Oscars 2017: Behind the Scenes with Justin Timberlake, Lin-Manuel Miranda and More

Who is getting all glammed up and who is doing their laundry the hours before the Oscars?

The Academy Awards isn’t all glitz and glam, gold statues and diamond baubles. OK, it is, but it’s also a whole lot of work.

Primping hair and perfecting makeup, getting taped into that plunging neckline to prevent embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions, practicing the long walk in those god-awful high heels, nailing the choreography and, yes, even doing the laundry are all part of a typical Oscar morning in Hollywood.

Stars shared how their time was spent as the hours closed in on the curtain raising for the 89th Academy Awards. From Justin Timberlake to Lin-Manuel Miranda to Ellen DeGeneres, here’s a tiny look at the goings-on behind-the-scenes leading up to the Oscars.

Up first, Amy Adams, who showed up for rehearsal wearing jeans… and some serious shoes. Better to be safe than sorry and get in a practice run in those babies.
