And the Oscar Goes To…. (Hint: Not American Hustle)

And the Oscar Goes To…. (Hint: Not American Hustle)

The Snap:

The 86th Annual Academy Awards Ceremony debuted across America this week, providing viewers with an evening of outfit-judging and collective dismay that “American Hustle” headed home with a big fat ZERO Oscars.  Below, take a look at the highlights and the winners of this year’s event.

The Download:

We laughed when host Ellen Degeneres took a Twitter-breaking, star-studded selfie. We cried when Jennifer Lawrence fell on the red carpet (and laughed again when she offered up a characteristically witty comeback). We were blown away by Pink’s stunning Judy Garland tribute (watch below), and we all proved how shallow we are when we filled the internet with comments about Kim Novak’s plastic surgery. Finally, we all fell asleep after trying to stare at the screen for an events ceremony that ended up being as long as 1.2 Wolf of Wall Streets.”
