The 24 most memorable moments from Oscars 2014

Ellen ordered pizza. She really did.

WELL, WE HAD to have a little sit down after all to happenings on the Oscars red carpet, from Fassbender’s Irish mammy, to J-Law falling and Lupita’s radiance.

Oh, and Fassbender hugging people. We can’t.



And of course there was this:


But what about the main event?

We’ve captured some of the very best moments, from pizzas to selfies to a winning jump.

1. Ellen’s quick-as-anything J-Law joke

So, we’re sure by now you know this happened:


And Ellen was right on the ball, ready to pick up on J-Law going in her ear once again.





2. Ellen’s 12 Years a Slave joke

5. Lupita dancing with Pharrell

Lupita is very close to stealing J-Law’s ‘luminous’ crown. Fierce close.

7. Jared Leto’s lovely speech and his ridey mam

Who would have guessed that Jordan Catalano would go on from all his leaning and brooding and win a bloody Oscar?

He brought his mam and his brother and made our eyes leak with this lovely acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor.


Lest we forget:


And look how much of a ride his mam is. Bravo Mrs Leto.


8. The winners of the Animated Short being as cute as anything

When the French makers Mr Hublot came to the stage to college their award writer/producer/director Laurent Witz fumbled for his speech and said:

I have to take a paper.

And our hearts, dear readers, melted.

At last count it had more than 2 million retweets.



14. Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s blue socks

Look how much of a gent he is. You could bring him home to your mammy and leave him peeling spuds with her and know he’d do you proud.
