Oscars 2018: Our Favorite Couples on the Red Carpet
This year marks the 90th anniversary of the annual Academy Awards, and while the purpose of the Oscars is to celebrate the best films of the season, we took the opportunity to celebrate some of our favorite celebrity couples, too. The event brings together the biggest names in the entertainment industry, including the Hollywood pairings that we love to follow. And there's no better place than the red carpet to catch a glimpse of these adorable relationships in action.
The milestone event took place on Sunday, March 4, and was held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Considering the fact that it occurred in the country's center of stardom, we weren't surprised to see tons of famous faces in attendance. But we were most excited about was the number of dating, engaged, and married A-listers who walked the carpet together. Longtime couple Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos entered the Oscars together as always, while Sam Rockwell and Leslie Bibb (who have been quietly married for over 10 years!) made their Academy Awards debut. Best Director nominee Jordan Peele attended the show with his wife of two years, Chelsea Peretti, as did Viola Davis and her husband, Julius Tennon.
