The Best Oscars Moments You Didn’t See During The Show

Academy Awards, Lady Gaga

The 2019 Academy Awards took place on Sunday night and had no shortage of star-studded moments during the show. Lady Gaga made history with her Oscar win, Rami Malek took home the Best Actor trophy for playing Freddie Mercury, Spike Lee was finally recognized, and Green Book was named Best Picture with mixed results.

With the biggest names in Hollywood and music in attendance, there was ample opportunity for A-listers to rub shoulders. But just like any good film, the proof is in the pictures. Check out the best moments you didn’t see during last night’s Oscars.
