If you watch television, listen to the radio, own a computer, or are else-wise engaged in some form of human-interactive activity, you are probably aware that the Oscars are being held in Los Angeles this Sunday. Chances are you haven’t seen all (or any) of the movies, but will still tune in to the 85th Annual Academy Awards in hopes of a “WTF’ moment.
With Seth MacFarlane hosting this year, the Academy is definitely taking some chances. Come Monday morning, hopefully we’ll have some moments to remember – moments like these:
Chris Rock - 2012
At the 2012 Oscars, Chris Rock had the line of the night when presenting the award for Best Animated Feature, when he said of the genre: “If you’re a white man you can play an Arabian prince. And if you’re a black man you can play a donkey or a zebra!” Rock then went on to say how “easy” vocal acting is, and how it’s basically repeating words for a million dollars, much to the delight of the audience.
Angelina Jolie - 2000
When Angelina locked lips with brother James at the 2000 Oscars, the world cringed and momentarily lost ALL OF THE BONERS. But this kiss also appears to be more passionate than the sum of all my marriages, so there’s that, I guess. Maybe they were just really glad that world didn’t end with Y2K. That’s really all the brainpower I can devote to this nightmare material.
Debby Boone - 1979
When Debby Boone took to the Oscar stage in 1979 to sing her Oscar-nominated song “You Light Up My Life,” she felt it would be best performed if available for all people to enjoy – including the deaf. Great plan of inclusion, Debby! Kudos! So, she sang along with a children’s deaf choir who signed in ASL for deaf viewers.
Except that this is Hollywood, PLUS the music industry, so of course the children’s deaf choir wasn’t deaf at all and didn’t even know ASL, so basically what ended up happening was a room full of children wildly gesturing random hand signals to a Debby Boone record. CHAOS FTW!
Streaker - 1974
I so miss 70′s style bush.
