Best of the Oscars Red Carpet

It is the biggest night of nights for Hollywood stars, the 92nd Academy Awards.

Currently, underway in Los Angeles, the red carpet was marred early with heavy rains putting an early dampener on the glitz and glamour. However, stars braved the cold and wet and gathered together for a night of glitz and glam.

The ceremony has again gone hostless opting instead to have a vast array of celebrity guests announcing the awards.

Hollywood A-Listers kept red carpet looks this year “classic” with subtle shades of pink as the dominating fashion choice. Princess and other classic silhouettes were also a popular choice with the stars, with fewer opting to take fashion risks this year.

We’ve done a close inspection of 2020 Oscars red carpet looks and handpicked some of our favourites and not so favourites.

Enjoy!

Montaigne wins Eurovision – Australia Decides

Australia has decided to send Montaigne to the Netherlands in May, to represent us at Eurovision!

The 24-year-old Sydney based artist won the ‘Australia Decides’ competition at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre last night, beating out nine other performers.

She’s received the most votes of a jury and the public tally, earning a total score of 107, seven points ahead of second-placed Casey Donovan.

Vanessa Amorosi came in third with 82 points.

Montaigne took out the top spot with a very active performance of ‘Don’t Break Me’, dressed like a clown with a blue wig and red cheeks.

She’s now heading to the Netherlands in May, to take part in the final rounds of the international song contest.

“This is wild! I started out just grateful to be a part of Eurovision but this is fricken insane!

Thank you to everyone who gave me their vote, I’m so excited to go to Rotterdam and give it a red hot go,” Montaigne said.

Creative Director of Eurovision Paul Clarke says Montaigne is a total original.

“Her song had the best contemporary pop sound, and it was a shot performance – the first ever at Eurovision.

“We are delighted that Casey Donovan won the public vote with a song from talented songwriter Justine Elkatchi in a very tight contest.

“It was a hugely successful night and thanks to everyone who took part, SBS and our Queensland partners. Congrats to Montaigne!”

Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate says Eurovision is such a terrific performance for the Gold Coast.

“Wow, what a night! So many wonderful performances and so much talent being showcased right here on the Gold Coast.

“Our city’s exposure to this global audience is priceless and I can’t wait to see Montaigne perform against all of Europe,” Mayor Tate said.
