The Oscars are notorious for running past their three-hour time slot, but Julia Butters has come prepared for an extended ceremony.
The 10-year-old breakout of Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood” arrived at the Oscars red carpet sporting a pink ensemble and a high bun, bursting with excitement for her first time representing a film at the Academy Awards. “My mind is blown! I don’t know what’s happening! It’s raining!” she told Variety.
When asked what was inside her matching pink bag, Butters broke into a smile before producing a turkey sandwich wrapped in a plastic Ziploc.

Though the tour is over, Butters still expressed excitement for the film’s final night on the awards circuit. “I’m excited to see whoever comes,” Butters said. “Lady Gaga is here. God bless America.”
