The Real Story Behind Last Year's Epic Oscar Selfie

Whether or not you tuned into the Oscars ceremony last year, there was absolutely no way you could miss the tweet that broke the internet (sorry Kim I think this has you beat). It circulated for days afterwards with the tall tale that celebrities who take ridiculous selfies are just like us! But, like most moments at the Academy Awards, it was planned, except that in this selfie case, the original plan (to our delight) failed, and in that failure came something so much better.

Paramount Is Promoting Transformers 4 For Best Picture. Seriously.

Apparently Paramount thinks Transformers 4 should win Best Picture this year. No, I'm not even kidding.

Why Andy Serkis Really Could Get Nominated For Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

Not enough praise can be given to Andy Serkis for his work in the Planet of the Apes movies. It's one thing for an actor to realistically become another human being, but Serkis' performances in both Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Rise of the Planet of the Apes are truly one step beyond, as the audience really never imagines for a moment that they're not looking at a chimpanzee.

Apparently BatKid Didn't Appear At The Oscars And It Might Be Andrew Garfield's Fault

More details are starting to emerge about why the segment featuring Andrew Garfield and Batkid was cut from the Academy Awards, and if true, they paint a pretty ugly picture of Spider-Man. Apparently, the bit wasn’t cut for time or because it was awkward. It was cut because the actor stormed out of rehearsals and refused to be apart of it after producers told him he wasn’t allowed to write his own lines.

BatKid Was Bumped From The Oscars And His Family Wants To Know Why

“I don’t know if they ran out of time, of if there was something about the segment they didn’t like. It got pulled so quickly that we didn’t have a lot of insight into what was going on," said Natalie Scott. "We had gone all the way down there, and he went through the rehearsal and he had a fancy tux and was all ready for it.”

Two Oscar Voters Admit They Didn't Watch 12 Years A Slave, Voted For It Anyway

Personally, I think that’s disgusting. And I don’t want to put words in McQueen’s mouth, but I’m fairly confident he’d reject the votes of an Academy member who didn’t even bother to WATCH his film before casting a ballot.

The Simpsons, LEGO And More Spoof Ellen's Oscar Selfie

While many have decried The Simpsons for dated storylines hampered by the amount of time it takes between writing an episode and having it air, no one can say they were late to the game parodying the star-studded Oscar selfie that host Ellen DeGeneres took at Sunday’s Oscars ceremony - which will go down in short-attention-span history as the Tweet that temporarily broke Twitter.

John Travolta Finally Responds To His Adela Dazeem Disaster

Travolta didn’t give any explanation. So we are left to guess. Could he not read the prompter? Did he suffer a mini-stroke? Did the vowels in Idina Menzel’s name simply swim together at the least opportune time? Or does Travolta simply not give a care. “I’ll call you what I call you!”

John Travolta's Famous Movie Lines Get Spoofed In Parody Following Last Night's Oscar Flub

When you make a funny mistake in front of a lot of people, it's only natural that people are going to rib you for it. That's exactly what John Travolta is going through right now. At the Academy Awards last night, the star was on stage to introduce the musical performance of Frozen's "Let It Go" by Idina Menzel, but accidentally called her "Adele Dazeem."

The 86th Annual Academy Awards Was The Most Watched Entertainment  Telecast In A Decade

Oscar Pizza Came From A Real Pizzeria That Got A Major Bump

Big Mama's & Papa's Pizzeria not only got paid for the pizzas they delivered to the Academy, but also got roundabouts $10 million in free advertising for their business.

What Was The Deal With The Black Ribbons At The Oscars?

The ribbons and the slapped-on banner that promises a complete list of those in the film community who passed away this year, relate to Sarah Jones, who tragically died while shooting the Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider.

Ellen Was The Oscar Host We Needed AND The One We Deserved

Hiring DeGeneres to host the show was a deliberate move back to “center,” and co-producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron received the show they hoped she’d deliver. It wasn’t edgy. It wasn’t controversial. But it worked.

18 Of The Best And Worst Oscar Moments, In GIF Form

The morning after, we're feeling already nostalgic…and roughed up from too much champagne (okay, it was technically sparkling white whine we got at the grocery store). So let's take a look back at some of Oscar 2014's wildest moments in GIF form.

Monday Movie Memo: 6 Films That Had A Really Disappointing Oscar Night

Zero. That’s how many Oscars, combined, were won by American Hustle, The Wolf of Wall Street, Captain Phillips, Philomena and Nebraska.

Cate Blanchett Wins Best Actress Oscar At The Academy Awards

Rightly or wrongly, Blanchett has the reputation of being a little stiff. She’s considered an artist’s artist who isn’t necessarily accessible to the average person and may not be a whole lot of fun. Well, she did her best to blow that reputation out of the water this evening with a rousing, fun and weird speech that included the hashtag “#SuckItJulia”.

12 Years A Slave Wins The Oscar For Best Picture

"Everyone deserves, not just to survive, but to live," McQueen said in his speech. And he’s right. McQueen was handed the mic after executive producer (and co-star) Brad Pitt gave a few words, saying how proud he was to follow the story of Solomon Northup.

Alfonso Cuaron Is The Best Director Oscar Winner For Gravity

Gravity traveled through two administrations at Warner Bros., struggling to earn a greenlight as Cuaron pitched a $100 million thrill ride primarily through the eyes of one superstar. Originally that would be Angelina Jolie, with Robert Downey Jr. providing the support, but none of the parties involved expected a daunting technical process that basically involved the invention of entirely new technology.

Songwriter Robert Lopez achieved a huge career accomplishment this evening when he won the Academy Award for Best Song for his work on the Disney Animated tale Frozen, but in actuality that’s only a fraction of what is actually an even bigger accomplishment.
