Oscar Rehearsal Photos Show MacFarlane, Theron, Tatum And More At Work

There has certainly been plenty to say about the 2013 Academy Awards since its broadcast on Sunday night. Some loved Seth MacFarlane as host, while others didn't appreciate his sense of humor quite as much. That's to be expected though. Whether you liked the opening or not, the effort put into the show was evident. In addition to some warm-up jokes to get the show started, the Family Guy creator was joined by dancers, a chorus and a number of celebrities who took the stage to participate in the opening number. Some behind-the-scenes photos have arrived online, which give us a look at the rehearsals, from Charlize Theron and Channing Tatum's fantastic dance, to Jennifer Lawrence's brief cameo and more.

EW posted a pretty great slideshow of rehearsal photos, which shows us some of the practice runs for last Sunday night's Oscars broadcast. Here are a few of them.

First up, this adorable photo shows Charlize Theron and Channing Tatum dancing together, and clearly enjoying it.

Theron and Tatum weren't the only dancing duo. Daniel Radcliffe and Joseph Gordon-Levitt teamed up with Seth MacFarlane during the opening number and later during the ensemble number.

And Jennifer Lawrence got in on the act for a reaction shot during the "We saw your boobs" song. Here she is, getting made up and prepped for the shot.

Here's another one featuring Theron, which shows her taking a breather with MacFarlane. She's dressed in rehearsal clothes, but it looks like she's breaking in her dancing shoes.

You can view EW's full slideshow, which includes a few more great shots of Theron and others featured in the opening number, as well as some glimpses at the rehearsals for the tribute to musicals segment here.
