Trivia

John Travolta accidentally mispronounced the name of Idina Menzel as "Adele Dazeem" while introducing her to perform Best Original Song nominee (and winner) "Let It Go" from Frozen (2013). News of Travolta's faux pas quickly went viral across the Internet, to the point that a fake Playbill insert for Menzel's Broadway musical "If/Then" proclaimed Menzel would be replaced by "Adele Dazeem" for subsequent performances.

A pizza and hero themed Oscars? An Oz tribute still the rightful winners won!
15 March 2014 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Ellen was back once again as host of the Oscars and she was pretty funny for the 86th edition of the annual academy awards. The show was all right with it's music and the theme of hero at the movies was just fine with a "Wizard of Oz" tribute clip as "Over the Rainbow" was sung. Of course the show was once again to long with many awards being handed out still most of the top prizes went as expected and they were well deserved. As Cate Blanchett winning best actress as a tormented female soul in Woody Allen's drama "Blue Jasmine" was rightfully deserved. And in my opinion the strongest tag team performance of the year occurred in "Dallas Buyers Club" as the raw and tough emotional gritty performance from two rebels rightfully won Jared Leto a best supporting actor Oscar and Matthew McConaughey the best actor award and the speeches both gave were powerful and emotional a real stand speech effort. And the pizza pass out and cell star snap picture was okay for the show still probably the best movie of the year "12 Years a Slave" rightfully won best picture. Not the best Oscar awards show of recent years still a pretty good one.
