Rachel Weisz won hearts and minds, Lady Gaga went conventional and the gender-fluid ‘gown-cedo’ made its debut … but one colour dominated
In the piñata that is Oscars night, it’s not till the party gets started that you find out what is truly happening. When things get wild is when it all comes tumbling out. This feels particularly true if you watch the ceremony on UK time, when the juicy stuff happens well after any sensible Sunday-night bedtime. The film that isn’t supposed to be win best picture winning best picture. Gaga and Cooper turning their Shallow performance into a steamy serenade. Billy Porter debuting the gown-cedo (tux from the waist up, dress from the waist down). Lady Gaga’s 128.54 carat Tiffany diamond. Melissa McCarthy spoofing The Favourite in a dalmation cape covered with stuffed bunnies.
