Ryan Gosling’s performance in First Man was not recognized with a nomination for best actor. First Man left out of best director and best drama.

The Catholic church not unhappy with the art collection and has donated pieces for the art show. The annual show at the museum dictates the theme and dress code for the evening.

The celebrities hit the red carpet with great creations of fashion, style, and makeup. Versace was popular fashion. Donatella Versace wore a design of her own that is sexy and gorgeous in a beautiful ornately embroidered coat and dress navy and gold boots. This was perfect for the evening. Her boots were fabulous. There were many celebrities wearing Versace at the Met Gala. This is appropriate because the fashion house being in Italy and often includes catholic religion in their fashion. The celebrities wearing Versace include:
