Lakeith Stanfield is slowly but surely becoming one of our fave actors to see at awards shows and events. He’s always doing something random and out the box.

Speaking of weird, his appearance during the 2018 Academy Awards was weird, and he said so too. Host Jimmy Kimmel opened up telling the actors to keep their acceptance speeches short. And if they didn’t, Lakeith will storm the stage dressed up as his Get Out character, yelling, “GET OUT!”

He even popped out on stage to "demonstrate."

Also, Jimmy offered the person with the shortest speech an $18,000 jet ski.

Peep the clip below:

After his skit, he tweeted:




And then he ran into Taraji P. Henson:

Rapper Common was back at the Oscars as he was in the running for another golden statue. "The Chi" actor got it dapper in a black tailored Armani suit. It was simpley, yet perfect for the occasion.

Not only was he nominated for an award, Common also was tapped to perform. He hit the stage alongside Andra Day to perform their duet “Stand Up For Something,” which was nominated for Best Original Song for the 2017 film Marshall. Before the performance, he snapped it up with Andra and songwriter Diane Warren (who co-wrote "Stand Up For Something").

After 9 nominations, Diane wants a Oscar, dammit!

Director John Singleton and "Snowfall" actor Damson Idris brought the Wakanda vibes on the carpet.

Director Jordan Peele won the Best Original Screenplay Oscar for Get Out, making history as the first black person to win in that category and only the fourth nominated after John Singleton, Spike Lee and Suzanne de Passe. Singleton was nominated for Best Original Play and Best Director in 1992 for his classic film, Boyz N The Hood.
