A Lil' Oscar for Lil' Shirley
1934 Most of those fortunate enough to receive a career recognition award have one foot in the grave and the other shuffling close to the edge. Shirley Temple was given an Honorary Juvenile Award in 1934 "in grateful recognition for her contribution to screen entertainment". She was six.
Peevish Penn
2005 Oscar audience members have to accept a little friendly ribbing from the host. Sean Penn failed to get into the spirit when he took exception to Chris Rock making a gag about Jude Law appearing in every film released last year and not having any hits. Fun-loving Sean then took the comedian to task while presenting an award, insisting Law was "one of our finest actors".
Grace Beats Judy
1955 A Star Is Born was supposed to mark Judy Garland's big comeback after many troubled years and an Oscar win would top it. So confident was everyone that she'd be victorious that a camera was set up outside her hospital window, where she had just given birth, ready to reveal her as the winner. A spanner was thrown in the works when Grace Kelly won for The Country Girl.
"I do all my own stunts"
2006 One thing you must not do when presenting an Oscar is embarrass yourself. So we have to love Jennifer Garner for her appearance at the 2006 awards. The actress tripped on her dress, leading to a possible blooper moment for the ages. But instead of blushing/weeping/committing hari-kiri she laughed, "I do all my own stunts". Class.
