The 88th Academy awards were held in the United States on Sunday night (Monday morning for viewers in India), and the event witnessed the who's-who of Hollywood arrive at the Dolby Theatre to cheer on the winners.

Also present at the venue was 17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer, who was seen clicking photographs and having a good time with the other celebrities. The 34-year-old, who is presently recuperating from a knee surgery, even had a tequila shot before the start of the event, and later congratulated Leonardo Di Caprio, who won his maiden Oscar in his 6th attempt.

The Swiss ace gulped the shot and said, “I’ll get back to number with shots like that,” before adding, “That was a strong one.”

Federer cut a rather dashing figure in his red carpet entrance.

Next stop for Roger Federer: Hollywood?

Federer wasn't the only tennis star seen hobnobbing with Hollywood celebrities on the night though. Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams made appearances too!
