Stomp Sucks
1996 Note to producers: The show is already long, so cut the musical numbers. In 1996 the awards were interrupted for a lengthy 'Tribute to Sound Effects' by the dance troupe Stomp. This basically consisted of people sweeping to old movie clips. It would have been best swept under the carpet.
"Awww, shit!"
1995 Many people expected Samuel L Jackson to win the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Pulp Fiction. None, apparently, more than Jackson. When Martin Landau was named victor, Jackson forgot the generally accepted reaction of 'rictus grin and polite applause' in favour of a less gracious, "Awww, shit".
Jon Stewart's Dreams
2006 Everyone was surprised when Daily Show host Jon Stewart was asked to host the 2006 Oscars, given the possibility for political upset. Apparently nobody was more surprised than Stewart, whose opening bit featured every recent host (and Mel Gibson) turning down the chance to return, culminating in him waking up and realising it's true - and that he's in bed with George Clooney. It's laughs like this that got him invited back for 2008.
Ellen Snaps Spielberg
2007 Ellen Degeneres was widely criticised for being too nice in her shot at hosting in 2007. But her cuddly compering featured a lot of fun moments, none more than the bit where she asked Steven Spielberg to take a picture of her with Clint Eastwood so she could use it on Myspace. She actually used it.
