Jennifer Lawrence Falling at Oscars Gif

Here's something you should know: you should consider yourself very, very lucky that this gif exists, because it further proves just how awesome and incredible and likable Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence is. The 22-year-old Kentucky native fell on the way to receive Best Actress Sunday, a stumble that will undoubtedly go down in Oscar history. Sure it's embarrassing, and sure she was probably too nervous about the fall to fully process her win on stage, but it was very cute and served as a reminder that she's real and the best in Hollywood. 


Best Oscars 2013 Gifs

Now that the long ceremony is over and we can all breathe knowing the award winners, it's time to laugh at the best gifs from the night! From Jennifer Lawrence falling on the way to receive Best Actress to Naomi Watts appearing flushed by the "We Saw Your Boobs" musical number, the 85th annual Academy Awards was a night to remember, and I know you're all going to be thinking about these well into the week. Enjoy and let us know which are your favorites!

Naomi Watts 'We Saw Your Boobs' Gif

Naomi Watts didn't appear to love Oscars host Seth MacFarlane's "We Saw Your Boobs" musical number, and I don't necessarily blame her. Though funny, the song did seem a tad sexist, and I know I'm not the only one who felt that way. Sure this was part of the skit, and chances are, Watts isn't going to cry herself to sleep over this sophomoric skit, but it wasn't cool nonetheless. Anyway, here's a gif of Watts's reaction to the whole thing.

Michelle Obama Best Picture 'Argo'

Picture Credit: Flickr

The first lady made an unexpected appearance at the Oscars by helping Jack Nicholson deliver the Best Picture Academy Award, which went to Ben Affleck's flick Argo. Michelle Obama wasn't at the actual ceremony but she was filmed from a projector. 

Not going to lie: I wasn't exactly pleasantly surprised by her visit, as I prefer to separate my politics and my movies, but as we all know, Michelle Obama is BFFs with a lot of Hollywood types, so this was inevitable. Hopefully next year this won't happen. 

YouTube Ang Lee Best Director Acceptance Speech Oscars 2013

Ang Lee!! Best award of the night! The Life of Pi director won the incredibly tricky Best Director category. 

Steven Spielberg was a top contender for the prize but Lee won and it was fabulous. The Taiwanese director is famous for Brokeback Mountain and Sense and Sensibility. 

I am thrilled that Ang Lee won, the director has made consistently fascinating choices and the difficult task of bringing this novel to the screen was only the most recent. 

We're only a few awards away from the end. Stay tuned. 


Oscars Snubs: Zero Dark Thirty and Steven Spielberg Top List

Big winners at the Oscars included Life of Pi, and Argo. And for the biggest snubs at the Oscars? It seems like Zero Dark Thirty and Lincoln were the biggest snubs of the night. 

Zero Dark Thirty was expected to win, at least, Original Screenplay but the only award the Kathryn Bigelow took home was for Best Sound Editing. Lincoln, although it won for Best Actor, was comparitively snubbed. Steven Spielberg did not win for Best Director and the film lost out to Argo in the Best Picture category. 


'Argo' Wins Best Picture

Well that wasn't a huge surprise.

Argo just won Best Picture. It was quite a year for movies, and there was tough competition, but this one was to be expected. PolicyMic culture editor Elena Sheppard totally saw it coming, and now I owe her dessert. Guess I should have known my editor has good instincts! Here are the flicks that Argo just beat out for the Best Picture Oscar: 

Les Miserables
Life of Pi
Beasts of the Southern Wild
Silver Linings Playbook
Django Unchained
Zero Dark Thirty

Daniel Day-Lewis Wins Best Actor ... Duh

At the 85th Annual Academy Awards Best Actor in a Leading Role went to Daniel Day-Lewis for his role in Lincoln.

The nominees in the Best Actor category were: 

Daniel Day-Lewis, Lincoln
Denzel Washington, Flight
Hugh Jackman, Les Miserables
Bradley Cooper, Silver Linings Playbook
Joaquin Phoenix, The Master

Day-Lewis because the first actor in Academy Award history to win three Best Actor awards. The award was presented by to him by living legend Meryl Streep. Can the stage handle anymore glory? 

Jennifer Lawrence Wins Best Actress Oscar

So my night has just been made: Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress! This is a bittersweet win, being that everyone in this category deserved ample recognition for their performances, but this is great news for the Kentucky native! The only thing I'm wondering is how she can go up from here. What happens when you win an Oscar at 22? Things turned out pretty well for Ben Affleck, who got an Academy Award for Good Will Hunting, but he's been in some stinkers in his day.
AND SHE FELL!! Here are the people she beat:
Naomi Watts, The Impossible
Jessica Chastain, Zero Dark Thirty
Emmanuelle Riva, Amour
Quvenzhané Wallis, Beasts of the Southern Wild
