The 90th Academy Awards took place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on March 5, 2018, Beijing time. What were some of the highlights at this year's Oscars? Let's take a look!
When You Hear Your Name Called, Don't Get up Right Away
During the presentation of the winner for Best Picture at the 2017 Academy Awards, a mix-up occurred when presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway received the wrong envelope and erroneously handed the trophy to the wrong film. In what is considered the most shocking mishap in the history of the Oscars, the duo at first declared the Best Picture of the year to be La La Land, but right away figured out something was amiss as the correct winner was Moonlight.
As such, at this year's Academy Awards, host Jimmy Kimmel joked: "This year when you hear your name called, don't get up right away".
Most Adorable Award-Presenter
C-3PO, R2D2 and BB8, robot characters from the Star Wars series, simultaneously boarded the stage at this year's Academy Awards at the cheer of many fans of the epic galactic franchise. BB8 even functioned as the presenter for the Best Animated Short Film category and is coined the most adorable award-presenter.
