Vine Star Marcus Johns Hangs With Clint Eastwood, J.K. Simmons, Others At Oscars

23 February 2015 12:56 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

For the second year in a row, Fandango sent Marcus Johns to the Oscars, and once again, the Viner's trip to the red carpet provided both charming and awkward moments. During his time at Hollywood's Dolby Theater, Johns chatted with several prominent actors, directors, and musicians while also bothering many more.

Fandango gave Johns a microphone, set him loose on Hollywood, and collected his best moments in a video released on the Movieclips Trailers channel. Among other highlights, he took a selfie with Best Supporting Actor J.K. Simmons, sang "Everything Is Awesome" with nominees Tegan and Sara, and shook Clint Eastwood's hand, at which he exclaimed that he "can just die." Along the way, several other celebrities decided not to give the young Vine star any attention. We're sorry that Rosamund Pike lied to you, Marcus.

Simmons, who scored an Academy Award win for his role in Whiplash, wasn't »

Will Arnett Performs 'Lego Batman' Song at Oscars 2015

23 February 2015 11:33 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the more memorable performances during last night's 87th Oscars telecast was the Oscar-nominated song "Everything is Awesome" from The Lego Movie, performed by Tegan and Sara, Andy Samberg and The Lonely Island. The performance had a number of other surprise guests, including QuestLove from The Roots, The Lego Movie composer and Devo singer Mark Mothersbaugh and even Batman himself, as portrayed by Will Arnett.

Of course, Will Arnett voiced Batman in The Lego Movie, but he actually sang a few lines from his hilarious Batman song in the movie called "Untitled Self Portrait," which was intertwined with "Everything Is Awesome." The "Untitled Self Portrait" song could be heard in the Batwing during Batman's introduction in The Lego Movie. After the performance, The Lego Movie director Chris Miller revealed that the actor actually wore Val Kilmer's Batman suit from the 1995 movie Batman Forever during the Oscars.

Watch The Amazing Performance Of Everything Is Awesome From The Oscars 2015

23 February 2015 5:05 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Prepare to have Everything is Awesome stuck in your head again, as last night's Oscars played host to a massive performance by Tegan and Sara, with The Lonely Island along for the ride, of The Lego Movie's unbelievably catchy ear worm. It may not received an Oscar nod for Best Animated Film, but all the stops were pulled out for its sole nomination, Best Song. It may have lost to Selma's Glory, but you can't deny this performance, including dancing construction workers and Will Arnett in a Batman suit, is, indeed, awesome. »

Oscars 2015: 13 of the best and worst moments from this year's awards

23 February 2015 2:25 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Academy Awards are over for another year, and it was a somewhat less predictable, more feisty show than we're used to, with winners making political statements and striking back against the widely-dreaded 'get off the stage' music.

But there was plenty of groan-worthy moments to get worked up about alongside the fun, and for those of you who are mentally stable enough not to have watched the entire thing live, we've picked out 13 of the night's highs and lows.

1. Pawel Pawlikowski defeats the play-off orchestra - Best

If you apply traditional rules of narrative to the Oscars, the protagonists and antagonists are pretty clear. Our plucky heroes are the bright-eyed, breathless winners, and the villain of the piece is without question that malevolent orchestra that's always cutting their speeches short. In 2013, they even played the Jaws music, just in case you needed further proof.

Watch: ‘Everything is Awesome’ at the Oscars Thanks to Will Arnett’s Batman and Oprah

22 February 2015 10:40 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Lego Movie” might’ve been snubbed in the Oscars’ Best Animated Film category, but the performance of its catchy theme song, “Everything is Awesome,” certainly livened up the plodding ceremony. Tegan and Sara and The Lonely Island took the stage with a bevy of construction workers, cowboys and an awesome possum to share their enthusiasm — even getting Oprah in on the action with an Oscar statue made of Lego blocks.

An unexpected highlight of the performance came from Will Arnett (who provided the voice of Batman in the animated blockbuster) when he appeared in the Batsuit for an interlude of the Caped Crusader’s dark and brooding heavy metal song from the film. And even though “Everything is Awesome” lost the Best Song gong to “Selma’s” emotional “Glory,” it certainly made for one of the most memorable moments of the night.

Watch the surreal performance below:

The 'Everything Is Awesome' Performance at the Oscars was...Awesome! (Especially That Oprah Cameo)

22 February 2015 10:05 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Revenge isn’t best served cold. It’s best served awesome.

The Lego Movie may have been (inexcusably, unexplainably, unforgivably) snubbed in the Best Animated Feature category, but the movie still left its mark on the Academy Awards, with an awesome, everything-and-the-lego-cowboys-too performance.

Since the movie’s theme song, “Everything Is Awesome,” did earn a nomination in the Best Original Song category, Tegan and Sara and The Lonely Island got to take the stage and perform amid dancing construction workers, astronauts, and at least one giant furry critter.

News: Here are the best moments from Neil Patrick Harris’ opening number!

Plus, there were a few special cameos. Like Will Arnett as Batman:

Yes, that really is Arnett under that Lego batsuit! He voiced him in the movie -- and will voice him again in a spinoff -- but we weren’t expecting him to be jamming on the guitar tonight, so that was »

'Glory' Wins Best Original Song at Oscars, Brings Cast to Tears

22 February 2015 8:32 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"Glory," the emotional musical centerpiece about the civil rights movement from Selma, bested "Everything Is Awesome" (The Lego Movie), "Grateful" (Beyond the Lights), "Lost Stars" (Begin Again) and "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" (Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me) to win Best Original Song at the Academy Awards.

As images of the civil rights movement and the march on Selma appeared in the background, Common and John Legend performed the song shortly before their win. A chorus joined the duo onstage, slowly marching in lockstep to simulate civil rights protestors. David Oyelowo, »

The 15 Most Memorable Moments From the 2015 Oscars

22 February 2015 7:41 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Stay weird. Stay different." That was the advice of Best Adapted Screenplay winner Graham Moore ("The Imitation Game") to kids out there who might one day follow in his footsteps, but it also could have been the motto for the 87th annual Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday night. The weirdness of the Neil Patrick Harris-hosted Oscars wasn't in the results -- for the record, I went 18 for 24 in my predictions, which is more a testimony to how closely the voting followed conventional wisdom than it is to my crystal-ball skills -- but in the presentation. The show was full of Wtf? moments, some wonderful, some cringeworthy, some merely bizarre, and all of them memorable. Here are some of the weird and different Oscar moments that viewers won't soon forget.

1. "Moving Pictures"

Neil Patrick Harris's opening number was penned by Robert Lopez and Kristin Anderson-Lopez, the composers who »

Oscar Performance: ‘Lego Movie’ Nominated Song ‘Everything Is Awesome’ Sung by Lonely Island, Tegan and Sara (Video)

22 February 2015 7:09 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Anytime a song from an animated film is in contention for an Oscar, the telecast is challenged with staging it in real life. For “The Lego Movie’s” rousing hit “Everything Is Awesome,” they tapped some “SNL” gems, indie rockers and a spoof-tacular Batman. The Lonely Island — aka Akiva Schaffer, Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone — joined Tegan and Sara in singing and rapping the track, music and lyrics by Shawn Patterson. They were joined onstage by Will Arnett dressed as Batman (whom he voiced in “Lego Movie”) with Questlove of “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” decked out as sidekick Robin. »

"Everything Is Awesome" Might Be the Weirdest Oscars Performance Ever

22 February 2015 7:06 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you saw The Lego Movie, you're well aware of the chaos that is "Everything Is Awesome." Tegan and Sara teamed up with The Lonely Island, including Andy Samberg, to perform the original song at the Oscars, bathing the room in neon lights. It's so energetic and so weird that it almost wraps around to normal. At one point, audience members (like Oprah!) get impressive Lego Oscars, and Will Arnett shows up. It's definitely the strangest thing that's been performed at the Oscars, and for that, we love it. Check it out! »
