Oscars 2020: Julia Butters brings a sandwich to 92 academy awards

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actor Julia Butters secretly packed a sandwich in her handbag to take on her first ever Oscars red carpet.

The 10-year-old from California told a reporter that she had packed a turkey sandwich in her handbag so she could snack during the awards.

She said: “I don’t like some of the food here”.

Last week it was revealed the Oscars, which is taking place at the Dolby theatre in Los Angeles, would be going vegan.

This is following plant-based meals being served at both the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards: a move that was praised by many attendees.

A statement said: “For the past decade, the Academy has been committed to reducing its carbon footprint. For the past seven years, the Oscars show has had a zero-carbon imprint.

“We continue to expand our sustainability plan with the ultimate goal of becoming carbon neutral.”

While there is no food served at the Oscars itself, the Academy confirmed that all food served in the lobby prior to the ceremony will be entirely plant-based.

Butters recently revealed that director Quentin Tarantino cast her in his latest film after seeing her on television in American Housewife.

She said: “He looked up and saw me and said, 'Maybe she can try this.' I'm so happy that the TV was on at that time and that moment because if it hadn't, I wouldn't be in the movie.”
