This year the Oscars gave us all the feels with some of the sweetest moments, whether they made history with their first Oscar win or gave really cute shoutouts to family and friends. Here are some of the best wholesome moments:
Angela Bassett showed us she is genuinely QUEEN MOTHER when the camera caught her comforting Austin Butler by holding his hands.
Harrison Ford and Ke Huy Quan’s reunion when Everything Everywhere All At Once won Best Picture was iconic.
When Irish Goodbye won Best Live Action Short, everyone helped actor James Martin celebrate his birthday by singing to him in place of an acceptance speech.
Every moment of Ke Huy Quan’s speech, from honoring his mother to sharing that he almost gave up on his career was a tearjerker moment.
But, even before the speech — just how Ariana Debose gets choked up saying his name was absolutely adorable.
Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors gave a direct shoutout to Angela Bassett (a callback from Black Panther) after she didn’t take home the award for Best Supporting Actress.
Everyone’s favorite character from Banshees of Inisherin appeared as a comfort donkey for emotional guests.
Legendary actor James Hong struck the best poses on the red carpet.
When Michelle Yeoh repped all the legendary women who had long, outstanding careers in the industry.
Jimmy Kimmel tried his best to catch Malala Yousafzai off-guard with a silly question about #SpitGate, but her response her perfect.
When John Travolta’s voice started to break when announcing “In Remembrance” for his costars Kirstie Alley and Olivia Newton-John, it was heartbreaking — but his subtle tribute to Olivia was beautiful.
When “Naatu Naatu” from the Tollywood film RRR, won the Oscar for Best Original Song, we were treated with the sweetest original acceptance speech/song.
When “The Daniels” accepted one of many Oscars for Everything Everywhere All At Once for their Best Original Screenplay, everyone felt seen with their references to imposter syndrome and the teachers that helped them along the way.
