With (the real) Oscars happening next week, we’ve put together our own list of awards. The Oscars for the Most Unforgettable Oscar Moments. And, the winners are…

Most Unlikely Date – Michael Jackson and Madonna (1991)

Michael Jackson and Madonna 1991

Remember when the Queen of Pop was escorted to Hollywood’s biggest night by the King of Pop. In a 2018 interview, Madonna recalled that night as being “her best date ever”.

Most Beautiful People – AKA when A-listers combine

The stars come out every year for the Oscars, and when two stars combine, they create a super nova. Here’s our list-within-a-list of the most unforgettable partners stepping out together for the evening… and sometimes longer.

Best Speech – Alfred Hitchcock (1968)

Alfred Hitchcock 1968

Iconic Brit-director Alfred Hitchcock stepped on stage to accept 1968’s Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award. Having been given a lengthy introduction, he received the award, uttered the words “Thank you”, and immediately exited stage left!

Biggest Eyeroll – James Cameron (1998)

James Cameron 1998

Another iconic Brit, James Cameron, went overboard when, having politely thanked his Titanic team, co-workers, and supporters, he then went on to declare himself “King of the World!”

Best Fall UP the Stairs – Jennifer Lawrence (2013)

Jennifer Lawrence 2013

Super-talented actress Jennifer Lawrence took a step too far on her way to collect the 2013 Best Actress statuette when she fell UP the stairs. Gathering herself and her billowing gown together, she proceeded to laugh it off in the green room after.

Biggest Snafu! – Moonlight vs. La La Land (2017)

Moonlight La La Land 2017

Cringe-worthy and unforgettable – although the Academy wishes we would – the announcement of La La Land as the winner of Best Picture in 2017 was the worst of all mistakes to make. As Damien Chazelle wrapped-up his acceptance speech, Academy staff tapped him on the shoulder and announced that Moonlight was the real winner!

We’d put money on 2020 giving us plenty of scope to be able to add to these winners!
