This year’s 86th Academy Awards managed to put smiles on not only the winner’s faces, but the viewers at home. The women dressed in sparkling delights and the men carried a trend of white. With the talented Ellen DeGeneres hosting, her comedic skills indulged us all and left Hollywood’s finest feeling very laid back and playful. As our favorites names were read out, the orchestra allowed them to deliver empowering and emotional speeches. To highlight the show, here are THEPOPFIX’s Pop 5 2014 Oscar Surprises.

Pop 5: 2014 Oscar Surprises


5. Singers Get Pitchy

Pharrell and Darlene Love both seemed to be struggling vocally, while we felt slightly awkward during Bette Midler’s post in memoriam performance of “Wind Beneath My Wings.” Thankfully Pink wowed the audience with her tribute to “The Wizard Of Oz” with “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.


4. American Hustle Shutout

The American crime comedy was nominated for ten awards and walked away with zero golden statues. Categories ranged from “Best Supporting Actor/Actress” to “Best Production Design.” This was one heist they failed to complete successfully. Meanwhile “Gravity” walked away with seven awards.


3. Jennifer Lawrence Falls…Again!

We all remember her famous trip up the stairs while accepting her award for “Silver Linings Playbook” at the 2013 Oscars. Even if you forgot, Ellen reminded us all during her opening monologue. She also brought up that upon arrival Jennifer fell again, but this time almost taking someone else down also…and producing us with a hilarious GIF.


2. Ellen’s Record-Breaking Selfie

As any host would do, Ellen walked down the theater aisle and began asking the stars to join in on her selfie. With phone in hand a group gathered around including: Jennifer Lawrence, Kevin Spacey, Bradley Cooper, Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Jared Leto, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong’o, and even her brother in attempt to break the record of most retweets on Twitter. Her mission was accomplished as she surpassed the previous record held by Barack Obama on election night in 2012.


1. John Travolta’s Flub

Travolta butchered Idina Menzel’s name when introducing her as “Adele Dazeem” for her performance of “Let It Go” from the movie “Frozen.” It was definitely the biggest WTF moment of the night, and it didn’t take long for the flub to be created into a Twitter account, that shared some hilarious tweets.
