They expressed gratitude to their friends and co-hosts who contribute to the foundation's mission to raise vital funds. The evening was not just a gathering of A-listers but an act of solidarity towards an AIDS-free future.

The Oscars themselves saw 'Oppenheimer' sweep several categories, contrasting with 'Barbie', which managed to clinch an award for Best Original Song by Billie Eilish and Finneas O'Connell. The event highlighted cinematic achievements just as it underscored the entertainment community's potential to drive change in global health issues.
