The Academy Awards are just hours away, and on Saturday, Feb. 27, stars like Jennifer Garner, Jared Leto and Sofia Vergara took the stage of the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood to rehearse, so tonight’s show goes off without a hitch. See all the pics here!
We’re so excited for the 88th Academy Awards, and so is Jennifer Garner. So much, in fact, that her excitement led her to kiss Benicio del Toro while rehearsing for the Feb. 28 ceremony. And we have the photos!
Aside from some backstage kissing, stars were rehearsing their lines and taking their cues inside the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Saturday, Feb. 27, in preparation for tonight’s big show. In the series of photos, which you can see by clicking through our gallery above, Jared Leto practices handing over an Oscar by presenting one to Margot Robbie, and Patricia Arquette does the same with Morgan Freeman. Hilariously, Chris Evans tries to get one for himself, but he fails miserably. Kevin Hart is also seen taking a quick phone call while on stage. “Where am I sitting?” he reportedly asked, according to Daily Mail. “I was about to say all the black people should be in the first row.”
Many Hollywood stars had fun at rehearsal, but Cate Blanchett took her stint very seriously. She even ran through her presentation several times, Daily Mail reports. “Is it here? Did I stop in my spot? Ish?” she asked the stage manager before adding, “You can always re-cast.”
