Oscars 2022: Mila Kunis shimmers in a pink satin gown as she arrives with husband Ashton Kutcher

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher looked as loved-up as ever as they arrived together at the Academy Awards red carpet on Sunday in Hollywood.

Mila, 38, looked glamorous in a shimmering pink satin gown ahead of her presenting gig at the ceremony, while Ashton, 44, cut a chiseled figure in a classic black tuxedo.

This year’s ceremony had returned to its regular venue of the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood after being held at Union Station last year.

Lovebirds: Mila Kunis, 38, and her husband Ashton Kutcher, 44, looked glamorous as they put on a united front at the Academy Awards in Hollywood on Sunday

Mila lit up the red carpet with her lustrous dress, which featured a single thick shoulder strap and highlighted her toned arms.

The low-cut outfit was ruched across her bust and midriff, and featured a slim belt in a matching shade.

The Family Guy star’s dress reached down to the ground, and a train tied to her waist trailed behind her dramatically.

Mila wore her brunette locks swept back to highlight her elegantly made-up visage and her dangling leaf-shaped earrings.

Ashton couldn’t keep his hands off his wife, and the two appeared to beam ear-to-ear as they shared a laugh.

He wore a black tuxedo with shawl-style lapels.

Mila was set to present during the all-star ceremony, though her husband didn’t appear to be among those taking to the stage.

The couple have lately been devoting their time to charitable efforts to find housing for refugees fleeing the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The efforts are personal to Mila, who emigrated from Ukraine to the United States with her family in 1991 when she was just a child. 

So far, the couple have raised more than $35 million in donates on the GoFundMe, $3 million of which came from them.  

In a rather bold move, this year’s show will be hosted by a trio of stars — Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes — as it has gone without a host over the last three years.

The trio have made history, as it is the first time there is an all-female host lineup, and they are also the first emcees since 2018.

Netflix’s Power Of The Dog led the nominations with 12 nods, including Best Picture, Best Director and recognition for all of its top actors: Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Along with The Power Of The Dog and Dune, the nominees for best picture are: Belfast, CODA, Don’t Look Up, Drive My Car, Licorice Pizza, King Richard, Nightmare Alley and West Side Story.

No streaming service has ever won Best Picture, but half of the 10 nominees were released by streamers. This year, the odds may be better than ever that Netflix — which led all studios with 27 nominations — or another service will finally break through. 

In addition to Mila, the A-list presenters include Bill Murray, Lady Gaga, Kevin Costner, Samuel L. Jackson, Zoë Kravitz, Lupita Nyong’o. Anthony Hopkins, Lily James and Daniel Kaluuya.

As if that already wasn’t enough, John Leguizamo, Simu Liu, Rami Malek, Rosie Perez, Chris Rock, Naomi Scott, Wesley Snipes, Uma Thurman, John Travolta, Yuh-jung Youn, Ruth E. Carter, Halle Bailey, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, Jamie Lee Curtis, Woody Harrelson, Shawn Mendes, Tyler Perry, Tracee Ellis Ross, Stephanie Beatriz, DJ Khaled, Jennifer Garner, H.E.R., Tiffany Haddish, Tony Hawk, Elliot Page, Kelly Slater and Shaun White will also be taking to the stage.
