Neil Patrick Harris magic trick, 2015

The one thing anyone can say about the Oscars with any degree of certainty is that they are far, far too long.

Its either a testament to how bad 007 had gone by 1982, or a testament to how few Bond films the Academy had watched, but Sheena Eastons performance of that times Bond theme was genuinely appalling.

Dick Poop. Dick. Poop.

Michael Moore goes booed, 2003

We saw your boobs, 2013

Political discourse thankfully extinguished, the 2013 ritual was mainly notable for a song in which Family Guy creator turned violently monotonous parlour singer Seth MacFarlane boasted about knowing what Meryl Streeps boobs( amongst other) was like. Perhaps we were too hard-handed on the politics stuff.

Jennifer Lawrence descends over, 2013

Jennifer Lawrence, shes just like us. Shes entertaining and refreshing and, on the opportunity of the biggest professional validation available to a working performer, shell trip over on a stair and fall to the floor in front of the entire world like a gigantic dumbass. Like you, essentially.

Adrien Brody Kisses Halle Berry, 2003

Adrien Brodys win for The Pianist was already contentious, since that cinema was directed by a being who once pleaded guilty to a charge of unauthorized sexual intercourse with a child.
