Kristen Stewart went red carpet official with her fiancée Dylan Meyer at the Oscars 2022.

Stewart, who was nominated in the Best Actress category for her role as Princess Diana in Spencer, shared a kiss with Meyer before posing for the press – and Twitter immediately fell to pieces.

A clip shared by Variety racked up thousands of likes on Twitter, with queer people everywhere sharing their joy at seeing the couple’s heartfelt moment.

Pretty much nobody was OK after seeing the kiss, and honestly, how could you be?

Many were quick to point out that the moment might seem small, but for queer audiences, it feels huge to see LGBT+ people being themselves without any hint of shame.

That wasn’t the only queer moment of the night.

Niecy Nash also turned up to the Oscars and shared a kiss with her wife Jessica Betts on the red carpet.

Meanwhile, Oscars host Wanda Sykes and Best Actress winner Jessica Chastain spoke out against Florida’s Don’t Say Gay bill, while Ariana DeBose won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress – she is the first openly queer woman of colour to win an award at the Oscars.

Stewart lost out on the Best Actress Oscar to Chastain, who took home the award for The Eyes of Tammy Faye. The film sees her playing the titular televangelist and gay icon.

Elsewhere, CODA – the Apple TV+ film about deaf parents and their hearing daughter – took home the Best Picture Oscar.

The entire ceremony was overshadowed by Will Smith getting up on stage and punching Chris Rock in the face after the comedian made a joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith’s cropped hair.

Pinkett-Smith, who has been married to Will Smith since 1997, has spoken openly about her alopecia, revealing that the hair-loss condition prompted her to shave her head.

Shortly after Smith punched Rock in the face, he got up on stage to accept the Oscar for Best Actor for his acclaimed performance in King Richard, in which he plays the father of Venus and Serena Williams, and apologised.
