Awards season is in full swing and last night, it was the turn of the hotly anticipated Oscars.

The Oscars are one of the biggest events in Hollywood…

And the biggest names in the industry hit the red carpet tonight to see who will be honored with an award this year.

Especially when it comes to the 9 flicks that are going head to head in the “Best Picture” category.

Twitter has exploded with Oscar-related debates and it seems as though everyone’s got an opinion about who they want to see win an award. They’ve also shared their thoughts on Eminem’s performance but you’ll find out about that a little later on…

Especially given the fact that so many critically-acclaimed movies have hit screens recently.

But of course, it’s not only about the movies.

The Oscars is a prime time for fans to see their favorites actors and actresses showcase just what they’re made of. From outfits to speeches, the award ceremony has become a night to make a statement.

From celebrity slip-ups to record-breaking selfies, we’re expecting to see a whole array of new and exciting moments that will leave their own print in award history.

Celebrities have used the stage to share experiences, awareness and give speeches that have sent ripples throughout the film industry.

And this year’s winners certainly used this advantage.

There were a lot of worthy winners…

Huge names such as Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, Margot Robbie, Scarlett Johansson, and Leonardo DiCaprio took home awards last night.

He won the Best Actor Award for his leading role in Joker, and it’s safe to say he’s an extremely deserving winner.

The famous hosts who present the awards.

And he presented this award with his The Peanut Butter Falcon co-star Zack Gottsagen, who has Down’s Syndrome.

For those who haven’t seen The Peanut Butter Falcon

It centers around a man with Down’s Syndrome (Zack) who, with the help of his friend (Shia), attempts to pursue a career as a wrestler.

But the internet was not happy when Shia was seen to smile when Zack stumbled on his lines.

And many interpreted it as a cruel gesture towards his co-star.

But we must say that the majority of the haters online didn’t even know who Zack Gottasgen was.

There are many people out there supporting the actor and defending him.

And they have stressed the fact that the pair are indeed very close, especially after working on the movie together last year.

Shia was offered the chance to present at the Oscars, but he only accepted on the condition that Zack could present alongside him.

And Shia was only smiling while experiencing the moment of a lifetime with his friend.

But we think that Shia and Zack did an immaculate job together in presenting an Oscar Award… well done, guys!
