Wrapped in terry cloth, the German Hans Zimmer (64) celebrates his Oscar ceremony. At the hotel bar in Amsterdam – instead of in Los Angeles. The film composer probably did not expect the award.
He tweeted: “It’s 2am in Amsterdam and my daughter Zoë woke me up to go to the hotel bar. Wow!” He was awarded for the film music for the science fiction film “Dune”.
For Bradley Cooper (47) it means at the Oscars: “Bring your mommy to work.” The 47-year-old ‘Licorice Pizz’ actor attended the 94th Academy Awards with his mother Gloria Campano. Together they walked the red carpet, laughing and beaming.

Taunting US policy
The Oscars began quite politically. Comedian Amy Schumer (40) said at the opening: “This year the Academy hired three women as moderators – because it’s cheaper than a man.” She said so as she took the stage alongside Wanda Sykes, 58, and Regina Hall, 51.
The three co-hosts also attacked US politics. The “Don’t Say Gay” law, which restricts elementary school teachers in Florida from speaking to their students about gender identity or sexual orientation. “We’re going to have a great night tonight,” Sykes told the audience.
And then, “And for you folks in Florida, we’re going to have a gay night.” Laughter follows, and Hall and Schumer agree to say the word “gay” repeatedly – to great applause. (eu)
