We’re so excited! The biggest night in movies — the 88th Academy Awards — took place on Feb. 28 and gave us plenty of amazing moments that we’ll never forget. Browse through our gallery and see our favorites, including Lady Gaga’s performance, Leonardo DiCaprio’s big win, and more!
The 88th annual Academy Awards lit up the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California on Feb. 28 — there were so many memorable moments! From Lady Gaga‘s powerful performance to Leonardo DiCaprio‘s big win, we loved seeing all of our favorite actors together under one roof.
Here are some of our favorite moments from the show (in no particular order):
1. Clueless star Stacey Dash made an awkward appearance on stage during the Oscars, where she tried making a joke about Black History Month to an unamused audience. Following the bit, she was dissed online by Shonda Rhimes, Demi Lovato and more.
2. Whoopi Goldberg, Tracy Morgan, and more mocked #OscarsSoWhite with a hilarious montage of skits from this year’s hottest films, including The Danish Girl, The Martian and more.
3. The Weeknd gave the Oscars a much-needed bolt of excitement when he performed his hit song, “Earned It” from Fifty Shades Of Grey.
4. Lady Gaga performed her Oscar-nominated song, “Til It Happens To You,” which is about the pain and heartache of sexual abuse. Towards the end of the performance, she was even joined on stage by a crowd of women and men who are all survivors of sexual abuse. It was a super emotional moment that we’ll never forget.
5. Leonardo DiCaprio finally won the Oscar he’s always wanted. Obviously, he should have earned one years ago, but the fact that he hadn’t is what made this award that much more special.
