We’ve had a day to process the all-day event that was the 2014 Oscars. Putting the whole pizza fiasco behind us, here are our fave moments from the show.
Best: Ellen broke the Internet After taking an impromptu super all-star selfie (except for Lupita’s brother, who is basically photo-bombing) Ellen announced that "We crashed and broke Twitter. We have made history." The craziest part? Not one of them had their eyes closed or a double chin.
The worst: When John Travolta butchered Idina Menzel’s name For seemingly no reason, uber-jet-black-haired John Travolta introduced singer Idina Menzel as "Adele Dazeem” before her performance of Frozen’s “Let it Go.”
Of course, the Internet responded. My fave? Slate.com’s
name generator. My name comes out as Kaitlyn Herdson—still so much closer than Travolta got to Menzel’s name.

Least effective: Jared Leto got political "To all the dreamers out there in the world watching this tonight in places like Ukraine and Venezula,” he said during his speech, “I want to say we are here and as you struggle to make your dreams happen we are think of you tonight." It’s a really lovely sentiment—unfortunately, the show isn’t broadcast in Venezula…Because they are too busy struggling.
Best social media reference: Cate Blanchett dissed Julia Roberts After winning Best Actress, Blanchett shouted to her fellow nominee to “#suckit.” There is something so perfect about hearing that elegant accent toss out potty language. What were your favourite moments?
