd Annual Academy Awards from being an unforgettable night! From Billy Porter‘s hilarious yet relatable blanket moment to Taika Waititi‘s many red carpet poses, we’ve gathered a ton of memorable moments that weren’t shown on TV.
Here are some of the best behind-the-scenes Oscars moments.
On the Red Carpet
The star, 35, also posed with her How to Train Your Dragon family as Piers Williams, 38, took the sweet shot.
“Did you get a good one, babe?” Ferrera was heard asking Piers Williams.
“Billy Porter, look at Billy Porter!” Metz, 39, said to a friend.
Later on, during a commercial break, Porter, 50, was spotted cozying up with a blanket in a shaded area as the rain in Los Angeles continued to pour down.
Porter later responded to his relatable accessory, hilariously writing on Twitter, “It’s raining in LA and it’s cold Betches!!!”
Back on the carpet, Waititi, 44, showed off an array of poses, one of which included a shot of him covering his face with his hands.
Also on the carpet was Brad Pitt, who happily shouted “Hi guys!” to screaming fans as he made his way inside.
Pitt’s good friend Leonardo DiCaprio sweetly walked the carpet with his mother Irmelin Indenbirken.
Inside the Show
Once inside the Dolby Theatre, Ferrera was seen snacking on popcorn and chips during a commercial break.
Timothée Chalamet was among the stars mind-blown by the rapper’s surprise performance. The actor, 24, was seen watching the set backstage on a monitor.
“Standing ovation @Eminem,” Ricky Martin tweeted, adding several hand clapping emojis.
Adam Driver, his wife Joanne Tucker, Greta Gerwig and Florence Pugh all chatted together in the lobby. The group was later joined by Rian Johnson, who sipped on a cocktail alongside his wife Karina Longworth.
After her win, Dern, 53, who was holding on tightly to her Oscar and her winning envelope, was congratulated by Mahershala Ali as she walked off stage. Dern later teared up when she hugged her long-time publicist.
During commercial break, Margot Robbie, who played Sharon Tate in Tarantino’s film, went over to Pitt’s seat to give him a hug. Dern also congratulated him.
Hanks made some last-minute adjustments to his speech just before heading onstage. The star decided to switch out a reference to Helen Mirren for a joke about SNL‘s Colin Jost outshining a shirtless Pitt.
Waititi also took home an award and quickly went viral — but not for his Best Adapted Screenplay win for Jojo Rabbit.
While in his seat, Waititi was hilariously caught putting his statuette underneath the seat in front of him. The moment was captured by Brie Larson, who shared it to her Instagram Story.
After the skit, Wilson was heard telling Corden, “Now I’ve got to get back in regular makeup!”
Rita also snapped a shot of Hanks with the directors and producers of Toy Story 4: Jonas Rivera, Josh Cooley and Mark Nielsen after their win.
“Bravo to you! Girl, what a performance!” said Fonda, to which Zellweger thanked her and exclaimed, “You’re a knock-out!”
Still in shock from her second Oscar win, Zellweger announced: ”If only I could stand up straight; I’m shaking so much!”
At the Governors Ball, Julia Butters, who revealed she was carrying a turkey sandwich in her pink clutch on the red carpet, joined DiCaprio’s table with her mom. DiCaprio, 45, was seated with his dad.
DiCaprio was heard telling his parents, “By the way, how great was Joaquin [Phoenix]’s speech?”
While accepting his award for Best Actor for The Joker, Phoenix, 45, touched on the “distressing issues” that the world is facing, but said that he sees them as more of a unifying factor than a dividing one, and urged everyone to live with love and compassion.
Also at the Governors Ball, Shia LaBeouf was seen chasing down waiters for mac and cheese as well as chicken pot pie.
Pitt also made an appearance at the Ball. The star sat in a roped off section of the party after getting his statuette engraved.
Still reveling in her win for her role in Judy, Zellweger was seen at the Governors Ball talking on the phone with her mother, telling her she loves her and is so thankful.
Maya Rudolph overheard the sweet conversation and said: “Oh my God, is that your mama? Aww.” Zellweger then put down the phone and told Rudolph, “I’m so proud of you.”
The 92nd Annual Academy Awards aired live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Feb. 9 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
