With another Oscars in the Hollywood history books, it was time for the stars to celebrate.
And that they did all over Los Angeles on Sunday night. After the annual ceremony wrapped inside the Dolby Theater with Green Book taking home Best Picture, this year’s winners grabbed their golden statues and headed out to party.
One of the first stops as always was the Governors Ball, where the 2019 victors could get their new awards engraved. First-time winner Rami Malek really got the party started when he grabbed a bottle of Piper-Heidsieck champagne, shook it up and popped off the cork. According to an insider, everybody cheered as he sprayed the bubbly. “He was clearly in a celebratory mood popping bottles!” the source said.
The night was just as fun for all the famous families taking in the special night, including the Bohemian Rhapsody winner’s. Malek’s mom and siblings could be spotted mingling with friends and having a great time at the Governors Ball and were later snapped all together inside Fox’s after-party.
In addition to all the mingling, sipping and snacking, there of course was dancing. Inside the Governors Ball, Keegan-Michael Key was spotted getting his groove on with wife Elisa Pugliese and Angela Bassett on the dance floor to Beyoncé‘s “Crazy in Love.” “Their dance circle was definitely a highlight,” a source told E! News. “Many people circled them to cheer and take photos and videos.”
On a night like the Oscars, how can you not dance? In addition to the moves, there were also sweet co-star reunions (we see you Jamie Foxx and Kerry Washington!), star-studded selfies, beloved couples, some adorable smooches and even an unexpected friendship.
Inside Guy Oseary and Madonna‘s Oscars after-party, photographer JR captured the pop icon embracing the laughing first-time Oscar winner for Time, an unexpected sight given their history of going back and forth in the media. Are these two friends now? It certainly looks like it.
Needless to say, we’re crazy in love with this year’s after-party sightings. Join the party virtually with E!’s gallery below!
