The notoriously private couple always do their best to keep the romance under wraps but the emotions got the better of them at Sunday night's Oscars.

As Alicia Vikander was named Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Danish Girl, both her and Fassbender were captured by the cameras looking overjoyed.

As the 27-year old stood up to head to the stage to deliver her thank you speech, she adorably kissed Fassbender with excitement and the Irish actor couldn't have looked more proud or happier to her boyfriend.

The pair met while filming their upcoming flick, The Light Between Oceans, in Australia last year and have managed to keep a low profile with their rumoured romance.

They didn't make their red carpet debut as a couple for the awards ceremony, choosing to make their entrance with their families instead. Vikander arrived on the red carpet with her parents Maria Fahl and Svante Vikander, with Fassbender arriving much later with his mother.

Speaking to People magazine, Vikander couldn't contain her excitement at being nominated

"I'm at the Oscars, it's crazy," the stunning brunette and Louis Vuitton muse said on the red carpet.

"Being here is so surreal, I have butterflies in my tummy! Being here is extraordinary."

Later the actress thanked her The Danish Girl co-star Eddie Redmayne for encouraging her to be a better actress, in her acceptance speech.

"Thank you for being the best acting partner. You raised my game."

She also tearfully thanked her parents as the music started to play her out.

"Thank you for giving me the belief that anything can happen, even though I would never have believed this," she said.

However, Fassbender didn't get a mention in the speech, despite the camera panned to his face in anticipation.

Still... the kiss was enough.
