Jennifer Lawrence


The actress was everyone's dream date at the 90th Academy Awards on Sunday when she was spotted unabashedly hitching up her Dior dress to climb over rows of chairs to get to her seat, wine glass in hand. Lawrence's vino of choice was Francis Ford Coppola Winery’s Director’s Cut Oscars 90th Edition 2016 Chardonnay—over 14,000 glasses of the famed filmed director's wine were served that night!

In the middle of the show, Kimmel enlisted a slew of A-listers armed with snacks to surprise a group of people watching an early viewing of A Wrinkle in Time at the TCL Chinese Theatre across the street.

During a commercial break, the celebrities were given baskets of candy, trays of sandwiches and — most impressively — hot dog-shaped hot dog cannons, which Armie Hammer gleefully shot into the crowd.

The comedian would never let an awards show crowd go hungry, so he provided his audience at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles with lunch boxes full of potato chips, gummy bears, Listerine strips and KIND granola bars. Each of the boxes included a donation to the L.A. Food Bank.
