Have you ever dreamed of attending the Oscars right alongside the Hollywood elite—or, better yet, were you one of those people who practiced giving an Academy Awards acceptance speech in the bathroom mirror while holding a hairbrush as an Oscar stand-in? (We're not speaking from experience or anything.) If you can relate, prepare to have some major Oscars envy: In one the greatest moments of this year's show, Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel escorted a group of unsuspecting tourists into the front row of the Dolby Theater, and, basically, they reacted the way any of us would if we were faced with a room full of our favorite celebrities: They took a ton of selfies. And even got married by Denzel Washington.
Here's what went down: Kimmel announced in one of the interlude moments between awards that a group of vacationers on a Hollywood tour bus were arriving at the building, fully unaware that they were about to walk into the world's most legendary awards show and be cheered by a theater full of famous faces. Though the group of "regular people," selfie sticks and cell phones in hand, was on screen for only a few moments, a lot went down as they mingled with some of the actors and actresses.
One man, now internationally known as Gary from Chicago, and his fiancée, Vicki, were among the lucky visitors, and they in particular made the most of the experience. Gary greeted Nicole Kidman with a kiss on the hand.
His bride-to-be proved that she is all of us after receiving a coveted kiss on the cheek from Ryan Gosling.
And when Vicki shouted out Denzel Washington as her favorite actor and Kimmel asked if the actor would be willing to be the best man at their upcoming wedding, the best-actor nominee did them one better by standing up to "marry" them right there in the middle of the Oscars. "I now pronounce you husband and wife. Kiss the bride," Washington said, straight into their cell-phone video, in an abridged ceremony that's about as official as they come. Another couple of newlyweds on the tour later said, unfortunately, Washington wasn't available to officiate their nuptials. Same.
Gary got to take a selfie with best-supporting-actor winner Mahershala Ali and an actual Oscar.
And finally, Vicki was gifted a pair of Jennifer Aniston's sunglasses that she'll no doubt wear every day for the rest of her life.
We're calling it now: Best vacation ever.
