5 Most Awkward Oscar Moments Of All Time
The Academy Awards, more popularly referred to as the Oscars, are awarded for artistic and technical merit in the film industry.
As with any social gathering, the Oscars are not short of awkward moments. Believe it or not, celebrities might seem picture perfect but they are humans too and get embarrassed.
Here are some of the most awkward Oscar moments ever.
The year 2013 was Jeniffer Lawrence’s year as she enjoyed major success. She won the best actress Oscar at the 85th Academy Awards in LA, for her role in Silver Linings Playbook.
Rocking a Christian Dior Couture dress to the podium to receive her Oscar, the beauty tripped over the fluff while going up the stairs. She stumbled over the hem.
The trip was subtle and didn’t break any bones but was totally cringe-worthy. The audience, however, gave her a hearty standing ovation.
Speaking later about the awkward moment, she said, “What went through my mind? A bad word. That starts with F.”
This wasn’t the only time the A-lister stumbled over as it happened yet again on the Red carpet in 2014.
Adorned in a red Dior gown, the actress tripped on a red cone barely seconds after stepping on the red carpet.
Ellen Degeneres did not let her forget about her stumbling as she brought it up on the Oscar stage a year later.
Brad-jelina And Jenifer Aniston
The awkward Oscars were just around the time rumors were flying around about Brad Pitt cheating on his then-wife Jenifer Aniston with Anjelina Jolie.
Brad and Anjelina starred together in the hit movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith when they met. Jenifer and Brad split in 2005 and Brad immediately hooked up with Anjelina.
Things became awkward at the 2009 Oscars when both Brad and Anjelina were seated at the front, just inches from where Jeniffer presented awards.
It was the first time the three were seen in the same room and it was awkward. Anjelina and Brad would laugh at her jokes while Jenifer would clap for them for their win.
Anjelina Jolie Kisses Brother
Back in the day, Anjelina Jolie made headlines for some of the craziest things. The award-winning star was a free spirit and did whatever she felt like.
From tattooing her body and publicly showing off the tattoos at a time when actresses were mostly conservative; to marrying a man 20 years her senior.
While her name came up a lot, it wasn’t as much as it did when she planted a kiss right on her brother Jamie’s mouth at the 2000 Oscars.
Many found the scene disgusting and the fact that her brother’s name is Jamie, the thing that comes to mind now is Game of Thrones and Jamie Lanister’s relationship with his twin sister.
A family friend gave some insight into the scene. “The day she kissed Jamie at the Oscars, it was the first day [her mom] was treated for cancer. They left the hospital together and got ready together,” the source said in an interview.
Neil Patrick Harris
This ‘How I met your mother’ actor dropped jaws after he stripped down to his undies live on the Oscars stage.
Sacha Baron Cohen
Back in the year 2012, the hit movie ‘The Dictator’ broke the box office and became a worldwide hit.
As a result, the main actor Sacha Baron Cohen found himself on the red carpet of the Oscars in the same year.
The Dictator actor Sacha had an awkward moment with E Chanel producer and host Ryan Seacrest.
While being interviewed by Ryan, Sacha who was carrying an urn with allegedly former North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il’s ashes spilled them all over Seacrest.
It’s safe to say Ryan was not so pleased and soon the actor was being escorted by bodyguards away from Seacrest. They call it showbiz ladies and gentlemen.
