It’s been the highlight of the year for many people, but what do you actually wear to get in on the Oscar-winning spirit?
It’s a question that has been on the minds of many a viewer, and it was only recently that there was some clarity on the matter.
“I can’t tell you what it is,” admitted producer and star Kate Winslet, as she sat on a sofa at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) to discuss her dress choices at the event.
“It’s not a question for me to say.
It’s not something that I think about.
I’m really excited about this season.
I think that’s the best year of our lives.
I mean, I think there’s so much to celebrate in this show.”
The Oscar nominees, nominated in five categories (Best Picture, Actor in a Leading Role, Actress in a Supporting Role, Musical or Comedy), were presented by actor George Clooney, and the evening’s event kicked off with a presentation from the late actor’s daughter, Emma.
“It was a real privilege to be at the ceremony,” she said.
“There was a great feeling of celebration in the room, and there was a lot of excitement for the Oscars and for us to have the honour of going there.”
It was the first time the awards were presented in front of a live audience since 2013, but it’s a feeling the Clooney family have been keeping.
“We’re so excited about what we can do this year, and we’ve been thinking about this since we heard about the Oscars,” Emma said.
“I mean, we’ve just had a great year in general and this is the best time for us.
So, I’m super excited to be here.”
It’s a moment that was sure to raise eyebrows, as the Clooneys took the stage first to present the nominees.
“The whole family was just really excited,” said Kate.
“Everyone was excited and excited and very excited.
They were all in a big, happy mood, and that was pretty awesome.””
And then I was just so surprised to see the light blue suit.
I couldn’t believe it,” said George.
“And then Kate was like, ‘Oh my God, it’s so cool.
I thought you wore a light blue, and I never thought you’d wear that.'””
I think the biggest thing that surprised me was that it wasn’t a rain suit, it was a rain jacket,” Emma added.
“You know, I don’t know why, but I thought it was weird that they would show you two different suits at the same time.”
It seems the awards show’s first-ever rain suit challenge is one that could change the way people dress at the Oscars, but the family didn’t rule it out for the foreseeable future.
“This year is really different to last year,” Kate said.
