The Oscar Highlights

In case you've been living under a social media rock and missed it, the 2014 Academy Awards aired on Sunday. 

Although it's fun to watch and make predictions, I learned to start watching about an hour after it "starts" so I can skip some of the red carpet. The red carpet coverage can be entertaining--mainly for the un-rehearsed tumbles and fumbles, but it just seemed to DRAAAG this year.

So here are the things you missed in case you didn't watch:

Best Host Award goes to Ellen DeGeneras

Her hilarious antics included: (check out the top 20 here)

Pizza for the Crowd. Guess how much the pizza boy was tipped?

Happy Tuesday!
