Kirsten Dunst wasn’t upset that Amy Schumer thought she was a “seat filler” during the Oscars because she was “in” the whole gag.

Dunst was nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, From Her Chair Among the Audience During the Routine when Amy thought she was a seat filler and wanted to talk to her husband and fellow nominee, Jesse Plemons.

Dunst was nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for playing Rose Gordon and Plemons won Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his role as George Burbank.

Dunst stepped out in Christian Lacroix in a strapless red tulle dress for her Oscar red carpet look. She wore Fred Leighton’s sparkling diamond earrings with her blonde pulled-back locks for the occasion.

The Plemons came out with a classic black on black tuxedo suit including a black coat, black shirt, black tie, black pants, and black shoes.

The Power of the Dog is adapted from Thomas Savage’s 1967 novel of the same name about a pair of ranching brothers in 1925 (Benedict Cumberbatch and Plemons).

Their lives are turned upside down when George Plemons suddenly marries Dunst Rose, and takes her son.
