Rami Malek is a treasure who must be protected at ALL COSTS.

The 37-year-old won the prestigious Best Actor gong at the 91st Academy Awards last night, his first win and nomination, so his nerves are understandable.

The adorable, immensely talented actor was kissing his co-star girlfriend Lucy Boynton the entire night, and we don't blame him. It was basically Wezz. He declared his love for her in his speech, and pretty much everyone melted.

Malek and Boynton play Freddie Mercury and Mary Austin in Bohemian Rhapsody, which was the biggest winner of the night but failed to win Best Picture, and the world has fallen in love with them.

On stage, Rami professed his love for the 25-year-old English actress before falling off afterwards and had to be treated by paramedics, which will 100 percent make a great story to tell the grandkids.

He said, "Lucy Boynton, you are the heart of this film, you are beyond immensely talented, you have captured my heart. Thank you so much." AW. He also opened up about his Egyptian heritage;

Malek is apparently moving to London to be around his love, after totally falling for her. The poor lad even fell off the stage with the shock of his award, with People reporting that Malek was moved to a private area backstage.

"Paramedics appeared to rush to the actor's aide, who was photographed seated in the front row with his Oscars statuette still in hand. Malek was then moved to a private area backstage, where he received further treatment for possible injuries."

Malek was unable to pose with Mahershala Ali, Regina King and Olivia Colman, who also won big at the Academy Awards in the Dolby theatre. He was featured in a photo with them after the ceremony however.

Bohemian Rhapsody was the biggest winner of the night, taking home the awards for Best Actor, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing and Film Editing.

Spike Lee, director of BlacKkKlansman, was NOT happy when Green Book took home Best Picture, which has been controversially labelled a "white saviour" movie.

Queen featuring Adam Lambert opened up the Oscars instead of an opening monologue, as the ceremony went hostless without Kevin Hart.

NOW TV has revealed the Irish public's faves for this Sunday's Academy Awards, and some of them just might surprise you.

While many are speculating that Green Book or Bohemian Rhapsody will take the gong, Ireland's top choice for the Best Picture Award is A Star Is Born, featuring Lady Gaga and directed by and starring Bradley Cooper.

Black Panther is also a dark horse in the category, being the first superhero movie to ever be nominated for the coveted prize.

In terms of Irish talent, 44 percent of the nation's participants believe that Saoirse Ronan was robbed of a Best Actress Oscar nod (which would be her FOURTH nomination) for Mary, Queen of Scots.

The starred in the film alongside Margot Robbie as Queen Elizabeth, and many believe her amazing performance deserved the nomination. Her previous category nods include roles in Brooklyn, Lady Bird and Atonement.

20 percent of survery participants said that they will be following the results and outcome on social media, and we suspect many of us will be gaggin' to see the gorgeous couture being donned.

Timothée Chalamet is another reason to watch…Just saying…

Unsurprisingly, Ireland's choice for Oscar host is the white wine-sipping legend that is Graham Norton. The acerbic wit would be pure gas at the Hollywood event, if his hilarious Eurovision content is anything to go by.

The public voted 64 percent in his favour as host. NOW TV also found that 47 percent of Irish people will be watching the 91st Academy Awards on social media, a highlights reel or the news. 

25 percent of Irish people will wait until the next morning to get the Oscars gossip, rather than the 20 percent who plan to keep updated as the ceremony happens.

For any Oscars enthusiasts, watching the Academy Awards is easier than ever. NOW TV also calculated Ireland's favourite or most memorable Oscar moments, and they're still scandalous as ever.

The La La Land Best Picture error in 2017 topped the poll as the most memorable Oscar moment, with more than one-third of respondents recalling the horrendous moment that the film was called out as Best Film by MISTAKE, stealing Moonlight's thunder.

Ellen DeGeneres' star-studded selfie was next in line, taking 22 percent of the Irish public's vote.

In terms of red carpet fashion highlights, 26 percent of participants chose Cher's 1986 bare stomach look with a feathered headpiece as the biggest fashion fail. Bjork's 2001 swan dress with egg laying motion was also a high contender in the faux pas category.

Sacha Baron Cohen appearing as Admiral General Aladeen took 21 percent of the fashion fail vote, and Gwyneth Paltrow’s braless goth look from 2002 had 19 percent of the vote.

Kevin Hart stepped down as Academy Awards host in January after homophobic tweets were revealed and he failed to apologise this year for them, leaving the 2019 Oscars hostless. It's a shame Graham Norton wasn't asked…

Ellen DeGeneres topped the polls as the most favourable Oscar's host, taking 29 percent of the participants' favourite vote, and Whoopi Goldberg came second with 20 percent. Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin had 14 percent of the vote as a comedic duo.

31 percent of Irish people want A Star Is Born to sweep the ceremony, and hope for Gaga to win Best Actress (39 percent) and Bradley Cooper as Best Actor (32 percent). They do have outrageously great chemistry… and he should have gotten the Best Director nod too. I stand by that,

NOW TV have given us the goss, and you can watch the ceremony through their website here.

Another year, another Academy Award's series of snubs. It wouldn't be the Oscars unless some fandoms were left devastated on behalf of their favourite actor or actress, would it?

The 2019 awards are seeing some record breakers, first-time achievements and MAJOR actors left out of the nominations, much to the upset of Twitter.

So who are the biggest history makers and snubbed heartbreakers?

1. Timothée Chalamet, Beautiful Boy

Our favourite human ever (protect him at all costs) failed to garner an Oscar nod for his protrayal of a crystal meth addict son of Steve Carrell (also snubbed), and people are ChalaMAD about it. 

He was ROBBED.

We won't forget this, Academy. You've made an enemy.

2. Bradley Cooper for Best Director, A Star Is Born. Okay, but women get snubbed in this category every year, so let's not cry too hard.

We're super shook by this one, Lady Gaga must be upset on his behalf since she's been endorsing him for the entire of awards season ("There could be 99 in a room but all it takes is just one to believe in you")

Classic Guardians of the Galaxy reference, we had to laugh at this one.

3. Crazy Rich Asians for…ANY category. Any. 

Michelle Yeoh deserved recognition for her outstanding take in the all-star Asian cast, she slayed that screen. She even owns that iconic emerald ring featured in the film, if that's not commitment I don't know what is.

It's offeNSIVE god damn it.

Looks like a riot is about to happen… 

4. Emily Blunt for EITHER Mary Poppins Returns or A Quiet Place

HOW.

She's so versatile, so dedicated, so classy. We can feel her hubby John Krasinski's blood boil.

Processing this snub is a hard pill to swallow right now.

Rest in pieces.

5. A FEMALE DIRECTOR. AGAIN.

We cannot believe this…it's 2019 and still only five women have EVER been nominated, and only one woman has ever won the gong (Kathryn Bigelow).

Lynne Ramsay’s You Were Never Really Here, and Debra Granik’s Leave No Trace, despite being recognised on the film circuit by Sundance and Cannes, received no nominations.

Ramsay and BlacKkKlansman director Spike Lee, who has earned his first Academy Award nomination, are the most laureled filmmakers on the critics’ awards circuit after Alfonso Cuarón for Roma.

Other women who were ignored were Marielle Heller for Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Chloe Zhao for The Rider, Tamara Jenkins (Private Life), Karyn Kusama (Destroyer), Mimi Leder  for On the Basis of Sex and Josie Rourke for the incredible Mary Queen of Scots.

The NECK.

At least Canadian artist Domee Shi is being celebrated as the first female director to be nominated for Best Short Film, after helming Pixar's adorable Bao.
