Everything You Need To Know About What Happened At The Oscars
The biggest night in Hollywood’s calender has been and gone, with nobody daring to try and repeat last year’s chaos that was the ultimateselfie. The night still had plenty of talking points. There was plenty of winners, some gracious losers, and one Scientology fan that we should all be really suspicious of.
The red carpet was the predictable blend of the good. the bad, and the downright weird.
Will.I.Am did everyone else a favour. Being the noble gent that he is, he decided to take the worst dressed award, saving anyone else the embarrassment. Top guy.
Reese Witherspoon who was nominated for best actress…looking fab
And for the downright weird, look no further than Lady Gaga and her big red oven gloves?
Wait!! Forget everything else. Emma Stone flashed her knickers.
Neil Patrick Harris opened in controversial style
The audience looked on pretty awkwardly as the joked: “Welcome to the 87th Oscars. Tonight we honour Hollywood’s best and whitest – sorry, I mean brightest.”
And then later on he went almost-naked for a while…
Michael Keaton was getting a lot of the attention…
For his gum chewing antics.
Joan Rivers was snubbed during the memorial section. It didn’t go unnoticed.
This is just one of hundreds of angry tweets.
John Travolta was being proper weird, again.
First up his surprise kiss seemed to leave Scarlett Johansson in that awkward position of waiting for him to get the hell off of her.
Still waiting John…
There we go, that’s the spirit.
Last year he called Idina Menzel ‘Adele Dazeem.’ Not wanting to be outdone by his former self, this year he forayed into some strange kind of face grappling with Idina. She smiled on nervously, probably wondering why does she always gets lumped with the mad man.
Let her go John!
Benedict Cumberbatch sneaked a hip flask in, got caught on camera, told it to go away.
Patricia Arquette won best supporting actress for her role in Boyhood. During her speech she demanded equal pay for women in the US. Meryl Streep loved it, that throwing your arms around and punching the air kind of love.
Lady Gaga did a Sound of Music tribute and everyone went nuts, remembering what a talented singer she is. Where’s the PVC, they cried. Where’s the weird artist vomiting paint all over you? Why aren’t you hibernating in an egg? What the hell is going on here….
Eddie Redmayne won the Oscar for best actor. He had best reaction of the night…
