The 31-year-old actor - whose film 'Call Me By Your Name' was nominated for Best Picture - walked the red carpet at Los Angeles' Dolby theatre with wife Elizabeth Chambers on Sunday (04.03.18), just a day after he was forced to miss the Film Independent Spirit Awards because he was bedridden with an illness.

Hours before the Academy Awards, Armie shared a photo on Instagram of himself hooked up the IV and wrote: "Oscar prep has taken a strange turn.... thank you @elizabethchambers for taking such good care of me. Thank you @elizabethchambers for taking such good care of me (sic)".

The night before, Armie revealed the reason why he was missing from the other awards ceremony but was doing his best to get better.

On another Instagram post, he wrote: "I may be too sick to be at the Indie Spirit Awards, but thanks to @elizabethchambers I am toasting you guys with pedialyte and chicken soup! Go get em guys! (sic)"

Prior to falling ill, Armie had been documenting his Oscars preparations on Instagram during the week.

This included getting a facial and his hair cut, but most bizarrely, he also had his chest fascia scraped.

He shared a video of a massage therapist rubbing his chest with an orange tool in a practise that is meant to ease tension and improve circulation.

He captioned the short clip: "Pain is beauty...(sic)"

The bare-chested treatment was a hit with 'Watch What Happens Live' host Andy Cohen.

The presenter quipped in the comments on the Instagram post: "This legit is turning me on."
