Oscars 2014: My Top 5 Favorite Moments

You gotta love the Oscars! They started at 8:30 PM ET and I knew I’d be up past Midnight. And I hung in until the end! I thought it was a fun show with cool moments, but there were no real surprises. (Well, besides this horrible flub by John Travolta.)

Here are my Top 5 Favorite Moments from Hollywood’s most glamorous night:

1. Pizza!

Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres ordered pizza for the hungry celebs about halfway through the show and it could have been a serious eye roll moment, but it was adorable. That’s how good Ellen is as host. It was especially awesome to see Brad Pitt munching down on a slice of cheese while Kevin Spacey passed out the paper plates. Later, Ellen brought out Pharrell’s hat to collect money for the delivery dude. It was hilarious to see the hundred dollar bills getting passed down the aisles. Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyong’o did not have cash, but she threw in her lip balm. (Clarins HydraQuench, in case you were wondering.)

2. The Ultimate A-List Selfie!

You know it’s the “Year of the Selfie” when celebrities still clamor to get in the shot. Ellen handed Bradley Cooper her phone to snap this epic photo from the audience. Not only is it so awesome (Brangelina! J-Law! Julia!), but it crashed Twitter. This pic currently has over 2 million retweets and is the most retweeted photo on Twitter EVER.

3. Happy!

Pharrell did not wear his signature hat on the red carpet, but he started a brand new social media trend with his tuxedo shorts. My son turned to me and said, “Mama, that is what I would wear to the Oscars!” But that infamous hat did return when Pharrell sang the Oscar nominated song “Happy” from Despicable Me 2. The performance featured colorful dancers bopping around to the catchy beat. But the best part was when Pharrell headed to the front row to boogie down with Lupita Nyong’o, Meryl Streep, and Amy Adams.

4. Alright. Alright. Alright!

He did it! Matthew McConaughey won the Oscar for Best Actor for his amazing turn in Dallas Buyers Club. It wasn’t a surprise, but it was still so sweet. And Matthew gives the best acceptance speeches. He said he needs three things in his life to survive: God, family, and someone to look up to as a hero. Love him.

5. White Suits and Princess Dresses!

I love to see what the celebrities are wearing as they walk down the red carpet and this year did not diaappoint. My favorite fashion moments were the men in their white tuxedo suits and those dreamy princess gowns. Here are my favs:
