The 93rd annual Academy Awards took place on Sunday April 25, and viewers were treated to so many amazing moments — including Glenn Close’s twerking.

The 93rd annual Academy Awards took place on Sunday, April 25, and while not many celebs attended the show, viewers were still treated to some pretty spectacular moments.

From Regina King’s amazing recovery on stage to Brad Pitt‘s sexy ponytail and Glenn Close’s twerking skills we loved seeing some of our favorite actors, actresses, directors and more celebrating together under the same roof. Want to know which moments we’ll remember years from now? Here are some of our favorites from the show (in no particular order):

1. There was no host this year, but Regina opened the show, and immediately after taking the stage, she almost tripped and fell on her face. Fortunately, she recovered quite amazingly and laughed off the moment by reminding everyone that anything can happen on “live TV”. Ain’t that the truth.

2. Later during the ceremony, Brad Pitt took the stage to present an award, and while he looked as dapper as always, we couldn’t help but notice his oh so sexy ponytail. More of that please! And thank you.

3. During another special moment of the night, Tyler Perry gave a powerful speech, during which he urged people to “refuse hate” and “blanket judgement”. This moment happened while the filmmaker was accepting the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for his charitable efforts.

4. Later, when the ceremony was nearing its end, Glenn Close literally jumped up on her feet and started twerking. It was glorious and probably the very best moment of the night.

5. Finally, we can’t forget all the winners. There were certainly some highlights this year, but we definitely loved watching Daniel Kaluuya accept his Oscar. Unfortunately, the late Chadwick Boseman was snubbed when the winner of Best Actor was revealed as Anthony Hopkins.

Obviously we loved a lot more than just those five moments listed above. So, to see the rest of our favorites from the Oscars, click through the gallery of photos above!

Angelina Jolie’s New Career Plans Revealed After She Says Brad Pitt Split Impacted Jobs

As for when Angelina Jolie will be “directing a movie again,” we’re hearing that the actress has a loose timeline in mind. The 45-year-old Maleficent star recently made it known that directing is where her true passions lie — something that became impractical after a “change in [her] family situation,” which was a hint at her split with Brad Pitt in 2016 — while speaking to Entertainment Weekly. While the mother of six admitted that this is why she “went back to doing a few acting jobs” so she could “be home more,” we learned what Angelina’s upcoming career plans are now that she is working out these “issues” with Brad.

“Since the moment she became a mom Angelina has always put her kids first. They come before anything and anyone. And with the divorce they have needed so much more of her time and attention so, as she said, taking on a big directing project just has not been feasible,” a source close to Angelina EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife, echoing what the actress herself said in her new interview. Angelina has not directed since the release of her 2017 feature, First They Killed My Father. However, “it is absolutely something she will tackle again,” our source clarifies, who adds, “She loves it but only when she can really give her all and right now her focus is still first and foremost on being a mom.”
So, what about right now? “She still wants to work but, as far as taking on an all-consuming project like directing a movie, she will wait until she feels the kids are ready for that. Until they are older,” our source further reveals, but adds, “But it won’t be that long, they’re all teenagers now.” Angelina and Brad’s youngest children — twins Vivienne and Knox — are now 12 years old, while Shiloh is 14, Zahara is 16, Pax is 17 and Maddox is already 19 and a college student.

“Angelina knows these years go by in the blink of an eye so it’s not just about what’s best for her kids,” our source continues. “She also doesn’t want to miss her time with them. She is savoring her time with her kids as much as she can, so she has no regrets about putting off directing a big project.” Indeed, Angelina takes bonding time with her children seriously — she’s often spotted out and about on shopping trips in Los Angeles with them!

“Her kids are the ultimate focus of everything, and she always emphasizes how grateful she is for every moment they agree to spend with her,” our source adds. “Like I said, they are teenagers now, so they are already starting to go all their own ways. They have their friends and all their activities, plus their schoolwork. They’re all very busy, so she doesn’t take it for granted that they still love spending time with her.”

While Angelina confessed that the end of her marriage did affect the jobs she was taking, “for the most part, her career and life are completely separate from her issues with Brad,” a second source, who’s also close to the Girl, Interrupted star, EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife. However, our second insider does say that these issues (i.e. their ongoing divorce case and custody battle) “have played a small part in her career trajectory in the last year.”

“It has just made things have an extra step to get completed. It takes a lot to be a super mom,” this source adds, referring to the loose ends Angelina and Brad have had to tend to over the past year. However, our source reveals that Angelina’s looking forward to the next chapter in her life by adding, “She is really looking forward to getting back on track though by the end of the year with her personal and professional life and return to the Angie she always has been. Her issues with Brad, though complicated, is not going to consume her in the near future. It is just something she must achieve for her own peace of mind and to move forward rather than backwards.”

Harrison Ford, Brad Pitt join Oscars starry presenting cast

After delaying two months due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Oscars are forging ahead with an in-person show at Los Angeles’ Union Station.

LOS ANGELES — The Oscars are aiming to be more like a movie than a television show and enlisting A-list stars like Harrison Ford, Brad Pitt, Halle Berry and Reese Witherspoon to help hand out statuettes.
They’ll be joined by the likes of Don Cheadle, Renee Zellweger, Regina King, Joaquin Phoenix, Rita Moreno, Laura Dern, Zendaya, Angela Bassett, Bryan Cranston, Marlee Matlin and last year’s best director winner Bong Joon Ho, the show’s producers said Monday.
“In keeping with our awards-show-as-a-movie approach, we’ve assembled a truly stellar cast of stars,” said producers Jesse Collins, Stacey Sher and Steven Soderbergh in a statement. “There’s so much wattage here, sunglasses may be required.”

After delaying two months due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Oscars are forging ahead with an in-person show at Los Angeles’ Union Station. It’ll be a scaled-back affair, with only presenters, nominees and their guests in attendance, but the producers are working to make it a must-see event amid critically low ratings for other awards shows during the pandemic. More talent will be announced in the coming weeks.
The 93rd Oscars will be broadcast live on ABC on April 25 at 8 p.m. Eastern.
