West Side Story's Rachel Zegler "Not Invited To The Oscars", Says She'll Cheer From Her Couch In "Sweatpants And Boyfriend's Flannel"

Rachel Zegler is "not invited" to the Oscars.

The 20-year-old actress starred as Maria in the 2021 remake of West Side Story — which is up for for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture — but will not be in attendance at the upcoming ceremony because she did not receive an invitation.

When a fan asked her on Instagram what she would be wearing to the event, she responded: "I’m not invited, so sweatpants and my boyfriend’s flannel."

The Golden Globe-winning actress — who confirmed she was dating West Side Story co-star Josh Andres Rivera back in February — went on to explain that she has tried to get an invite but to no avail and insisted she is "still rooting" for the Steven Spielberg blockbuster as she hopes for a "last-minute miracle."

Writing in the comments section of an Instagram post, she said: "I have tried it all but it doesn’t seem to be happening :’) I will root for west side story from my couch and be proud of the work we so tirelessly did 3 years ago. I hope some last minute miracle occurs and I can celebrate our film in person but hey, that’s how it goes sometimes, I guess. thanks for all the shock and outrage— I’m disappointed, too. but that’s okay. so proud of our movie."(sic)

Zegler will next be seen in Shazam! Fury of the Gods and the live-action version of Disney's Snow White.

The 94th Academy Awards is set to take place on Mar 27 and will be hosted by Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall. The presenters' line-up includes Lady Gaga, Shawn Mendes, Kevin Costner, and Anthony Hopkins.
