Meryl Streep and JLo at Oscars 2015

The Academy Awards is THE event of the calendar year without a doubt. It brings together numerous actors, directors, producers and other incredibly big names from the film industry and celebrates the previous year’s achievements and accomplishments.

Every year, we cover the best dressed from the red carpet. However, this year, because the red carpet was a complete disappointing fail [whoops!], we are changing our route a bit to make room for the ‘aww’ moments that we saw at the event. And believe us when we say; you too will be smitten! So  – the aww moments from the Oscars 2015:

When Jennifer Aniston picked up Emma Stone

Emma Stone and Jennifer Aniston are both undoubtedly the sweethearts on the red carpet. And so when we saw Jennifer Aniston totally picking up Emma Stone in a bear hug of sorts, we completely went ‘aww’.

When Oprah Winfrey got the LEGO Oscar

While The Lego Movie was notably snubbed by the Academy when Best Animated Picture nominees were announced, the movie’s popular soundtrack was up for Best Original Song (though it lost to Selma’s “Glory”). The toy marketer got a big boost online when “Everything Is Awesome” was performed early in the program by The Lonely Island alongside artists Tegan and Sara, with Questlove on drums. Lego artist Nathan Sawaya also helped boost the brand’s visibility by creating Lego Oscars that were given out during the song performance to several stars.

Oprah was one of the recipients! Her receiving the LEGO Oscar was ‘aww’ of course, but her reaction was the real ‘aww’!

A truly moving moment was when we could see David Oyelowo, who played Martin Luther King Jr. in the film Glory shedding tears over John Legend’s performance.
