Awards Season

We're Here to Call It: Helen Mirren Is the MVP of the 2018 Oscars (UPDATED)

The Academy Award winner slayed this year's show, starting with some red carpet shots. 

UPDATE (March 5, 2018, 12:19 P.M.): Helen returned at the end of the show to present the jet ski to Phantom Thread costume designer Mark Bridges, who had the shortest speech of the night.

The original story continues below.

ICYMI: While there were a bunch of ultra-glam actors and actresses taking home shiny statues at the 2018 Academy Awards on Sunday, March 4, it was Helen Mirren who was actually stealing the show. Because, as we all recognize by now, she is a boss. OK, so she wasn't nominated for an Academy Award this year, but, still, we couldn't keep our eyes off of her. Therefore, we're here to crown her the night's MVP. Let us explain.

You see, it all started when she was spotted on the red carpet taking a tequila shot. Yes, right there on the red carpet Dame Helen Mirren downed a little bit of alcohol because she is the walking embodiment of #goals. And, thankfully, the moment was captured on social media and will live on forever and ever.

Then, Mirren, who already has an Oscar, and has been nominated a total of four times in her career so this really isn't that big of a deal anymore, is so chill and fun that she decided she'd spend some of the night playing the part of a game show model.

She took the stage to show off the jet ski that one of the Oscar winners could take home by the end of the night if they were bold enough to keep their speech short. (Thanks, Jimmy Kimmel.) Heck, if Meghan Markle could go from Deal or No Deal model to future royal, Helen could certainly do a reverse career move, right?

Helen being her simply fab self at the 2018 Oscars on March 4, 2018.
