The 90th annual Academy Awards aired live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California on Sunday night. Stars and celebrities came decked out and slayed with their top designer outfits and gowns on the red carpet.
HTGAM Star Viola Davis rocked a beautiful slick back curly ponytail, crystal hoop earrings and a hot pink sequin gown. She presented the award for Best Supporting Actor.
Hollywood actress Octavia Spencer, who’s known for her powerful roles in films The Help and Hidden Figures, was snubbed as she was up for Best Supporting Actress for the film, The Shape of Water. However, Octavia did make history. She is now tied with Viola Davis as the most nominated Afrian-American actress in Oscar history.
One major highlight of the night came from comedian and breakout actress Tiffany Haddish alongside fellow actress Maya Rudolph. The ladies gave us laughs with some authentic comedy, including holding their shoes in their hands, as every girl in the world can relate to, because their feet were killing them in heels.

And as some of us are slowly coming down from our ‘Wakanda High,’ Black Panther actress and star Lupita Nyong’O graced the Oscar stage in a beautiful black and gold gown alongside actor Kumail Nanjiani, stating how proud they are to be immigrants of their native countries and stand with fellow ‘Dreamers’ all over the country.
The Oscars wasn’t all just talk and awards as the show had some great performances, including R&B singer and actress Mary J Blige. Although she was snubbed in the Best Song Category, she gave a phenomenal performance of “Mighty River” from the motion picture Mudbound, which her onscreen performance led to her Oscar Nomination.
