12 of our favourite behind-the-scenes shots from this year's Academy Awards

Feast your eyes.

WHEN THE EVENT itself is agonisingly long and we can’t remember who’s odds-on to take home the Academy Award for Sound Mixing, it’s no real surprise that many of us favour the Oscar red carpet over the actual ceremony.

We mean, we get full-length coverage of the gowns and eagle-eyes shots of the bling and if we love that, it’s hardly surprising we love the behind-the-scenes prep shots even more.

Let’s be honest, it’s reassuring to be reminded that these A-listers were  – until moments before – surrounded by an army of people, on hand with Spanx and Rescue Remedy. It takes a village, people.

Here we take a look at some of the best behind-the-scenes shots from the 2019 Academy Awards.

Zooey and Emily Deschanel’s en route to the big event. FYI: their dad, Caleb was nominated for Best Cinematography.

Need we say more about Billy Porter’s BTS shot?

There’s something weirdly soothing about Heidi Klum’s BTS prep video.
