Nudity, Al Pacino’s slip up and a dog who stole the Oscars

Posted by

There were some more unusual moments beyond the award announcements at last night’s Oscars, here’s a quick look at what you might have missed:

  • John Cena shuffled on stage and presented an Academy Award category for best costume design while naked
  • Acting legend Al Pacino also had people sitting up in their chairs as he hesitated before announcing Oppenheimer as the best picture winner – and then uttered his announcement so casually
  • Messi the dog, a border collie who plays Snoop in a French courtroom drama appeared at the Los Angeles ceremony, sitting in a plush red seat with a black bow-tie around his neck
  • Billie Eilish, Mark Ruffalo and Ramy Youssef sported red pins in support of a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas
  • Avi Arad, CEO of Marvel Studios, wore a yellow ribbon pin showing solidarity with hostages who are still being held in captivity by Hamas since the 7 October 2023 attack on Israel
  • Host Jimmy Kimmel made a return to the Dolby Theatre for his fourth time hosting the Oscars – one of his jokes aimed at Donald Trump quipped: “Isn’t it past your jail time?”
