Before Barbie star America Ferrera graced the 2024 Oscars red carpet, her glam squad pulled out all the stops to ensure she looks her best tonight. And lucky for us, the Oscar nominee (who’s up for Best Supporting Actress) gave her Instagram followers an exclusive peek inside her get-ready-with-me routine. 

In a new video shared on her Instagram Story, Ferrera beams as she sits down in a chair wearing a bathrobe. “Let’s get ready for the Oscars!” she says to the camera, with her glam squad cheering and applauding in the background. Meanwhile, she captioned the video, “Let the Oscars glam commence!!” and tagged the Academy Awards IG page

For the Barbie star, the Oscar Sunday energy has been at an all-time high. In an earlier video shared on her IG Story, Ferrara and her husband, Ryan Piers Williams, excitedly enter the hotel room they will get ready in for the awards ceremony. “Vibes are high on the Oscars Sunday,” the Ugly Betty alum wrote on top of the clip.

As we mentioned, Ferrera scored an Oscar nomination (her first ever!) in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role as Gloria in the Barbie movie. Back in January, she sat down with Today and revealed her initial reaction to her Oscar nom. “I was home alone. I had sent my kids off to school with my husband, [Ryan Piers Williams,] and he was in the car also listening to the nominations, and I just kind of got back in bed and I laid down with my iPhone,” she told the outlet. 

Ferrera continued, “And I just thought, ‘Well, I’ll just take this news lying down.’ And when it happened I gasped and I was so silent. I had no one to confirm that what I was hearing was real so there was a moment of like, ‘What’s happening? Am I imagining this?’ And then my phone started blowing up so I knew it was real.”

We’re rooting for you, America!
