1. Jennifer takes a trip:
You’re 22, in a room full of superstars, dazed as they call our your name as the best lead actress, in front of a global audience of more than a billion. Okay, breathe, gather yourself, walk as gracefully as you can, made not so easy by your billowing Dior Haute Couture gown. And then, splat! Face plant on the Dolby Theatre stairs, Hollywood road-kill, if you will. As embarrassing as it was, Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence laughed off the moment, rewarded with a standing ovation by the A-list crowd: “You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I just fell, but thank you.”
2. Shirley, Barbra, Adele, oh my:
How to separate the performances by three of the greatest divas of our time? All the pre-show buzz had been about the return of Adele, performing her now Oscar-winning original song, Skyfall. She didn’t disappoint, only to be matched for raw emotion by Barbra Streisand’s In Memoriam tribute to Marvin Haimlisch (singing The Way We Were); and pure lung capacity by Dame Shirley Bassey belting out Goldfinger. No hint of a pre-recorded backing track, just scintillating talent unleashed on an audience who could only sit slack-jawed and applaud.
3. Sock it to ‘em:
Oscars host Seth MacFarlane pre-empted the bagging he will inevitably get for steering this ship, but there were a few bright spots in an otherwise disjointed night. Like the re-telling of Denzel Washington’s Flight movie using sock puppets (inspired!) or the zinger about Django Unchained’s violence (“or as Chris Brown and Rihanna call it, a date movie”). Even when he looked like bombing, Seth was quick to turn on the uptight crowd. Referencing the overuse of the “N” word in Django, he got boos for saying the screenplay was “loosely based on Mel Gibson’s voicemails,” only to slap the fickle crowd with: “oh really? So you’re on his side?”
