The Oscars Recap
The good, the bad and the embarrassing fresh from LA LA Land.
Photobombs, nipple flashes and the apology someone owes Ryan Gosling.
The red carpet was rolled out and LA shone brighter than ever as the City of Angels played host to the 89th Annual Academy Awards. As tradition has it each and every year, there were laughs and tears, great dresses and dressed to make you groan, nipple flashes (thanks Mariah Carey), and photobombs (thanks Justin Timberlake)
On this night of nights, we learnt Nicole Kidman can’t clap.
… And that being awake is optional (Chrissy Teigan slept through Casey Affleck’s speech)
And we saw heart-throb and all-round good guy Ryan Gosling whispering sweet nothings …
And Justin Timberlake take out the prize for the best photo bomb.
But the prize of the night, without doubt, goes to the stuff-up that just about broke the internet last night (so many good memes).
The stage was set: Faye Dunaway, alongside her fellow presenter Warren Beatty, read the name of the film printed on the card in front of her for best picture.
"La La Land!" she claimed triumphantly.
The real answer, though, was Moonlight but Dunaway had been handed the wrong envelope. Oops.
Meryl Streep’s facial expression, perhaps, is the most accurate visual representation to date of the enormity of the mistake.
Commiserations also to Gos (had to include this because he is so darn handsome).
Boo boos aside, what were the best looks?
Naomi Harris, all in white.
Rosie Huntington Whiteley – a dress with room for two
Leave yourself plenty of room to move in a dress that knows that something’s got to give.
And Chrissie Teigan, this one’s for you. Something a little more comfortable for those naps.
