Oscars 2022: Stars show support for Ukraine with flag colours, ribbons, pins on the red carpet

While some referred to the war in speeches, some, like Jason Momoa, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jamie Lee Curtis, Samuel L.  Jackson, Tyler Perry, among others, wore their support on their lapels and fingers in the form of ribbons and pins in the colours of the Ukrainian flag.

After a pared down event last year at the Union Station Los Angeles, Hollywood is back to its usual location, Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre, to celebrate its biggest night. And before they head inside the theatre for the awards show, stars deliver memorable moments on the red carpet, clad in creations by the world’s best designers and fashion houses.

But this year, even as the weariness of the virus felt lighter, the Russian invasion on Ukraine loomed heavy as stars showed support for Ukrainians. While some referred to the war in speeches, some, like Jason Momoa, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jamie Lee Curtis, Samuel L. Jackson, Tyler Perry, Don’t Look Up composer Nicholas Britell, among others, wore their support on their lapels and fingers in the form of ribbons and pins in the colours of the Ukrainian flag.

Jamie Lee Curtis wore a shimmering, high-neck Stella McCartney gown, and a ‘Stand for Refugees’ ribbon to signal support for Ukrainian and other refugees across the world. She also spoke about the crisis at the Dolby Theatre: “The ribbon is about the refugee crisis. It is an incredibly important moment given what’s happening in Ukraine, the displacement of human beings in the world. The exodus of human beings is a crucial story for our time right now.”
