Lucas Hedges walked the red carpet at the 2017 Academy Awards, as the actor is nominated for Best Supporting Actor for playing Patrick Chandler in Manchester By the Sea. This is the 20-year-old actor's first Academy Award nomination. Wearing a classic tux, the newbie rocked a close cropped buzz cut — a departure from his character's look in director Kenneth Lonergan's celebrated film.

Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the 89th Annual Academy Awards ceremony takes place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday, February 26, broadcast live on ABC beginning at 8:30 PM EST. The 2017 Academy Award nominees were announced on January 24.
