Last Monday, the traditional annual reception in honor of the Oscar nominees was held in Los Angeles. The Beverly Hilton gathered a lot of famous guests, but all the attention of photographers was riveted on the contenders for the golden statues. Among them were Lady Gaga, Rami Malek, Glenn Close, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams and others on the red carpet.

32-year-old Lady Gaga caused a considerable stir because of the nomination “The best female role.” For the evening, the star chose an elegant image: a white dress on the floor, neat styling and elegant accessories from Yvan Tufenkjian. Oscar nominee in the category of “best supporting actress” Rachel Weiss also preferred pastel colors along with her, although her heroine in Favorite was distinguished by her harsh character and love for her male costume. Glenn Close, the main rival of Lady Gaga in the fight for the title of best actress this year, appeared in a suit on the red carpet.

The event itself was held in an informal and friendly atmosphere. For the nominees such an evening is a great opportunity to get to know each other and chat with other stars, directors and other cinematographers. Already in the middle of the month, film academics will finally determine the winners who will be announced at the 91st Oscar award ceremony on February 24, 2019.
