Having a ball with her pals, Isla looked sensational in a black, button-down frock that showed off a hint of cleavage, the actress looking immersed in the lively conversation happening around the star-studded table. 

Russell, who is of late sporting long, grey hair and a bushy salt-and-pepper beard, leaned over the table to talk to various guests, and appeared jolly indeed.  

Sacha left his Borat costumes at home, trading them in for a hipster look, including a fedora, black polo shirt and beige slacks, with the comedian stroking his chin as the scintillating conversation reached its peak.

He was nominated for his role in The Trial of the Chicago 7 and his screenplay for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

But he lost out to Best Supporting Actor winner Daniel Kaluuya for his role in Judas and the Black Messiah, while The Father was named Best Adapted Screenplay.

Sacha and his wife actress Isla Fisher, 45, were spotted leaving a screening of the  93rd Academy Awards in Sydney early after the winners were announced.

The couple didn’t appear too pleased as they made an early exit from the screening event with face masks on.

They jumped into a black chauffeured car before they were whisked home.

The couple relocated to Australia in December, and have since enrolled their three children at a school in Sydney.
