If you were looking forward to seeing Natalie Portman and her baby bump dressed in some stunning, flowing couture gown on tonight's red carpet, we're sorry to disappoint. The actress, who is nominated for her leading role in Jackie, will not be attending the Academy Awards ceremony this year—but for good reason.
"Due to my pregnancy, I am unable to attend the Independent Spirit Awards and the Academy Awards," Portman said in a statement to People. "I feel so lucky to be honored among my fellow nominees and wish them the most beautiful of weekends."
Portman is expecting her second child with husband Benjamin Millepied, and if her blossoming bump at the Screen Actors Guild Awards was any indication, she's probably due fairly soon. The actress has yet to publicly divulge her due date, but back in November—at which point her baby bump was already fully showing—she told Jimmy Fallon that she's not as pregnant as she looks.
"It's weird because I'm a small person in general, so you show a lot faster and a lot more when you're small," the 5-foot-3 star said on The Tonight Show. "Everyone thinks I'm about to pop and about to give birth any minute, and I have months to go. I went to the store the other day to buy water and the guy at the checkout counter was like, 'Almost, huh?' I was like, 'No! Not at all!'"
So, while we won't see Portman on the Oscars red carpet, there will be plenty of celebrities bringing their fashion A-game tonight—all of which you can follow here as we live update the chicest arrivals of the evening.
