The best costume category of this 96th edition of the Oscars will be remembered for a long time. Seen in Barbie where he played a mermaid, ex-wrestler John Cena arrived on stage naked. The envelope containing the winner’s name hid his private parts. When it was time to open it, it was draped in a peach-colored curtain.

This is one of the first surprises of the evening promised by the master of ceremonies, Jimmy Kimmel.

The joy of victory and so much hullabaloo made the winner Holly Waddington, head costume designer of Poor Creatures, lose her composure a little. The female version of the myth of Frankenstein’s creature held up in the technical categories: best costumes, makeup and hair and sets. The satire by Yorgos Lanthimos, in the running 11 times, is provisionally at the top of the list.
