Sunday night’s Academy Awards celebrated the best big screen performances of 2023.
And while Brendan Fraser and Michelle Yeoh’s wins hit the headlines, there was a whole host of unforgettable moments which had everyone talking.
From a donkey on stage to Hugh Grant’s viral interview and host Jimmy Kimmel joking about that Will Smith slap.
Then there were the all-important snubs as the prizes were announced.
Here’s everything you missed from the 95th Academy Awards..
Hugh Grant’s awkward interview
Viral moments: Sunday night’s Academy Awards celebrated the best big screen performances of 2023 and there was a whole host of unforgettable moments which had everyone talking
The night began on the red carpet, which saw Hugh Grant shut down Ashley Graham in a chat branded ‘the worst interview ever’.
The actor, 62, was not amused as he stepped out to the glitzy Los Angeles event, and openly showed his disdain towards the 34-year-old supermodel’s questions.
The Four Weddings and a Funeral star kept his answers to her questions as short as possible and made his blatant disinterest well known in the uncomfortable clip.
Kicking off the chat, bubbly Ashley exclaimed: ‘What was it like to be in Glass Onion? How fun is it to shoot something like that?’
But she was met with a cringeworthy response: ‘Well I’m barely in it, I was in it for about three seconds,’ Hugh quipped.
Viewers at home were left feeling rather embarrassed over the exchange, as they praise Ashley for how she handled the difficult situation and said the moment was ‘the worst’ since Will Smith’s infamous slap of Chris Rock at the 2022 ceremony.
Jimmy Kimmel is branded a ‘disgrace for ‘harassing’ Malala Yousafzai
Awkward: Host Jimmy Kimmel , who was widely criticised for ‘harassing’ Malala Yousafzai during a bizarre segment at the ceremony
Another awkward interview which went viral was Malala Yousafzai’s chat with Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel, who was widely criticised for ‘harassing’ her during a bizarre segment at the ceremony.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner, 25, who was a teenage education activist when she was shot in the face by Taliban militants in Pakistan in 2012, was left visibly uncomfortable when the presenter approached her during a break in proceedings.
Kimmel asked Ms Yousafzai, an executive producer of the short documentary Stranger At The Gate, an awkward question about Harry Styles and Chris Pine’s ‘spit-gate’ drama.

Kimmel joked: ‘You are going to have to tangle with Spider-Man’ as the camera fixed on Garfield who smiled awkwardly before opening his mouth wider in a hilarious grimace.
Fans quickly swarmed social media to share their delight, with one writing: ‘It would not be a legit Oscar night without Andrew Garfield being a meme.
