Before the crazy Oscar show there's always the crazy red carpet. As part of our ongoing live coverage we've collected some of the most irreverent moments from the Oscars, pre-actual Oscars. Take a look, from hungry Jennifer Lawrence to the Kristin Chenoweth backlash and Anne Hathaway's nipples.
Quvenzhané Wallis' Puppy Purse
Wallis told Ryan Seacrest: "This is a special dog."
Quvenzhané Wallis puppy purse update: It is wearing a tiara, sparkly choker, and bored expression during Piers Morgan's questions. #Oscars— VANITY FAIR (@VanityFair) February 24, 2013
On a separate note, E! correspondents insisted on calling Quvenzhané Wallis "lil' Q."
Eddie Redmayne's Hair
The Les Misérables hunk stepped out with a bizarre hairdo. It did nothing to detract from his gorgeousness, but it did make for some good jokes on Twitter.
Eddie Redmayne is rocking the not-often-seen "Side Caesar" hairdo. #Oscars— Ryan McGee (@TVMcGee) February 24, 2013
Eddie Redmayne's hair looks like Justin Bieber caught in a wind tunnel. #PeopleOscars— Go Fug Yourself (@fuggirls) February 24, 2013
Jacki Weaver as the "Big Bad Wolf"
The Silver Linings Playbook actress complimented Seacrest's eyes, and Twitter turned her into the "Big Bad Wolf."
Jacki Weaver to Seacrest "what beautiful eyes you have." Big Bad Wolf pickup game! (KW)— ThePlaylist (@ThePlaylist) February 24, 2013
Sally Field Ties Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Bow Tie
Jennifer Lawrence Messes With the Mani Cam
Jennifer Lawrence gave one of her characteristically awesome interviews. Complaining about how she hasn't had time to eat and the show's so long.
"Is there food here?" Jennifer Lawrence for president. vine.co/v/bggdaZWqTVP— Dave Itzkoff (@ditzkoff) February 24, 2013
Then she yelled into E!'s terrifying Mani Cam to Emma Stone: "Your ass is mine, Stone." The Mani Cam however missed it, being apparently only reserved for hands.
The E! mani-cam just missed what will likely be its best shot of the night. The cord came out just before J. Lawrence stuck her face in it.— Speakeasy (@WSJspeakeasy) February 24, 2013
More priceless J.Law moments include this face:
And her getting "bleeped" when talking with Kristin Chenoweth.
Anne Hathaway Prompts Nip-Slip Question
Anne Hathaway's Prada dress—which looked to some like an apron and which she chose apparently three hours before she arrived—prompted some, well, propriety questions.
Can we actually see Anne's actual nipple?? #PeopleOscars— Go Fug Yourself (@fuggirls) February 25, 2013
I think you can actually see the outline of Anne Hathaway's areolae, which is fine if that's what she was going for, but. #Oscars— Doree Shafrir (@doreeshafrir) February 25, 2013
However, the conclusion is that those were actually fabric folds after all.
LADIES, now, you KNOW those things are not nipples. they are fabric folds. come on— Juli Weiner (@juliweiner) February 25, 2013
She and Seacrest also talked about what games they like. He likes Farkle, she likes Cards Against Humanity.
Broadway star and red carpet host for ABC Kristin Chenoweth has prompted some backlash on Twitter. The bubbly pint-sized singer has had Hugh Jackman pick her up, made a lot of her tiny size, and insisted on asking guests what's hiding in a box that supposedly holds the "Oscar Mystery." (The mystery item, which Anne Hathaway guessed correctly, was Dorothy's ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz.)
Drink every time Kristin Chenoweth mentions her height. #Oscars— Anna Klassen (@AnnaJKlassen) February 25, 2013
and the Oscar for Most Insufferable goes to ... Chenoweth or Hathaway?— Jen Doll (@thisisjendoll) February 25, 2013
Kristin Chenoweth is an assault.— Rich Juzwiak (@RichJuz) February 25, 2013
Kristen Chenoweth is fishing for compliments out there. "You know how I feel about your talent, but what do you think of mine?"— Todd VanDerWerff (@tvoti) February 25, 2013
Here, Chenoweth displays how tiny she is against Adele:
Presenter Kristen Stewart appeared in Reem Acra...and crutches.
