There were big winners all night at the 89th Annual Academy Awards but Gary from Chicago may have had the best night of them all.
Host Jimmy Kimmel informed the audience that a group of unsuspecting tourists was on their way to into the Dolby Theatre to crash the Oscars.
The tourists were told they were on their way to see a special exhibit of Oscar dresses and gowns.
“They will see dresses and gowns but they will be on people. They don’t know it but the moment they open the door, they’re going to be on live TV and we’re gonna surprise them,” Kimmel told the audience.
When the tourists arrived, one man stole the show in particular.
Sporting a long pair of basketball shorts, an unfazed Gary Allen Cole from Chicago wasted no time, immediately pulling out his phone to film the surprise.
This was the beginning of an eventful moment for Gary and his fiance, Vicky Vines.
Gary kissed the hands of several actresses he met. His fiance told Denzel Washington that he was her favorite actor to his face.
The couple was then “married” by Denzel.
Gary touched Mahershala Ali’s Oscar.
Gary was even invited to a Chicago Bulls game by his hometown team.
His fiance had heartthrob Ryan Gosling whisper in her ear.
Best of luck to Gary and Vicky on the marriage, they’re off to a great start.
