Rob Lowe croons a tune to Snow White during the opening of the 61st Academy Awards presentation in Los Angeles. Allen Carr produced the ceremony, and was looking to create a “Beach Blanket Babylon”/Cocoanut Grove vibe here. The Lowe number (a reworked version of “Proud Mary”) is generally considered one of the most cringetastic moments in the history of the Oscars.
A streaker appears on stage, surprising David Niven, who isn’t quite sure what’s happening behind him. The man, later identified as Robert Opel, unexpectedly crossed the stage near the end of the Academy Awards show, prompting Niven to quip, “Isn’t it fascinating to think that probably the only laugh that man will ever get in life is by stripping off and showing his shortcomings?”
Jordan Horowitz, producer of “La La Land,” shows the envelope revealing “Moonlight” as the true winner of best picture at the Oscars, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Presenter Warren Beatty and host Jimmy Kimmel look on. Oops.
A woman in Native American dress, who indentified herself as Sacheen Littlefeather, tells the audience at the 45th Academy Awards ceremony that Marlon Brando was declining to accept his Oscar as best actor for his role in “The Godfather.” Littlefeather said Brando was protesting “the treatment of the American Indian in motion pictures and on televison, and because of the recent events at Wounded Knee.”
Presenter John Travolta introduces a performance by Idina Menzel during the Oscars at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Travolta accidentally introduced her as “Adele Dazeem” right before she was about to sing the hit song “Let It Go,” from the animated film, “Frozen.”
Actor Jack Palance does a one-handed push-up on stage at the 64th annual Academy Awards after winning an Oscar for best actor in a supporting role for his performance in the film “City Slickers.”
Sidney Poitier made history by being named best actor of the year for 1964 for his role in “Lilies of the Field.” He was awarded by actress Anne Bancroft, who gave him a kiss when presenting him the award — causing offense among certain racists watching.
Adrien Brody suprises presenter Halle Berry with a kiss after he won the Oscar for best actor for his work in “The Pianist” at the 75th annual Academy Awards.
Bjork, wearing a Marjan Pejoski swan gown, arrives at the 73rd annual Academy Awards. Bjork was nominated for best song for “I’ve Seen it All” from the film “Dancer in the Dark.”
Accepting the Oscar for best documentary feature for the film “Bowling for Columbine” during the 75th annual Academy Awards, Moore elicited a mix of boos and cheers for taking on President George W. Bush — just as the country went to war in Iraq. “We like nonfiction and we live in fictitious times. We live in the time where we have fictitious election results that elects a fictitious President. We live in a time where we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons. Whether it’s the fiction of duct tape or the fictions of orange alerts, we are against this war, Mr. Bush. Shame on you, Mr. Bush, shame on you. And any time you’ve got the Pope and the Dixie Chicks against you, your time is up.”
Director and actor Roberto Benigni jumps on the back of some chairs in excitement after winning the Oscar for best foreign language film for “Life is Beautiful,” during the 71st Annual Academy Awards at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
“I can’t deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me,” Sally Field said in her acceptance speech for Best Actress, via her performance in “Places in the Heart.” Somehow, that quote has been mangled over the years, into the more needy “You like me, you really like me!”
Cuba Gooding Jr. lived up to his “Show Me The Money” character, shouting over the music as he gave his acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor for “Jerry Maguire,” at the 69th Annual Academy Awards.
One of Cher’s most iconic looks, in 1987 during the 59th Annual Academy Awards.
Cher did it again, wearing a memorable Bob Mackie black-sequined gown after winning the award for best actress for her role as the superstitious young widow of “Moonstruck” at the 60th Annual Academy Awards.
David Letterman only hosted the Academy Awards once, in 1995, and he beat himself up for years afterwards about his performance. But Letterman sold himself short — his gig was fun, and memorable — particularly for his silly “Uma, Oprah, Oprah, Uma” routine.
Kevin Spacey, Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence, Ellen Degeneres and Jared Leto joining other celebrities for a group selfie during the Oscars at the Dolby Theatre.
Jennifer Lawrence stumbled as she walked to the stage to accept the award for best actress in a leading role for “Silver Linings Playbook” during the Oscars at the Dolby Theatre.
“South Park’s” Trey Parker, wearing a Jennifer Lopez-style dress, and Marc Shaiman, nominated for the song “Blame Canada” from the movie “South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut,” arrive with “South Park’s” Matt Stone, at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles for the 72nd Academy Awards.
