The Oscars are Hollywood's version of a vogue ball, and this year's event pulled out all the stops with fierce looks, endless categories and a healthy dollop or two of shade. So join us as the original ball queens of Paris is Burning react to 2015 Oscar's most talked-about moments.
Patricia Arquette Shades E!’S Mani-Cam
E! didn’t have their “mani-cam” on the red carpet this year, but the Best Supporting Actress winner still threw some deserved shade.
“There’s this silly mani-cam business going on,” said Arquette. “I was supposed to get a manicure this morning. But instead I was working on launching this Chideo site, where you can enter a sweepstakes and go with me on a global mission with one of our projects, with GiveLove.org.”
Between that, and her call for pay equity for women, we'd say Patricia has got her priorities in order. Or as Paris is Burning would react:
Neil Patrick Harris calls out the industry's lack of diversity
During his opening monologue, NPH threw shade at the homogenous makeup of the acting nominees. "Today we honor Hollywood's best and whitest. Sorry, brightest."
Meryl And J-Lo steal the show
When Patricia Arquette called out for wage equity in her acceptance speech, the crowd went wild. But it was the reaction by Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez that really had everyone flipping. (Kudos to whomever designed the seating chart.)
NPH comes out in his underwear.
In a nod to Birdman, and perhaps to show off his still toned body of work, NPH came out in his tightie-whities. He looked good, but we can't help but wonder if he stuffed.
Terrence Howard gets all emotional
Terrence Howard gave the most confusing performance of the night when, he got choked up over just thinking about The Imitation Game. “It’s mind blowing, our next film….our next film is amazing. I’m blown away right now myself….”
Did Howard think he was up for Best Presenter? Or was he trying to be this year's Adele Dazeem moment? Or maybe, as many Oscar viewers were speculating, he was just very, very stoned.
Adele Dazeem's revenge
When Idina Menzel and John Travolta were reunited on the Dolby Theater stage. The two were all smiles, but the jokes about the infamous Adele Dazeem mikeup were overshadowed by Travolta's rampant face touching.
Is Travolta's vision getting so bad he has to feel faces, or was he just scanning Menzel for makeup tips.
Lady Gaga was alive with "The Sound of Music"
Singing a medley of songs from The Sound of Music Gaga continued her reinvention tour—replacing outre costumes and antics with a demure presentation and jaw-dropping vocals. And suddenly Mother Monster is back in our hearts.
