The Oscars is also a time for friendship

In a night sparkling with stars, one friendship shone brighter than the rest! Johnny Depp, the enigmatic pirate of the silver screen, took to Instagram with a heartwarming tribute to his "dear friend" Robert Downey Jr. after the latter snagged his first-ever Oscar statuette.

The two A-listers, who've never shared the big screen, have been running in the same elite circles, and their camaraderie is giving us major friendship goals!

Downey's Best Supporting Actor win for his role in the explosive drama 'Oppenheimer' was the talk of the town, coming on his third Oscar nomination.

His previous nods for 'Tropic Thunder' and 'Chaplin' had fans on the edge of their seats, but this year, the Academy finally gave a standing ovation to RDJ's undeniable talent.

The Oscars aren't just about the glitz and the gowns; it's the speeches that often steal the show! And RDJ didn't disappoint. With a mix of wit and warmth, he thanked his "terrible childhood" and his wife, Susan, with a hilarious vet mix-up that had the audience in stitches.
