The usually prestigious Academy Awards were reduced to farce earlier this week, when the wrong envelope was given to presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, who mistakenly announced the wrong movie as Best Picture. This titanic clusterfuck actually did the Oscars a favour, drawing attention away from these other 30 goofs that all happened on the night.
The mainstream media is full of fake news. Hollywood is full of failing celebs, who don't even know me. If the big movies this Oscar season, which I hear are very overrated, told the truth, they'd look like this. Sad!
Newly crowned Oscar recipient Mark Rylance today told the theatre it could do one.
Well done, Leo. After 25 years in the industry and 6 nominations, you have finally won an Oscar, and all it took was an epic feat of endurance, a disgusting loss of dignity and an entire internet's worth of pity.

Except Birdman. That was kind of the winner.
Shut up everyone, the Oscar nominations have been announced! No one cares about your new haircut, Janice
! As is customary around these parts, it's impossible for us to comment on a news item without making some sort of crudely Photoshopped picture, so we decided to make new posters for the nominees that tell you what you can really expect.

We've all had a good laugh at poor old John Travolta for his unfortunate lingual boner at the Oscars - the moment he introduced actress/singer Idina Menzel on stage as "Adele Dazeem
", he practically invited the entire internet round to ridicule him. Travolta may have flubbed Menzel's name, but it could have been worse: what if John had been tasked with reading the names of the nine movies nominated for Best Picture? And we all had to just go with it? Let's dare to go to there.
As soon as I heard today's announcements for the 2014 Academy Awards, I opened up Photoshop and whipped up these 15 mildly amusing honest poster alternatives in five minutes flat, because I'm just that talented. Seriously. These didn't take a month, no matter what you've heard. Off the cuff humour, each and every one. And that's the truth.
I'd say I didn't see it coming, but I totally called this back in June 2011. Something tells me we'll see the return of Awesome Drunken Ben Affleck for one night only. 'Gratz, Argo guys. Arguys.

Because writing down quick thoughts and opinions about things as they happen is preferable to typing up a well-reasoned and cohesive article the next day.
