Like anything in life, “practice makes perfect,” and that’s relevant to Academy Awards presenters, too. In case you’re curious, this is how celebrities practice announcing the Oscar winners, according to People.

Though all the presenters had their own ways of practicing at the February 25th rehearsal, there was a common theme: From what we saw, they were dressed in ordinary, everyday clothes. It makes sense that they’re saving their “Sunday best” for Sunday, aka today, for the actual Oscars. And, of course, we’re excited to see what dresses and outfits they wear!

ICYMI, Jimmy Kimmel is hosting the Oscars, and we can’t wait.

Of course, he has a ton of experience being on stage (every night!) in front of tons of people, but we’re guessing he, too, has to rehearse for the Oscars.

So what were the celebrities’ methods of Oscar-presenting at the rehearsal? Were they serious? More casual? Here’s what we learned.

Emma Stone & Ryan Gosling

Naturally, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling will present together, and both were casual and jokey at rehearsal, according to People. Stone had her hair pulled back and was in jeans while Gosling had on a baseball cap.

Cuuuute. After a few minutes of rehearsal, they were done, hugged goodbye, and left. We wonder if the pair will break into a dance number at the Oscars as they so easily did in La La Land? A girl can hope, right?!

Jennifer Aniston

At the rehearsal, Jennifer Aniston was casually dressed, too, in blue jeans cuffed above “sparkly sling-back heels” and her glasses.

While we don’t have the scoop on how all the presenters rehearsed or joked around, we do have a few more, along with some behind-the-scenes photos.

We’re sure Johnson and Doman had chemistry even at the rehearsal! She, too, got off script and looked to see where she’d be sitting at the actual ceremony.

Chris Evans was in on the wearing-jeans game, too, with black jeans and a baseball cap. He seemed to get excited when he saw his photo on an orchestra seat placard.

Amy Adams brought her 6-year-old daughter, Aviana, along. They both had on matching sweatshirts that read “Good Vibes Only” on them. Awww. They smiled at each other while Adams was onstage. Then, after practicing her lines, cuteness alert: Adams has Aviana come up to the stage. Aviana stumbles a bit on the stairs.


We don’t know about you, but we ~love~ to see actors casual and in their everyday wear. And from what we heard, they seem all set for presenting tonight! Of course, the Oscars are on soooon, at 5:30 P.S.T./8:30 E.S.T. on ABC, so we’d better go get ready!
