Working Hard or Hartley Working?
The This Is Us star Justin Hartley attended the Oscars this year, and he made sure to have some fun with the photographers. The actor posed for pics and joked around with the press photographer in between shots. Hartley also graciously stopped and snapped some selfies with his fans.
The 8-year-old star of Lion, Sunny Pawar, had a super fun Oscars ceremony. The young actor hung out with his dad all night -- where they hit up the bar for Diet Coke and waters -- while a slew of stars and Hollywood pros came up to excitedly meet the adorable scene stealer.

After posing for some selfies with other Oscar guests, Timberlake helped one woman feel better after she spilled her drink, telling her "You’re OK, dear." A few minutes later, his wife, Jessica Biel, joined him at the bar with her own glass of bubbly.
Toward the end of the night, Amy Adams departed to make her way to the Vanity Fair after-party. The five-time Oscar nominee ran into Chris Evans on her way out and told him about her evening plans, but it seems Evans wasn't ready to head out of the show just yet.
After it became clear that a mistake was made and La La Land didn't win Best Picture, there was quite a bit of confusion and chaos on the stage. But it didn't come close to the utter bewilderment of those in the audience -- especially the cast and crew of Moonlight, which was actually the real winner.
Many in the audience couldn't wrap their heads around the shocking mistake either, including 20-time Oscar nominee Meryl Streep, whose priceless reaction was captured on camera.
