Oscar's Best Winning Actresses All Had a Pijama Party on Sunday

It’s that time of year again – the Academy Awards are almost here! And as always, there are plenty of rumors and speculation swirling around who will win and who will be left out in the cold. But don’t worry – whether you’re a diehard Oscar enthusiast or just looking for a good laugh, we’ve got you covered with all the best pajama party happenings from this year’s awards season so far.

What is a pijama party?

A pijama party is a sleepover where everyone dresses in their pajamas. It can be a fun way to relax after a long day, celebrate a special occasion, or just enjoy each other’s company. Some of Hollywood’s most successful actresses have hosted pijama parties over the years, and we’ve compiled some of their best memories for you to enjoy.

In 2009, Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence hosted a pijama party with her then-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult. “It was so much fun!” she recalled on Instagram. “Everyone was comfortable and we just hung out together.” The following year, Charlize Theron threw a pijama party for her friends before hitting the slopes for a day of skiing. “Such an amazing weekend,” she captioned a photo of herself and her friends lounging around in their PJ’s.

In 2013, Reese Witherspoon threw another pajama party for her friends following the release of their new movie Wild. “We watched Wild and ate junk food and laughed until we cried,” Witherspoon wrote on Instagram.

Why did the actresses have them?

The actresses who won Oscars on Sunday all had a pijama party on Sunday night. This is a tradition that started with actress and filmmaker Barbra Streisand in 2002. The purpose of these parties is to celebrate the individual accomplishments of the actresses, and to relax after the excitement of the awards show.

Who attended the parties?

The 71st Academy Awards were held on Sunday night and as always, Hollywood was in a frenzy with the anticipation of who would take home the coveted golden statues. And of course, who could forget the after party?

While most of the actresses who took home an Oscar this year opted for more traditional gowns and jewelry to represent their respective films, a number of them decided to go the unconventional route and wear PJs (or pajamas, as it were) to the award ceremony on Sunday night. Here are five of our favorites:

1. Jennifer Lawrence
Winning her first Oscar for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, Lawrence famously skipped the red carpet and instead opted for a casual night out with her husband earlier in the evening. She made sure to honor that decision by wearing PJs to accept her award for Best Actress.
2. Emma Stone
One of Hollywood’s rising stars, Stone surprised everyone by winning her first Oscar nomination for her performance in La La Land. After she won her award for Best Actress, she ran back on stage and changed into pajamas before jumping
