Actors and actresses came to the 89th Academy Awards to collect gold statuettes, but also took the opportunity to represent organizations and causes dear to them. 

The stars walked the red carpet with everything from ribbons to stuffed animals in tow. 

Jackie Chan showed up on the red carpet with two stuffed panda animals, or what he called his “two baby boys.”

“I am the ambassador of pandas,” he explained to Ryan Seacrest. “After earthquakes, they get hurt and I raise them.”
