Everything but the Oscars

2012-02-28 12:38
Congrats to all the Oscar winners!

While The Artist cleaned up and Meryl walked away with her third statuette, these are probably not the most memorable moments of the year's biggest awards show.

This year the Oscar winners were overshadowed by Sacha Baron Cohen's throwing of the ashes, Jennifer Lopez's almost nipslip and Angelina Jolie's right leg. Seriously Ange, do you always have to steal the limelight?

Of course she does! Although I don't think she needed to employ those awkward stances to get noticed. I still can't figure that one out.

However, these unexpected talking points saved the day. Do we really need to comment on Billy Crystal's ninth stint as Oscars host? Snore.

In light of these "controversial moments", check out movies ed Shaheema Barodien's Alternative Oscars which celebrate the evening's best cameos, reunions and comebacks.

Did you tune in to the Oscars ceremony this year, or do you prefer to get all the coverage online? E-mail us with your thoughts and you could be published!

Here's to a great week, and if it's not going so well, cock out your right leg and see what happens.



Local is very lekker!
