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).
Rounding out the Top 5, TVLine has learned, were Octavia Spencer receiving the award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, and the night’s closing honor, Tom Cruise announcing The Artist as Best Picture (at the wee hour of 11:36 pm EST).
