Recap of the 87th Academy Awards

oscar_statue copyIf you did not catch the Academy Awards (aka the Oscars) this past Sunday night, have no fear because you will find all that you need to know about the 87th annual award show here. It was hosted by “How I Met Your Mother” star Neil Patrick Harris. From performances to the interviews, the fashion and, of course, the award ceremony, the show was not one to miss.
For the fashion side of the evening, E! News broadcasted a segment before the actual ceremony began, which featured the opinions of Khloé Kardashian as they scored attendees on their attire as each arrived onto the red carpet. Of course, Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Aniston were the picks of the night for the four ladies judging from the studio. And, of course, Lady Gaga, although having calmed down over the course of the last year on her choice of attire, made a statement in what seemed to depict that of red, rubber marching band gauntlets.
Adam Levine, accompanied by his wife Behati Prinsloo, confessed to Ryan Seacrest during the pre-show interviews that performing at the Oscars was something he never thought he would have the opportunity to experience.
John Travolta earned the title of the Best Inadvertent Performance Artist by one Twitter user based on the coverage E! News made on the “creepy” behavior the actor showcased during the course of the evening. First by photobombing multiple selfies (one of the more popular ones, Benedict Cumberbatch’s), awkwardly face-touching Idina Menzel when she invited him onto the stage as a sweet, plotted revenge for last year’s show where he horribly mistook her for Adele Dazeem, and then kissing Scarlett Johansson’s cheek from behind (Yes, we are all incredibly jealous of him) on the red carpet.
The major winners were “Birdman” for Best Picture; Eddie Redmayne in “The Theory of Everything” for Leading Actor; Julianne Moore in “Still Alice” for Leading Actress; J.K. Simmons in “Whiplash” for Supporting Actor, Patricia Arquette in “Boyhood” for Supporting Actress; and “Big Hero 6” for Best Animated Film.
