6 Oscar Moments That Left Viewers Uncomfortable

The Oscars honor transferring performances and the very best achievements in the movie industrybut the ceremony itself? never perfect, nor even close to it.
The comedic writing for the show often appears to falter, in spite of a great host, or hosts who appear correct an idea (see: Anne Hathaway and James Franco). Since the Oscar rite is added to our dwelling rooms as a stay telecast, errors are certain to manifest. Celebrities are people, too in any case.
For the duration of the Oscars’ 88-12 months records, there have been lots of uncomfortable, bizarre, and just offensive moments that made each person at domestic and at the rite itself sense very awkwardly.

Here are the most awkward moments throughout Oscar history.

Seth Macfarlane ‘saw your boobs’

Seth Macfarlane hosted the Oscars in 2013 and got a generally terrible reception from Hollywood and viewers across the country. The New Yorker called it a “hostile, ugly, sexist night.” Macfarlane opened the ceremony with a song called “We Saw Your Boobs,” which called out actresses in the audience who had shown their boobs in movies. The whole bit demeaned serious actresses for serious roles in serious movies (some of the movies he pointed out involved rape scenes), just because they happened to be topless at some point.

Bjork lays an egg

Singer Bjork arrived at the 2001 Oscars in what is now known as the “swan dress,” which was exactly what it sounds like. To enhance the look, Bjork introduced “ostrich bags” that allowed her to lay eggs on the red carpet. Although it appears on many worst-dressed lists, it’s become iconic. In 2015, the dress made it to an exhibit in her honor at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
