Oscars 2019: Our Favorite Couples on the Red Carpet
As far as award show season goes, the Oscars are arguably the most prestigious. You know what that means—the red carpet is packed, the fashion is next-level, and the Champagne is flowing (although, arguably not as heavily as it does at the Golden Globes, which is one big Hollywood party!). Put those three together and one thing is certain: Your favorite celebrity couples are all in one place—and even the most private of duos freely put their relationships on display for the Academy Awards. It also doesn't hurt that they all look great doing it.
The 2019 Academy Awards undoubtedly lived up to this expectation. Some of Hollywood's most high-profiles twosomes stepped out to make the red carpet their date night, including longtime couples like Melissa McCarthy (who's up for Best Actress for her role in Can You Ever Forgive Me?) and her husband of 14 years, Ben Falcone, as well as Sam Rockwell (who's nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his work in Vice) and Leslie Bibb, who have been married for ten years. Other noteable attendees? Bradley Cooper (who received an Oscar nod for his role in A Star Is Born) and Irina Shayk, Amy Adams (she was recognized for her performance in Vice) and Darren Le Gallo, organizing expert Marie Kondo and her husband, Takumi Kawahara, and Jennifer Lopez and Rodriguez.
In the hours leading up to the big event, there's plenty of anticipation and nerves—it's always tangible. But what's also palpable is the incredible support these couples have for one another. For these A-list pairs, it doesn't matter who takes home the trophy at the end of the night. It's obvious that they feel like they've already won. Click through to discover which of your favorite celebrity couples made the 2019 Academy Awards a night to remember.
Jennifer Lopez & Alex Rodriguez
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez wowed with their ultra-luxe looks. Lopez, who will take to the Oscar's stage as a presenter, donned a reflective Tom Ford gown. Rodriguez chose a statement white tuxedo jacket.
Melissa McCarthy & Ben Falcone
Melissa McCarthy, who's nominated for Best Actress for her portrayal of Lee Israel in Can You Ever Forgive Me?, walked the red carpet with her husband, Ben Falcone. The duo will celebrate their 14th wedding anniversary this October.
Mahershala Ali & Amathus Sami-Karim

Bradley Cooper & Irina Shayk
All eyes are on Bradley Cooper at the 2019 Oscars: Not only is he nominated for Best Actor for A Star Is Born, but the film, which he directed, is also up for Best Picture. On such an important night, he was lucky to have the support of his long-time girlfriend, Irina Shayk, who stunned in a backless gown with fringe detailing.
Amy Adams & Darren Le Gallo
Amy Adams—who's in the running for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Vice—and husband Darren Le Gallo walked the red carpet looking more like a glamorous bride and groom than a high-profile Hollywood couple thanks to her white gown and his sharp tuxedo.
Adam Driver & Joanne Tucker
Adam Driver and wife Joanne Tucker may be one of Hollywood's more private couples, but there was no way they'd miss the 91st Academy Awards: Driver's work as Flip Zimmerman in BlacKkKlansman earned him a Best Supporting Actor nomination.
Pharrell & Helen Lasichanh
Power couple Pharrell and Helen Lasichanh never disappoint in terms of red-carpet fashion. Lasichanh's all-black look (from her ruffled dress to her tights and heels) complemented Pharrell's choice of a camo suit, which featured shorts rather than a classic pant.
Sam Rockwell & Leslie Bibb
/*-->*/Sam Rockwell and wife, Leslie Bibb, are clearly in sync after a decade of marriage. The duo both wore Armani for the Oscars, where they hope Rockwell will take home the award for Best Supporting Actor for his work as George W. Bush in Vice.
Rami Malek & Lucy Boynton
First-time Oscar nominee Rami Malek stands a good chance of taking home the award for Best Actor (he's nominated for his interpretation of Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody). His co-star-turned-girlfriend, Lucy Boynton, supported him on the red carpet.
Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos
After 20 years of marriage, it's clear that Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos have perfected the art of serving up a major fashion moment. Even standing alongside Ripa, who wore a statement gray gown, Consuelos made an impression in a classic black tuxedo.
Lisa Bonet & Jason Momoa
We love when couples choose coordinating red-carpet attire. Jason Momoa turned out in a blush velvet tuxedo while his wife, Lisa Bonet, donned a crystal-embellished gown that featured an inlay of the same hue.
Marie Kondo & Takumi Kawahara
Date night definitely sparks joy for organizing expert Marie Kondo! The Netflix star, who wore a pink floral gown by Jenny Packham, attended the Oscar's alongside her husband, Takumi Kawahara
