Our YBF directors got some shine at the Oscars this year. Ava DuVernay and Barry Jenkins stepped out on the red carpet before finding out if they’ll be adding “Oscar winner” to their title. Peep their red carpet flicks inside…
We’re saying yes to this dress!
Fab directress Ava DuVernay is always so elegant and classy and tonight wasn’t any different. The “13th” director looked whimsical in a lace embellished princess gown by Ashi Studio as she sashayed down the red carpet at the 80th Academy Awards. "13th" was in the running for Best Documentary Feature, but Ezra Edelman's "O.J.: Made In America" nabbed the award.
He DID cop the award for Best Adapted Screenplay though!
Moonlight has been sweeping up awards throughout awards season, so it was no surprise that director Barry Jenkins made his way on the carpet. The coming-of-age film nabbed eight nominations this year.
The Fences cast - including Jovan Adepo, Russell Hornsby, cutie Saniyya Sidney, Stephen Henderson and Mykelti Williamson - also stopped for photo-ops on the carpet.
