We here at 22 Words have just the tiniest crush on like the entire cast of Crazy Rich Asians, so we were glued to our televisions on Sunday during the Oscars keeping our eyes peeled for any new fun shenanigans or even better, hints on Crazy Rich Asians 2. And while we didn't hear anything in the way of a sequel, we did get some of the former.
Gemma Chan, star and complete boss of this summer's biggest (in our hearts) movie Crazy Rich Asians brought a little something extra to the ceremony, because apparently "they don't serve dinner," which is insane for an award show that goes from like 4 pm until 9 pm. And with hair and makeup and everything, you're not eating before lunch. So, you know, like a friggin genius, she came up with a plan weeks, if not months in advance. And now it's about to be the biggest Oscar dress trend of 2020.
Gemma Chan is a national treasure. Or, you know, a British one at least.
via: GettyAnd after her insanely huge movie, Crazy Rich Asians killed it at the box office this year, her and the rest of her cast were invited to the Oscars.
Gemma Chan knows how to put together an outfit.We saw it in Crazy Rich Asians, we saw it on the red carpet, we saw it in our hearts. Not kidding.
But to be fair, the entire cast of Crazy Rich Asians looks pretty darn good in formal wear.I want to watch this scene again just because of how much better looking everyone is than me.
I mean...Come on. It's not fair. This was like the sexiest cast of 2018. Other than maybe the Avengers, but you know, that's cheating.
But at the Oscars, Gemma Chan was hiding something.And that something? Hidden pockets. A true genius move, and any girl's dream. Seriously, did she sew those pockets in herself or can we just order dresses with pockets in them now?
Check out her hidden stash she revealed after the ceremony.
Gemma Chan just pulled COOKIES out of the pockets of her #Oscars dress. THAT is what we call a QUEEN. https://t.co/GMB4yfHt1S— Entertainment Tonight (@Entertainment Tonight)1551077643.0
Also, side note...Good on her for going for the rice crackers and not the cookies, because I would not have that kind of self-control with the amount of champaign floating around that building.
It seems kinda messed up that they don't at least hand out a snack or two.It's a long ceremony and the red carpet starts around 4 pm in Los Angeles.
And they totally do provide meals at the Golden Globes.Or... maybe that's just booze and floral arrangements.
And hey, now we know why Patton Oswalt took his Emmy to Arbys.That looks... even sadder than the joke intends for it to be.
Okay, but back to Gemma.We almost forgot who we were obsessing over... but we're back!
We now present to you, The Best Twitter Reactions: Gemma Chan's Cookies Edition.

via: GettyYes. This friggin star right here.
Damn is right.And she decided to wear yellow because of Jon Chu's choice to end Crazy Rich Asians with that great cover of Coldplay's Yellow.
Henry Golding went with the white vest and it's low key inspiring.

Awkwafina rocked this bad-ass suit because she's cooler than all of us.

And Michelle Yeoh looked like the freaking Fairy Godmother.
