9. The directors of The Lego Movie dissing the Oscars after being snubbed in the nominations

Phil Lord and Chris Miller stepped up to the stage to accept their award, and said:

Chris: You guys win the award for best academy.

Phil: You are our favourite academy by far… This is the end of the awards road for us. The good news though is we can say whatever we want.

10. And finally, Tom Cruise getting introduced as “Tom F***ing Cruise”


And just doing his Tom Cruise thing all over the place.
