Paul Giamatti Keeps Committing To The Bit With This Subtle Oscars Accessory

At Sunday night’s Oscars, Paul Giamatti double-doubled down on a meme that’s been following him all award season.

“The Holdovers” star, who was nominated for lead actor, posed on the red carpet with his longtime girlfriend, Clara Wong, in a sharp tuxedo and black bow tie. But many fans didn’t notice the fast-food homage hidden under his sleeves.

Stylist Michael Fisher revealed in an Instagram post that Giamatti was sporting In-N-Out cuff links — a nod to the West Coast burger chain where he dined in full formalwear following the Golden Globes in January. As seen in Fisher’s post, Giamatti also wore a pocket square embroidered with the initials of his “Holdovers” character and the quote “See Ya!”

Fisher said the cuff links were custom-made by Cufflinks Depot — “Paul LOVES the restaurant and always makes a stop when in LA,” he noted in an email — and the pocket square is by Tampa Monogram Embroidery.

Giamatti has made quite a meal of his viral In-N-Out appearance. After being named best actor at the Critics Choice Awards in January, he quipped, “I didn’t think my week could get any better than going viral for eating a cheeseburger.”

Though Giamatti didn’t take home the lead actor Oscar on Sunday night — that honor went to Cillian Murphy for “Oppenheimer” —  cameras caught his emotional response to co-star Da’Vine Joy Randolph’s win for supporting actress.
