As much as the Academy Awards are an annual opportunity to reward some of the very greatest achievements in the year of film, for many viewers they're also a ripe chance to soak in thermonuclear levels of cringe and bask in the outright insanity of the Hollywood awards circus.

From drunk A-listers making fools of themselves on stage to painfully misguided opening musical skits, horrible attempts at comic relief, shock awards wins, and everything else in-between, the Oscars is a reliable repository of WTF moments year-in and year-out.
