86th Annual Academy Awards Highlights

The Oscars just ended and we have rounded up the events top 7 highlights. If you haven’t seen the awards ceremony, that’s alright because all you need to know about the prestigious night are in this list.

1.     Lupita, Meryl and Amy busted some moves

2.     Ellen orders pizza
The host, Ellen Degeneres, asked the stars attending the event if they are hungry for some pizza. She then later on calls for the pizza guy whom she asked for assistance to help her distribute pizza slices to Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Kerry Washington, Jared Leto and many others.
Pizza for everyone.

3.     Adele Dazeem, I mean, Idina Menzel performs Frozen’s “Let It Go”.
Before her performance, John Travolta introduced her to the audience as Adele Dazeem. The incident was very funny until we found out that Travolta suffers from dyslexia. We now forgive him and I guess Idina does too.

4.     Ellen’s tweet
Ellen’s another attempt to amuse the audience and the millions of viewers watching the show is her tweet pic with the stars. She asked Meryl Streep to take a picture with her to get the most retweets. Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Angelina Jolie, Lupita Nyong’o (and her brother) Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Channing Tatum, Julia Roberts and Jared Leto’s left eye got into Ellen’s selfie.
