South Park Boy-girls
2000 If you invite the South Park boys, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, to the Oscars, well, you're just asking for it. The pair, nominated for Best Original Song for 'Blame Canada', arrived dressed in outfits made famous by, respectively, Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow. They've since admitted that at the time they were more shit-faced than Mr Hanky The Christmas Poo, so it's probably best they never made it to the podium.
Michael Moore Loses The Crowd
2003 The world wondered whether the Academy would put aside politics and reward Michael Moore for Bowling For Columbine, the biggest and best documentary of the year, given the sensitive political climate and the director's public disapproval - OK, hatred - of George W Bush. When Moore won, he was as outspoken as ever and his Bush-baiting was equally cheered and jeered.
Spielberg Finally Wins
1994 Though he'd received nominations for his more multiplex friendly fare, Steven Spielberg wasn't given Oscar gold until he proved to the Academy that he could do absolutely anything he set his mind to. With Schindler's List he proved himself the most versatile living director and Oscar couldn't throw enough awards at him.
Snow and Lowe
1989 This so-awful-it's-genius musical introduction to the 1989 ceremony has everything a perfect disaster needs. It's got a shrill Snow White impersonator, people dressed as giant stars, old celebrities looking confused, current celebrities looking bemused, and Rob Lowe looking like he's realised halfway through his horrible pastiche of 'Rollin' On A River' that he's made a horrible, horrible mistake.
