The 9 Craziest Things That Have Happened At The Oscars
Created by Dan Auty on
The Academy Awards are the biggest night of the year in Hollywood. Whether you see it as a celebration of cinematic achievement, a cynical backslapping exercise, a giant marketing campaign, or (most likely) a combination of all of these, it's a must-watch event for every movie fan. This year's awards were a safe, respectful affair that attempted to represent the shift in attitudes towards gender and race that is occurring in Hollywood right now. There was a sense of the industry trying to reset itself and generate a sense of community; it was more about being there to support one another than wallowing in the glory of victory.
So for those who look to the Academy Awards for controversial moments that we'll be talking about for years to come, it was a disappointing night. But it remains the case that the long history of the Oscars have been marked with some crazy and unforgettable incidents. From falls and flubs to excruciating speeches and bizarre clothing choices, here are some of the wildest moments in Academy Awards history.
