- Rami Malek rocked a bow tie during the 91st Academy Awards.
- But his tie kept going askew during the evening.
- Despite many stopping to fix it, including Lady Gaga, fans couldn’t help but notice it still kept going crooked.
Rami Malek and Lady Gaga both won big at the 91st Academy Awards on Sunday night. Malek won the best actor Oscar for his performance in “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Lady Gaga won for best original song for “Shallow” from “A Star is Born.” However, it was another moment that had viewers buzzing about the two online.
Malek wore a suit with a bow tie during the ceremony, and it kept going askew. So when Gaga and Malek met up inside, they shared a sweet moment where she adjusted his bow tie.
Fans loved the gesture, but many pointed out that Gaga wasn’t the only one who tried to fix the tie. Photos popped up throughout the night of many people, including Malek himself, trying to get his bow tie straight to no avail.
Though everyone seemed to try valiantly, fans pointed out that Malek’s tie still appeared to have a mind of its own during his acceptance speech for best actor.
The moment quickly became a meme as fans couldn’t help but relate to the struggle.
He talked about his parents in his speech. The bit about his dad had me in floods of emotions but the most adorable part of Rami Malek's #Oscars speech was the tilted bow tie.
