Let’s take another look at the 2013 Academy Awards before we put the glitzy event in our rear-view mirror.
We knew there was a reason we loved Charlize Theron (other than, well, everything about her). Turns out she saved a man’s life at the Oscars. She rushed to the aid of a security guard who suffered a seizure, and still had time to make it to the stage for her beautiful dance with Channing Tatum. Yes, she’s dreamy.
Of course, there was bound to be a wardrobe malfunction or two. Jennifer Lawrence seems to be cursed with dress issues this awards season. First there was the separation issue at the SAG Awards, then that fall on the steps as she journeyed to the stage to accept her best actress award. Wasn’t it the most graceful, beautiful fall you’ve ever seen at an awards show or anywhere, for that matter? And could Hugh Jackman be any more of a gentleman, as he rushed to help her? We think not.
Why was Kristen Stewart on crutches? And why did she look so pained after hobbling onstage with Daniel Radcliffe to present the production design award to “Lincoln”? Turns out she cut the ball of her foot on glass two days earlier. Youch.
Was the Academy Awards sexist? Of course they were! And we’re not talking about just the fact that Seth MacFarlane was host either.
You know that beautiful Naeem Khan dress Michelle Obama wore to present the best picture award? The Iranian news agency Fars altered the shimmery number, covering the shoulders and chest to make the FLOTUS modest enough for the public there.
Read one reporter’s strange account of David Arquette in the press room backstage at the Oscars. Apparently, he was there as a correspondent for Howard Stern, but things took an odd turn with each of his even odder questions.
What’s next for all the Oscar winners? Adam B. Vary over at Buzzfeed has a great roundup of upcoming projects for Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lawrence and the rest of the winners. It appears that some of them, including Anne Hathaway, have a wide open schedule.
