The Oscars are right around the corner, and everyone's gearing up for the festivities. We're also preparing for a few awkward moments here and there—controversial dresses, awkward speeches, and so on.
Before the fun gets underway in Hollywood, relive some of the Academy Awards' best blunders for a few chuckles!
Adrien Brody in 2003
An Oscar win is quite an achievement, and Adrien Brody celebrated his victory with a passionate smooch on Halle Berry. She was practically gasping for air when their lips finally parted!
Jennifer Lawrence in 2013
Jennifer Lawrence eagerly ventured towards the stage to accept the best actress award for her role in Silver Lining's Playbook...she just happened to miss a few steps on her way to the mic.
Björk in 2001
As if the Pejoski swan dress wasn't enough to turn heads, the singer decided to lay eggs on the red carpet as well. It certainly made for interesting photo ops!
Cher in 1986
This iconic looks is, well...something. But truthfully, would you expect any less from Cher?
John Travolta in 2014
It's safe to say it's best to read cue cards ahead of schedule. That way, you won't flub anyone's name. AHEM, John Travolta.
Nicole Kidman in 2017
The internet had a field day when it caught a glimpse of Nicole Kidman's bizarre clap. (Turns out there was a method to the madness—she was attempting to keep her jewelry safe!)
Matt Stone & Trey Parker in 2000
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery: Looks like the South Park creators nailed these famous red carpet looks, don't you think?
Eminem in 2020
Guess who's back, back again, Shady's back. No one was prepared for Marshall Mathers' return at the 2020 Oscars.
Warren Beaty in 2017
The winner is...La La Land! (But actually Moonlight.)
Robert Opel in 1974
The artist decided the red carpet event was the best time to go streaking. Yikes!
Lizzy Gardiner in 1995
The starlet used 254 expired American Express Gold cards for her red carpet look.
