Oscars 2024: The 39 Moments You Need To See From This Year's Awards

Red carpet mishaps, Kenergy and political statements all made this year's Academy Awards a memorable night.

Three TV/movie scenes: two actors singing into a microphone, a woman holding an award, a shirtless man covered by a sign

Of course, for even the most devoted of film fans, the idea of staying up all night to follow the action live can be a little off-putting, meaning lots of us might miss the annual ceremony.

Fortunately for you, we were following the whole thing as it happened, and we’ve rounded up 39 of the night’s stand-out moments.

Here’s what you missed at the 2024 Oscars...

1. Vanessa Hudgens debuted a pregnancy bump – announcing that she’s pregnant with her first child!

2. Poor Liza Koshy... The collective ‘OHHHHHH’
