Jennifer Hudson (2007)
After American Idol ended probably nobody thought they would be hearing the name of “Jennifer Hudson” associated with too many Internationally Recognized awards, much less an Oscar. How wrong they were. Not even two years later she surprised millions when she won the award for her performance in Dreamgirls.
Muhammad Ali vs Rocky Balboa (1976)
Sylvester Stallone had barely opened his mouth to present an award at the 1976 Awards when Muhammad Ali snuck up behind him. They got into a mock argument which was followed by a mock fight, winner – Ali. Sorry Rocky fans.
The aisle is there for a reason (1998)
Its been over 10 years and humanity is still in the dark as to what exactly happened when Roberto Begnigni won his Oscar for Life is Beautiful. The Italian director made his way to the stage leaping over chairs and waving his hands wildly. Hope he’s doing alright.
Sense of humor…fail (2005)
Most people expect the host to make some jokes, or at least try to, so when Chris Rock poked fun at Jude Law for being in every movie of the previous year and not having anything to show for it everyone in the crowd laughed and moved on. Well, everybody minus one. When Sean Penn took the stage to present his award he came to Jude’s defense by claiming he’s one the best actors of our time. You could almost hear the vertebrae rubbing against each other in Chris Rock’s neck as he sat in the crowd shaking his head.
Will and Steve (2006)
Remember elementary school? Its basic arithmetic. 2 + 2 = 4 and Will Ferrell + Steve Carell = you shouldn’t be surprised. When Will and Steve took the stage to present the award for Best Makeup while wearing makeup we double checked our work, and it looked good.
