The 2019 Governors Awards mark the launch of award season and so many of this year’s awards contenders stepped out to celebrate the recipients of the Honorary Oscars on Sunday night (October 27) at The Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center.
In the very first moments, Jamie Foxx opened the proceedings with a little riff on a few superstars in the crowd including Tom Hanks, Leonardo DiCaprio, Quentin Tarantino and Eddie Murphy.
Foxx summoned cheers for his Django Unchained friends,“Leonardo DiCaprio out there in the building! Ladies and gentlemen, let it go!” Foxx wailed. Leonardo stood and gave a wave to the room. “Sitting next to Leonardo DiCaprio is the chief director Quentin Tarantino! Give it to him!”Foxx continued.
