Olivia Colman made a return appearance at this year's Oscars after her Best Actress win last year for her performance in The Favourite. Along with her new blonde hair, Colman also stood out thanks to her brief, but hilarious, introductory speech.
"Thank you for having me back," Colman began. "Last year was the best night of my husband's life. He actually says that," she emphasised, before noting drily: "And I've given birth three times! So I hope you’re all having as good a time as he did. And I did.”
Twitter was quick to voice quips of approval.

Colman's husband had a truly adorable reaction to her win last year, and she gave him a sweet shout-out in her speech. "My husband, Ed. My best friend—I love you so much," she said. "For 25 years you've been my best supporter... He's gonna cry! I'm not."
Later, backstage after her win, Colman gave an interview in which she vowed to keep her Oscar statue, "in bed with me, between me and my husband. He doesn't know yet."
