Oscars 2013 Best & Worst Moments
The 85th Academy Awards ceremony blew through Hollywood last night like a gust of dry winter wind, and brought with it its usual highs and lows, pretentious pageantry, long speeches -- and this time even a good old fashioned face plant on the way up to the podium to keep things interesting!
Hosted by the one and only Seth McFarlane of Family Guy, American Dad and Ted fame, this year's broadcast seemed to have a certain panache that recent years of the show have not had (read: Billy Crystal's snooze fest at last year's broadcast). This year, whether you managed to stay awake past the 'I Saw Your Boobs' song or not, we've got you covered! Take a look-see at Oscar's 5 Best & Worst moments this year.
5 Best Oscar Moments:
5. Seth McFarland Sings about Hollywood's Boobies
Quite possibly the highlight of his job as host, America's favorite animation genius put together a funny bit to pop off the show with a bang by singing a song called, "We saw Your Boobs." And yes folks, it's exactly what it sounds like: McFarland calling out today's most popular starlettes, including the likes of Naomi Watts and Angelina Jolie, for showing their bodacious racks on film. A pan through the crowd to many of the actresses he called out for flashing their ta-ta's resulted in a good few of them giving McFarland the stink eye for going there, but another look at the bit makes us wonder if it wasn't rehearsed and staged to appear more scandalous, no? Check the clip and let us know if you agree!
4. Daniel Day-Lewis Wins Best Actor
In this year's Oscar race for the Best Actor award, we believe that screen legend Daniel Day-Lewis did a phenomenal job portraying America's 16th president and his fight for racial equality, and luckily for us all, the Academy agreed. Bravo to Day-Lewis for winning the Best Actor award at this year's ceremony -- his performance as Lincoln killed it and no one else nominated this year deserved it more. Nope!
3. Michelle Obama Presents the Best Picture Award
Hooray to Argo for winning Best Picture! Again, another win that we here at the Weekly support whole heartedly. And making it an even sweeter victory still was having First Lady Michelle Obama present the award. This was a huge win for the film and especially for Ben Affleck, whose career seems single-handedly resurrected by his work on this project. It just goes to show though, that once you add George Clooney to the mix, the Academy's collective panties start to drop and clear the way for Oscar gold! And speaking of Clooney, is it just us, or does that beard he was rocking last night make him look a helluva lot like "The Most Interesting Man in the World"?!
