Absolute highlight of the night, Brilliant performance. The Academy Awards are the biggest night in entertainment of the year, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some out-there dresses every year!
It’s like no one else is in the room but them. Great song and performance ❤. The 91st annual Academy Awards, otherwise known as the Oscars, will air this Sunday, Feb. 24, with fan favorites Black Panther, Roma, Green Book, The Favourite, Vice, Bohemian Rhapsody, and A Star Is Born all nominated for best picture.
This was not a “blink and you’ll miss it” moment. No, Lady Gaga went big with her Oscars look, wearing the 128.54-carat, cushion-cut “Tiffany Diamond” necklace as the scene-stealing complement to her black Alexander McQueen gown. The necklace, which features one of the largest yellow diamonds in the world, has only been worn three times since its discovery in 1877 — most notably worn by Audrey Hepburn in promotional photos for Breakfast at Tiffany’s in 1961.
In the end, there was enough good news – or news that made a certain sort of sense – for this not to be simply another exasperating Academy Awards pageant of mysteriously over-promoted nonsense. Olivia Colman already had the title of queen of all our hearts, and, just when it looked as if Yorgos Lanthimos’s The Favourite was going to go home with nothing at all, Colman added the Academy Award to her bulging silverware cabinet – and of course gave a speech of great charm and grace.
Her prize acceptance game this year has been off the chart: stylish, polished and with just enough pinch-me-I’m-dreaming astonishment to rival Helen Mirren’s triumphal awards season tour of 2007, when she was winning everything for her own queenly performance. Colman (Anne), Mirren (Elizabeth II), Dench (Elizabeth I) … Brits in crowns generally do it for the Academy.
