Top 5 Awkward Moments From Last Night's Oscars

Last night at the Oscars was truly Travolting. 

We've compiled the Top 5 most awkward moments from last night's ceremony. See if you can read this article without pulling a face of displeasure.

1. John Travolta and Idina Menzel

Travolta and Menzel were paired to present the Best Original Song award. Ironically, this awkward moment was spawned from a previous awkward moment. Now we can't work out which was awkwarder. LET GO OF HER FACE, JOHN.

2. Host Neil Patrick Harris In His Pants

Neil Patrick Harris performed a skit that referenced the eventual Best Picture winner Birdman, by hosting a section of the show in his "tighty whiteys". Awkward, yes, but quite literally, we admired his balls.

Watts that, Naomi? Ryan doesn't want to Sea you after all?


4. Common Leaves Oprah Winfrey Hanging

We're not sure if this one was deliberate or not. Regardless, it wasn't awfully dignified.

Common went to high-five Oprah Winfrey as he and John Legend were named winners of the Best Original Song award. The pair performed Glory, which proved to be the only Oscar-win for Selma.

5. John Travolta Ambushes Scarlett Johansson With A Kiss

"STOP! That old man is about to make off with a waxwork of the popular actor Scarlett Johansson!"

Actually, if you think it's bad in close-up, take a look at the long-range version...
