Roberto Benigni climbs chairsMost people use chairs for sitting. When Roberto Benigni won the Oscar for Best Actor for “Life is Beautiful” he used them to jump his way to the stage. With no sense of modesty, the actor wasn’t afraid to show his excitement for winning.
Adrien Brody kisses Halle BerryWhen Adrien Brody won the award for Best Actor in 2002 for his role in “The Pianist” he was the youngest in Oscar history. When he raced to the stage to receive his award, he surprised everyone in the audience by planting a big kiss on Halle Berry.
Actor, Rob LoweThough he named both Rob Lowe and John Stamos his possible replacement, Charlie Sheen is more likely rooting for Lowe whom he described as an old friend.
George Clooney’s smug acceptance speechWhen George Clooney accepted the award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in 2006 for his role in “Syriana” his speech was rather smug. He gave Hollywood a pat on the back by saying it is responsible for changes in society. “We’re the ones talking about AIDS when it was being whispered, we were the ones talking about civil rights when it wasn’t popular,” he said.
Bjork’s swan dressWhile the Academy Awards are mainly about the movies, fashion also plays a major role. Bjork shocked everyone with her dress in 2001. Some people loved it. Others hated it. Regardless, it received a lot of attention.
Michael Moore’s acceptance speechIt’s usually nice when winners keep their acceptance speeches short and sweet. When Michael Moore won the Oscar for Best Documentary in 2003 for “Bowling for Columbine” a few snarky remarks toward politicians were expected. No one expected a full-on rant against then president George W. Bush. What was even more awkward were the boos from the audience.
Marlon Brando and Sacheen LittlefeatherIt’s always a little disappointing when winner isn’t there to accept his or her award. Things got a really strange when in 1973 Marlon Brando was not present to receive the Oscar for Best Actor for his role in “The Godfather.” He sent up Sacheen Littlefeather, an Apache and President of the Native American Affirmative Image Association who said that Brando could not accept the award due to the negative depiction of Native Americans in TV and in movies. Boos and cheers ensued.
Elinor Burkett interrupts Roger Ross WilliamsThis sounds a lot like what Kanye West did to Taylor Swift at the MTV music awards. No one expects a rude interruption during the classy Academy Awards. In 2010, when Roger Ross Williams accepted his award for his short documentary “Music by Prudence” Elinor Burkett stormed to the stage and stole the spotlight.
David Letterman, Uma and OprahThe Academy probably won’t be asking David Letterman to host the Oscars again. When Letterman hosted the 67th Annual Awards Show in 1995, he kicked off the ceremony by poking fun at Oprah Winfrey’s and Uma Thurman’s names. “Oprah. Uma. Uma. Oprah,” he said. “Have you met Keanu?” The joke fell flat.
