Academy Awards Show Highlights: The Performances
Let’s start with the show-stopping numbers: From Catherine Zeta-Jones‘ electrifying rendition of “All That Jazz” to Jennifer Hudson‘s chilling performance of “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” we were in musical heaven. And just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, the entire cast of Les Miserables — yup, even Russell Crowe —took to the Oscars stage for a performance of “One Day More”.
Speaking of Les Mis, the night was also full of huge wins! After a suspenseful awards season, Anne Hathaway finally took home her first Oscar for her role as prostitute-singer Fantine; and the Twitter-verse was thrilled when Argo won Best Picture, validating Ben Affleck once and for all. And then there was Adele, who was super-adorable as she accepted her award for Best Original Song.
Kristen Stewart: We Saw Your Boobs … & Your Crutches
And who could forget Kristen Stewart? Not only was she name checked during “We Saw Your Boobs,” but she also bravely stepped out on stage to present alongside Daniel Radcliffe. With a bum leg and a wicked cold, K-Stew easily could have backed out of her responsibilities — but she soldiered on, and for that, we salute her.
Other highlights included: Barbra Streisand’s performance of “The Way We Were,” which left us all weeping like little babies; Channing Tatum and Charlize Theron showing off their crazy dance skills; and, of course, Sally Field making out with Seth MacFarlane.
