Ariana DeBose and Leslie Odom Jr. Had the Cutest Hamilton Reunion at the Oscars

Leslie Odom Jr. and Ariana DeBose's mini Hamilton reunion at the Oscars just made my night. While doing interviews with nominees during the preshow on Sunday night, Ariana shared a sweet moment with her former Broadway costar when she spoke with Leslie about his role in One Night in Miami. As soon as he stepped on the red carpet, she brilliantly referenced lyrics from the musical, saying, "Look at where you are, look at where you started," which got a chuckle from Leslie. "That's a good one," he said about the Hamilton nod. "Sometimes I don't like them. That one I liked." While Leslie is well-known for originating the role of Aaron Burr in Hamilton, Ariana played the role of the Bullet. Like Ariana said, the two have certainly come along way since then. Not only is Leslie an Oscar-nominated actor, but Ariana is set to take on the iconic role of Anita in the West Side Story remake. See their cute exchange above.

Ariana DeBose, Lil’ Rel Howery To Host 93rd Academy Awards Pre-Show

Award shows may be losing viewers across the board, but Steven Soderbergh and company are putting their all into making a great show. Set to take place in Los Angeles on April 25, the award show will include stars like Brad Pitt and Halle Berry as well as appearances from Don Cheadle and Zendaya. Adding to night’s festivities, the pre-awards show, Oscars: Into The Spotlight, is just as elaborate as the main ceremony. The pre-awards show will feature performances from H.E.R, Leslie Odom Jr. and Celeste. Leading the way, Lil’ Rel Howery and Ariana DeBose will host the event. This is a major upgrade for Lil’ Rel Howery, who said he wasn’t even invited to the event back in 2018 when Get Out was nominated for “Best Picture.”
