The Met Gala is the biggest gathering of celebrities and celebrities-turned-celebrities in Hollywood.
It’s the event that has brought together some of the most famous stars in the world, from the Kardashians to The Real Housewives of New Jersey to Justin Bieber.
It has been the source of many controversies, including accusations of racial insensitivity, a lawsuit filed by one of its hosts, the comedian Billy Crystal, who claimed he was fired from his show for making jokes about sexual assault, and the death of the actress who starred in the 1990s movie “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”
(The singer who plays Pepper in the movie is Amber Heard.)
The event was canceled in 2016.
But the stars, stars, and stars-turned stars are back for 2017.
Here are the five biggest awards of the year: 1.
Audience Award: Actor, actress, and singer-songwriter Lily Allen, who is the only person in the history of the Met Galas to have both received an Audience Awards and been nominated for both.
