TiVo: Jennifer Lopez's Alleged (and Denied) 'Slip' Was Oscars' Most-Watched Moment

You like the Academy Awards’ Best Costume Design and Makeup category, you really like it. How else to explain TiVo’s report that the presentation of that award — by Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz — was the most-watched moment of the telecast among its subscribers?

According to TiVo’s StopWatch next-day ratings service, J.Lo and Diaz’s presentation was watched 14 percent more than the average moment of Sunday’s night’s telecast — meaning that, basically, it experienced the most rewind/playback.

Of course, as anyone who had their ear pressed up against Twitter or Facebook last night may have heard, Lopez was the subject of “wardrobe malfunction” claims as soon as she hit the stage, though her stylist later maintained that because of hi-tech infrastructures built into the dress, there was “no chance” of anything slipping out.

Placing second on the most-watched list was another pair — Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow, up 13.5 percent — followed by Meryl Streep claiming her Best Lead Actress prize (up 13.3 percent).

    I was wondering the whole time if that was part of her areola… it for sure was, on the left side of her body.

    There is “no chance” of it not being unintentional. If there was a nipple slip (I didn’t watch the ceremony), it may not have been done on purpose but Lopez wanted the most revealing dress she could get, just as she did with the catsuit a few years ago and with lots of dresses at previous ceremonies.
    Let’s be blunt, she’s over 40 and she’s a mother of two, which actually killed her potential for lead parts as a sex-symbol in the movies. She’s trying to convince everybody that she’s still got it by using the same methods a Nicky Minaj or an AnnaLynn McCord would try, plus the boy toy. You can bet she’ll try this kind of stunts over and over for the next few years. And she fails to notice that, by acting and trying to look like somebody who’s half her age, she reduces being a woman in the music business to being a young pretty thing who screams for sex. Well, that’s true when you don’t have any real talent.

    I knew it was her areola peeking out!

    I think I inadvertently contributed to this statistic. I wasn’t really paying attention at this time. But Cameron Diaz screaming “take a chance!” into the mike made me stop and look up. I then rewound my Tivo to figure out why Diaz was saying this.
    So, Tivo, not all of us were checking to see if JLo had a wardrobe malfunction. Although, I did snicker when she read off that quote about having a dress loose enough to prove one is classy. That was some delicious irony, there, Oscar producers.
