The couple walked the red carpet at the Oscars after being spotted in January at Sundance, where Wang's 'The Farewell' landed a deal with A24, the company behind Jenkins' Oscar-winning film 'Moonlight.'

Maybe you missed it, but between Lady Gaga's $30 million necklace and Jennifer Lopez's mirrored gown, a new Hollywood power couple made their debut on the Oscar red carpet.

If Beale Street Could Talk director Barry Jenkins, 39, and indie filmmaker Lulu Wang, 36, arrived arm-in-arm for their first public appearance as a couple. Or at least their first appearance in black tie: The two were also spotted at Sundance in January, where Wang's The Farewell landed a deal with A24 (which happens to be the company behind Jenkins' Oscar-winning Moonlight). While both declined to comment on the relationship, THR has learned that they have been dating for about a year.
