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.

Quotes

Catherine Martin - Winner: Best Costume Design and Best Production Design: I do have a few words tucked into my bra. It's a very Australian thing to do. It's where you put your tissues. I'll be very short. It's not a long list. Of course, I'd like to thank the Academy but mainly I'd like to thank my incredible team. I have a group of ladies who are sewing for me right now in Sydney on a show we're making of Baz's first film, a musical. They're my golden girls. They've been working with me for 25 years. They bring me such incredible luck. They'll all be watching the TV...

7.8 out of 10?!?!?! Who are you people?
11 March 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Who in the world saw that travesty unfunny train wreck of a show and thought it was worth anything higher than a 1? In fact it is even less than that, it is a zero, but for some inexplicable reason IMDb.com will not let me rate this any lower than a 1. This show was so bad and Ellen Degeneres is such a giant suck host that I signed up for this IMDb.com account just to post this awful review. Trust me when I say that me getting up off my lazy butt and doing all this work just to tell strangers how much I hate a show really says something. I didn't even go to all this trouble after I watched Lebron James' Decision special on television.

What parts of this show did you 90 year old housewives enjoy the most? Was it the part where she pretended like she was ordering pizzas for all of the movie stars? I bet you really slapped your knees and hooted when she said she was collecting money for it and then revealed that the hat she was collecting the money in was Pharrell's hat. Oh boy oh boy that guy's hat is huge!

That and the rest of the parade of jaw droppingly horrible jokes made me want to scream. How can anyone enjoy this hacky parade of a hack fest awards show?
