Yesterday was the big night in Hollywood as most of America tuned in to see the glitz, glamor and of course that little golden man we all know simply as Oscar. Many of us built our entire day around the big event as we had our own parties while watching the celebrity interviews, the red carpet fashion show and of course the handing of the Academy Awards. Even though the presentations are over those twitter birds are still chirping up a storm over the spectacle.
It is human nature that we like to see little things go bad for those that we usually only see in the best light. So, it is only natural some of the most tweeted about moments of the Academy Awards last night were those little flubs, trips and embarrassing moments that let us know that celebrities are just as prone to those little mishaps as the rest of us.
One of those little missteps that was big on twitter was actually a step as Jennifer Lawrence tripped on the steps as she was walking up to the stage to accept her Best Actress award. What create so much buzz though wasn’t the fall itself but that the beautiful 22-year-old wasn’t seriously hurt and the way that she was able to recover quickly and find humor in what was an embarrassing moment on one the biggest nights of her young life. Ms. Lawrence didn’t miss a beat as she dusted herself off and received her award. Later in an interview when she was asked about the fall she joked about how it was planned and even offered to show off the mark on her leg. One of the best tweets about the classiness of how the young actress handled the incident and the later interview was the following:

Kudos to Jennifer Lawrence for treating stupid press questions like stupid press questions!
One other event of last nights award ceremony was when the First Lady of the United States made an appearance as one of the presenters. As the big show was winding down and there was one last award to be presented Jack Nicholson took the stage. Shortly after starting his presentation he turned to the big screen behind him and introduced Michelle Obama where the First Lady was handed the envelop and announce that “Argo” won the Best Picture.
