By Heather Cichowski

Rebel Wilson might not have taken home an Academy Award at the 2020 Oscars on Feb. 9, but she won the awards ceremony and parties thanks to a special escort from Brad Pitt and a kiss from Elton John!

From the moment the Australian actress graced the red carpet looking like Old Hollywood royalty in a custom Prabal Gurung gown, Rebel appeared to have a blast! In fact, the Cats actress was already working on her Academy Awards prep during rehearsals for the show last week.

Taking to Instagram ahead of the 92nd Annual Academy Awards, Rebel shared a photo of how she was "bags'ing" a seat between Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood co-stars Brad and Leonardo DiCaprio.

During the actual awards ceremony, Rebel made good on her plans to have a moment with Brad. She uploaded a series of photos of herself with the newly minted Best Supporting Actor winner. She simply captioned the post, "Told ya x"

According to People reports, the actress met Brad backstage. She was getting ready to present an award with her Cats co-star James Corden and Brad had just delivered his acceptance speech. The two chatted and presumably snapped their photos before Brad escorted Rebel to her dressing room. What a gentleman!

In her dressing room, Rebel changed into a full-on cat costume and makeup to present the Best Visual Effects award alongside James. The two had one of the most viral moments of the night when they poked fun at their film and took turns hitting the microphone like it was a ball of yarn.

Rebel revealed the Oscars parties were also a highlight. On social media, she shared a behind-the-scenes snap "joking around" with Best Actor Winner Joaquin Phoenix.

In her final post related to the Oscars, she reflected on the fun-filled night. After thanking her glam squad, Rebel gave a shoutout to her friends and let it slip about her smooch with Elton.

"...For my girl @carlyjsteel who was by my side the whole night wingwomaning - I ended up kissing Elton John! What a night!"

What a night, indeed!
