It's Monday morning, and the Internet is still trying to figure out how Blac Chyna walked the red carpet at the 2020 Oscar Awards on Sunday night.

Blac Chyna showed up early and was among the first to walk the red carpet outside the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 9.

Her presence stunned the Internet, as she wasn't a presenter nor a nominee.

The mom-of-two wore a black velvet Dona Matoshi gown with plunging neckline and a bare-all thigh-high slit. The gown was embellished with blue gems and fringe at the shoulders. The 31-year-old wore her short black hair in finger waves.

The Oscar Awards is usually reserved for the elite of the movie industry. There's a reason why only nominees, presenters and their plus ones are invited to partake of the A-list festivities.

The main reason is the spectacular costs involved in putting together Hollywood's biggest night of the year. The gift bags alone are said to be worth a quarter of a million dollars!

There are other parties for lessers to attend if they don't get an invite to the Oscars. The Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar viewing party was well-attended by those who weren't invited to the big show. Also, the star-studded Vanity Fair Oscars party was packed.

So how did former reality TV personality Blac Chyna, a C-lister at best, wrangle an invite?

My sources tell me Blac Chyna was not invited. She simply showed up and they let her walk the red carpet!

So there you have it: Chyna crashed the Oscars red carpet hours before the event started. How brazen!

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences declined to nominate Taylor's song "Beautiful Ghosts", which she co-wrote with Oscar-winner Andrew Lloyd Webber. Adding insult to injury, Beyonce's lackluster song "Spirit" from the Lion King soundtrack was nominated for an Oscar, as was Pharrell Williams' track "Never Too Late".

Jennifer Hudson Heads To The 2016 Met Gala

BEST DRESSED

Jennifer Hudson slayed at the 2016 Met Gala in a white and silk H&M toffee colored gown featuring a long, feathery train. Jen revealed why she wore the H&M gown for her first appearance at the Ball since 2011.

“To me, H&M is a bridge between the everyday girl and the Hollywood girl,” she told People Style. “It represents every girl and every woman, and I feel like we all connect to it. So I feel like I’m representing every girl. I really do.”

“It’s a bit nerve-wracking,” she said of the massive red carpeted stairs. “The stairs they are huge. I swear the bannisters are blocks apart from each other! But I told H&M, ‘Don’t you worry, because I am going to display this dress.’ I’m determined to. I get a little nervous when I think about being in the middle of everything. And this is a dress that you will notice in the middle of everything. So I must be focused and ready.”
