The 91st Oscars took place and the ceremony was anything but ordinary. And of course, with so many A-list stars under one roof, we were definitely in for some amazing moments.
1. When Chris Evans had a Captain America moment in real life.
Regina King won the 'Best Supporting Actress' for If Beale Street Could Talk and while she was on her way to the stage to accept her Oscar, she tripped a little over her gown. Chris Evans didn't take a second to come to her rescue, offering her his arm and proving that he's everyone's favourite superhero.

Oh captain my captain ❤— Tety (@tetyfernands) February 25, 2019
2. When Spike Lee finally won an Oscar for the Best Adapted Screenplay for BlacKkKlansman after being nominated five times before this.
Spike Lee couldn't hold in his excitement and literally jumped into Samuel L. Jackson's arms when he reached the stage to accept his award. He also had the best speech of the night.
Amazing filmmaker well and long deserved!— Meggar Ueckes (@megganzo) February 25, 2019
3. When Hannah Beachler won the Best Production Design for Black Panther and couldn't hold back her emotions.
Hannah Beachler made history after winning the Best Production Design Oscar for Black Panther by being the first African-American woman to win this award. Her speech was so genuine and heartwarming that we could sense her happiness within ourselves.
just wanted to post my favorite #Oscar win of the night. Hannah Beachler is an inspiration & her speech was so inspiring. i hope this is the beginning of people of color working behind the screen getting the recognition they deserve. pic.twitter.com/cX8Q8WtUkm— nya thompson (@NyaThompson_) February 25, 2019
I’m about to cry with her. Wow.— Amaria Janelle (@TigerAJRay) February 25, 2019
This is too pure for my eyes— Oingo Boingo (@louditalians) February 25, 2019
4. When Lady GaGa took charge and fixed Rami Malek's tie. Clearly, a star helping out another star.
Lady GaGa made all of us go 'aww' after she spontaneously fixed our on-screen Freddie Mercury's tie. And then gave him a thumbs up and some words of encouragement, proving to us that she's as warm as her character in her latest film, A Star Is Born.
Now it feels like the #Oscars. @ladygaga has arrived and is graciously going down front row saying hi to nearly every single person starting with Rami Malek. Spike Lee comes over, almost trips, but recovers to hang with Rami for a minute. pic.twitter.com/xBH4e72ExC— Chris Gardner (@chrissgardner) February 25, 2019
I’ll say it again, she’s takes my breath away...— Jerry (@keystone9429) February 25, 2019
5. When Gemma Chan pulled out a pack of cookies from her gown pocket and suddenly became the coolest person at the ceremony.
Now that's something we can all relate to!
6. When Bradley Cooper and Lady GaGa's performance melted every single person in the audience as well as all of us watching it at home.
Shallow is THE love song right now and after these two legends performed it on stage, everyone had to hold their breath. Right from a standing ovation to the smile they share with each other at the end of their performance, everything was flawless.
Whoever directed that intro into and exit out of that song, should be nominated for an award - the 2019 show should be nominated! Simply amazing show! Kudos @TheAcademy!— J. D. (@ddaniels1906) February 25, 2019
The fact he could hold his own sitting across from lady gaga is beyond impressive— BradleyJTice (@bradleyjtice) February 25, 2019
7. When Awkwafina proved that she was the coolest attendee and there can be no other.
Asian rap star and Hollywood actor, Awkwafina chugged down a shot of tequila from her purse while giving her red carpet interview. Now that's what we call being LIT.
Akwafina is dope....— Jae hernandez (@Jaehernandez12) February 25, 2019
8. When Trevor Noah made a Black Panther reference and the audience cracked up.
As usual, Trevor Noah was his funny self and a pleasant face for the audience. He managed to make everyone laugh in the few minutes he was on stage. He took a dig at white people and said, "Growing up in Wakanda, I would see T'Challa flying over our village, and he would remind me of a great Xhosa phrase."
I really love @TrevorNoah. He just introduced the #Oscars Best Picture of The Year Nominee, @TheBlackPanther, in true #WakandaForever style - in Blackness, strength, laughter and in his native language, #Xhosa. #Africa #SouthAfrica #Diaspora #US pic.twitter.com/tOUvQaihIY— Semhar (@Semhar) February 25, 2019
😂😂😂 Trevor just lied to the whole world explaining that Xhosa phrase— MĂWÅWÄ (@sirluds) February 25, 2019
😂😂😂 this maan is lying...— Aviwe Mgijima (@AviweMgijima) February 25, 2019
9. When Billy Porter showed up in this tuxedo-dress and everyone's jaws just dropped.
If you need #FashionGoals, then Billy Porter is the latest hot thing you should be following! His tuxedo-dress at this year's Oscars was the buzz of the ceremony and honestly, made everyone else look underdressed.
10. When Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Maya Rudolph opened the night with what they do best -- make everyone laugh till their stomachs hurt.
These three comedy queens slayed it when they mocked the 'host-less' Oscars night. They also took a hilarious dig at the Fyre Festival by telling everyone to check under their seats for cheese sandwiches.
I got excited thinking they were hosting.— Ann Clark (@AnnClar48677948) February 25, 2019
Best non-hosts ever!— Barb. Lynn (@Babs4963) February 25, 2019
11. When Keegan Michael Key made his grand entrance by gracefully coming down from the ceiling.
Keegan Michael Key definitely knows how to grab everyone's attention by making an exceptional entrance. So, what did he do? He came down from the ceiling, holding an umbrella. This was done in reference to him welcome Bette Midler's performance of Best Original Song nominee, 'The Place Where Lost Things Go' from Mary Poppins Returns.
Keegan-Michael Key just descended from the sky as Mary Poppins to introduce Bette Midler singing at the #Oscars.— Chris Geidner (@chrisgeidner) February 25, 2019
I need to keep that memory front and center for a while.
When will I be invited to the Oscars so that I can witness these cool things myself?
