The Academy Awards always give us plenty to obsess over. From the star-studded red carpet to the stunning ceremony itself, the Oscars never fail to deliver plenty of jaw-dropping moments—especially when it comes to adorable couple appearances!
After all, in addition to celebrating the best in film, the annual awards ceremony serves as Hollywood’s biggest date night. From Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker to Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, here are the sweetest couple moments you might have missed from the 2022 Oscars.
Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst
The power of this couple! Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons were among the most anticipated pairs on the Oscars red carpet since both were nominated for their shared film, The Power of the Dog.
The longtime couple, who are parents to two children together, were all smiles as they made their way down the carpet. And no matter the outcome tonight, Dunst told Entertainment Tonight that the duo is ready to celebrate.
"We don’t have kids right now," she shared. "So as late as I can stay up, I will stay up."
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker never fail to turn heads, and the couple's first Oscars red carpet appearance was no exception! The pair stepped out in their best punk-glamour digs for the big night, wearing matching all-black ensembles that stayed true to their rockstar roots. While many couples share a sweet kiss on the carpet, the recently engaged pair took it one step farther with some steamy PDA. After all, would we expect anything else from Kravis?
Jessica Betts and Niecy Nash
Not only were Jessica Betts and Niecy Nash one of the cutest duos on the red carpet, they were also one of the most stylish! Singer-songwriter Betts looked elegant in a white suit while Nash stunned in a hot pink gown, which she perfectly accessorized which a clutch that read "Wifey for Lifey." Despite their glamorous looks, don't be surprised if the couple is absent by the end of the ceremony—the Never Have I Ever actress told Entertainment Tonight that the pair might "dip out somewhere" during the show.
"It's date night," she added. "That’s why I got this high slit because you never know...Look at all these curtains and stuff."
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis
Talk about couple goals! Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis looked positively smitten on the Oscars carpet, pausing to gaze into each other's eyes and reminding us why they're one of Hollywood's golden couples. Even though the duo rarely steps out together for award shows, they looked like seasoned pros as they strolled down the carpet side by side.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have been shutting down red carpets since the '90s, so it's no surprise that they turned up at the Oscars looking like Hollywood royalty. Will looked dapper in a black suit while Jada was a vision in a green ruched gown complete with a ruffled train. One way to ensure you make it down the carpet with an extravagantly long train? By having your S.O. accompany you down, of course.
Jamie Dornan and Amelia Warner
The only thing that could make an adorable couple like Jamie Dornan and Amelia Warner any cuter? The addition of Andrew Garfield! The tick, tick...BOOM! star photobombed the pair on the red carpet, making their already sweet Oscars snaps even more memorable.
Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman
Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman continued their reign as Hollywood's It Couple at the 2022 Oscars. The A-list duo walked the carpet together, with Urban even stopping for a moment to take in his wife's powder blue gown and Old Hollywood-inspired glam.
Kristen Stewart and Dylan Meyer
Kristen Stewart and Dylan Meyer proved there's no better place to make your red carpet debut than at the Oscars! The newly engaged couple held hands as they walked the carpet in coordinating jackets paired with white button-down shirts. Stewart is certainly going to need a hand to squeeze during the ceremony—she's nominated in the Best Actress category for her performance as Princess Diana in Spencer!
Wanda Sykes and Alex Sykes
While many Oscar attendees can relax after they make it off the red carpet, Wanda Sykes's evening is just getting started! As one of the ceremony's co-hosts, the comedian has one of the most important (and nerve-wracking) jobs of the night. Luckily, she has a strong support system in the form of her longtime wife, Alex Sykes, who walked the red carpet with her. And while Sykes told PEOPLE that she waited until her hosting gig was official to share the news with her wife, her partner didn't have quite the reaction she expected at first. Her immediate response? "'What am I going to wear?'"
