86th Academy Awards Coverage

By Amanda Valentovic Special to the Chronicle

This year’s Academy Awards have come and gone. All of the Oscars have been taken home, and the red carpet has been rolled up. But the 24 golden statues handed out on film’s biggest night sometimes do not cover all of the deserving moments of the evening. Here are some categories that were dropped off of the program on Sunday night.

Best dressed: Ellen DeGeneres channeled Glinda the Good Witch after a tribute to The Wizard of Oz, and it should have been her red carpet look. Lupita Nyong’o can also add this to her shelf of awards, along with Most Likely to Look Good in Anything She Wears.

Biggest Slip of the Tongue: John Travolta practically asked for this award when he mispronounced Idina Menzel’s name so significantly that no one knew whom he was introducing.

Most Creative Speech: Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez turned their acceptance speech into another Best Original Song, complete with rhymes and a pitch for a sequel to award-winning Frozen.

Best Throwback: Jennifer Lawrence managed to stay on her feet through all of awards season, and then unintentionally made it her own tradition to fall at the Oscars.

Most Likely to Always Go to Work on Award Show Nights: The pizza delivery man Edgar Martirosyan will make sure he is at work any time there is a big event happening in Hollywood, just in case the audience gets hungry.

Best Host: Ellen managed to have a pizza party and shut down Twitter with the Best Selfie Ever simultaneously. She could probably win Best Host of a show that she is not even hosting.
