Jennifer Lawrence eats it but wins anyway, Daniel Day-Lewis is a class act and more. Here's the best and worst from last night's Oscar Awards.
Jennifer Lawrence: Just the best. From ridiculous red carpet antics (threatening Emma Stone in the E! “mani-cam,” demanding to know where the food was) to tripping over her dress on the way to picking up a Best Actress oscar, J-Law secured a place in our hearts this night.
He did play Two Face after all.
Kristen Chenoweth: ABC’s red carpet hostess was massively obnoxious for the entirety of the pre-show. If you’re doing the pre-show, your job is to get out of the way and let the stars do their business. Chenoweth did the exact opposite, making an ass of herself and trying to grab the spotlight. I felt bad for her.
Well, she would know.
Michelle Obama: Girl, I love you (and the bangs look great), but you have to know that presenting the Best Picture Oscar is just going to give right-wingers a bunch of things to yell at your husband about. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re already doing it.
Yep, they are.
Daniel Day-Lewis: Okay, check this: dude now has an Oscars record as the only actor to win the Best Actor In A Leading Role three damn times. Even if I wasn’t super crazy about Lincoln this is still amazing. Big ups.
Ugh. The Family Guy creator will go down as one of the worst Oscar hosts in history. MacFarlane laid down so many bad forced-edgy jokes pointed at easy targets that, by the show-ending musical number about the Oscar losers, his voice had turned into a dull, colorless drone. I never thought anybody would make me nostalgic for Billy Crystal, but here were are. Big ups to Robert Downey Jr. for not even clapping for him.
