One of the few unquestioned highlights of this year’s Academy Awards was the live performance of Best Original Song nominee “Everything is Awesome” from The LEGO Movie. Tegan and Sara and the Lonely Island performed, Oprah got her very own LEGO Oscar, and Will Arnett moaned about darkness and no parents while wearing Val Kilmer’s Batsuit from Batman Forever. It was a great moment, but one that was totally out of touch with the spirit of the evening. According to almost every pundit and critic, everything was decidedly not awesome about the 87th Oscars.
I’ll be glued to the Academy Awards this Sunday night not only cause I’m a movie-holic, but I’ll also be anxiously waiting to hear the winner of Best Original Song.
Like everybody else either at or watching the Academy Awards, Jim Rash couldn’t help but notice that Angelina Jolie was spending an awful lot of time flaunting her right leg through a slip in her gown.
The 2012 Oscars was Emma Stone’s first time presenting an award and she was super excited. (We’re letting you know just in case you didn’t already get that from her bit.) You know who wasn’t revved up at all, though? Her co-presenter Ben Stiller.
The 2012 Oscars managed to include the expected and shocks all at the same time. Odds on favorite, ‘The Artist’, won five awards including Best Picture, Best Actor for Jean Dujardin and Best Director for Michel Hazanivicius. But ‘Hugo’ gave it a run for its money, also bringing home five awards (though none in the major categories).
Not only did Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog hit the 2012 Oscars red carpet in style, but they also claimed a bit of the spotlight during the show when they presented Cirque du Soleil’s thrilling performance.
