Union Station serves as backdrop for this year’s socially distant red carpet

The 2021 Oscars arrivals were highlighted with bright colors and bold cuts as stars returned to a (shortened and socially distanced) red carpet for the first time in a year. Click through TheWrap’s gallery here to see the night’s most vibrant looks as the celebs made their way to Union Station in Los Angeles.

Colman Domingo (“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”) made a statement in hot pink.

Best original song nominee Tiara Thomas (“Judas and the Black Messiah”) wore a white suit with a plunging neckline.

Martin Desmond and Roe Travon Free, nominated for Best Live Action Short Film for “Two Distant Strangers” wore complementary black and yellow tuxes.

Flower power! Best Director nominee Emerald Fennell wore a gorgeous floral print.

Double nominee Leslie Odom Jr hopes this gold Brioni tux will bring him some luck.

“Minari” star Alan Kim sported shorts and knee-highs on the red carpet alongside producer Christina Oh. While Kim isn’t nominated tonight, “Minari” is up for six awards, including Best Picture.

Glenn Close, who is nominated for her eighth Academy Award, donned a sparkling blue Armani tunic and matching gloves.

Maria Bakalova, nominated for her role in “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm,” stunned in a white Louis Vuitton gown, culminating her stunning looks this entire — long — awards season.

Daniel Kaluuya, nominated in the Best Supporting Actor for his role in “Judas and the Black Messiah,” donned a chunky Cartier necklace matched with a black suit on the red carpet. The movie is nominated in five categories.

“Nomadland” director Chloe Zhao bundled it up for the red carpet, skipping heels for white sneakers. Fitting, perhaps, because her film is predicted to win tonight by a mile.

“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” star Viola Davis rocked a white Alexander McQueen frock with bold cutouts.

Carey Mulligan, who is up for Best Actress for her performance in “Promising Young Woman,” was dazzling in a two-piece golden Valentino gown.
