The award ceremony of the prestigious Oscar Awards is one of the biggest events in the film industry. About $ 44 million was spent in 2018 to organize the event, attended by 3300 guests and viewed by viewers from 225 countries. The most important thing is the ceremony to move on. But even if the preparation is meticulous, it does not mean that over the years everything has passed without problems.
1. Мr. Lawyer — Marlon Brando
During the 45th Oscar ceremony, Marlon Brando received the award in the Best Actor category (for The Godfather). But the actor refused to attend the event. And in his place, an unknown actress went up on stage who explained that Marlon did this in order to protect the rights of Indians in the movie industry.
2. Ms. Lucky — Barbra Streisand
According to the rules of the Motion Picture Academy, the award for best acting is given to only one person. But in 1969, a unique thing happened — 2 actresses received the same number of votes and both received the award for Best Actress. It was Katharine Hepburn for The Lion in Winter and Barbra Streisand for Funny Girl. Katharine did not attend the ceremony, so Barbra got all the attention.
3. Mr. Rebel — Richard Gere
Richard Gere was supposed to announce who the winner was but instead, he started discussing the political issues of China. Because of this, the Academy prohibited Gere from attending the ceremony for 20 years.
4. Mr. Thankful — Adrien Brody
Adrien Brody received the Oscar for his role in The Pianist in 2003. The actor was so happy that he even kissed Halle Berry, who was on stage at the moment. Since then, Halle hasn’t attended the ceremony very often.
5. Mr. and Ms. Bad Commentary — James Franco and Anne Hathaway
James Franco and Anne Hathaway were chosen as hosts of the ceremony. The actors made such bad jokes and demonstrated such inappropriate behavior that critics agreed that their show was the worst in the history of Oscars.
6. Ms. Strike-a-Pose — Angelina Jolie
In 2012, Angelina Jolie chose a black Versace dress for the ceremony. She tried to emphasize the elegance of her dress by showing her right leg all the time, both on the red carpet and on the stage. Jolie’s leg even got its own Twitter account after that.
7. Ms. Fall — Jennifer Lawrence
Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence fell during the ceremony 2 times! In 2013, her dress was very long, she stepped on it and fell on the stairs when she was going to the stage to receive her Oscar for the role in Silver Linings Playbook. And just one year later, she fell on the red carpet again, but security helped her back up.
8. Ms. Hostess-with-the-Mostest — Ellen DeGeneres
The leading 86th ceremony was Ellen DeGeneres. As the real mistress of the evening, Ellen took care of not only a fun and interesting program for guests, but also about treats. The woman went to the scene with a courier and began to treat the stars with pizza, and then asked celebrities to throw off the guy for tea.
9. Mr. Style – Naked Man
In 1974, while the British film actor David Niven announced the nomination, a completely naked man rushed out onto the stage. Later it turned out that it was a photographer and a fighter for LGBT rights, Robert Opel. It is thanks to this “naked procession” that the whole world learned about it.
10. Mr. Unsuccessful Kiss – John Travolta
The Oscar-winning ceremony saw a lot of kisses: from the passionate Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban to the shocking ones when Angelina Jolie kissed the pump of her brother James Haven. But the most ridiculous and ridiculous became the kiss of John Travolta. In 2015, on the red carpet, he ran up to Scarlett Johansson, who at that moment, unsuspecting, posed for cameras. Their joint picture scattered on social networks and became the occasion for hundreds of memes.
11. Mr. Bad Manners – Sasha Baron Cohen
The eccentric actor and producer Sasha Baron Cohen in 2012 went out on the red carpet in the costume of his character from the movie “The Dictator” by Haffaz Aladin. In his hands, he held an urn.

12. Mr. Memory Lapse — Leonardo DiCaprio
There have been so many jokes about Leonardo DiCaprio and his Oscar. The talented actor had to wait a long time to finally receive one. In 2016, the dream of millions of people came true and he got the Oscar for his role in The Revenant. But that same night, he forgot it in the restaurant where they were celebrating. When DiCaprio was leaving the restaurant, a man caught up with him and returned the award.
In 2017, when the winner for the Best Picture category was supposed to be announced, the envelopes were switched accidentally and as a result, La La Land got the award. After the mistake was fixed, the award was given to Moonlight.
13. Best Dress — Billy Porter
American actor Billy Porter shocked everyone with his dress for the 2019 Oscar ceremony. He appeared on the red carpet wearing a tuxedo-dress. Christian Siriano, the winner of the 4th season of Project Runway, was the designer.
