Oscars 2019: Melissa McCarthy & Brian Tyree Henry Hilariously Mock ‘The Favourite’ While Presenting Costume Award [PHOTO]
While presenting the award for Best Costume Design, McCarthy and Atlanta star Henry donned the lavish dresses worn by Olivia Colman and Rachel Weisz in Best Picture nominee The Favourite. McCarthy’s gown train even included the bunny rabbits Colman’s Queen Anne was constantly surrounded by in the period piece satire.
Stars roared with laughter as Henry and McCarthy — who is nominated for her leading role in Can You Ever Forgive Me? — kept serious expressions.
Despite what the bit may have suggested, The Favourite did not take home the Oscar for Costume Design. Black Panther won the award and made history by doing so, as Ruth Carter became the first black woman to win in that category.
People on social media also unsurprisingly showed utter delight in the gag. One of the plush rabbits even got a close-up shot!
