Oscars 2015: Best and Worst Moments

It was a very good night for TV actors at the 2015 Academy Awards — with Patricia Arquette (Medium, CSI: Cyber), J.K. Simmons (Oz, The Closer, Law & Order) and even Julianne Moore (As the World Turns) and Eddie Redmayne (The Pillars of the Earth) snagging the four major acting prizes.

And yet only two members of that elite quartet made our gallery of the 20 Best and Worst Moments from the Oscars’ nearly four-hour telecast.

Instead, we found ourselves reeling from Lady Gaga’s Sound of Music tribute, Adele Dazim’s sporting gesture and a perfectly tear-jerking rallying cry from The Imitation Game‘s clear and present screenwriter.

Also on our radar? Host Neil Patrick Harris’ hat-tip to Jennifer Aniston and David Oyelowo, not one but two tighty-whitey moments, a righteous Meryl Streep-J.Lo collaboration and an unexpected reminder of the brilliant-but-cancelled Red Band Society.

So, click through the gallery below for our Best and Worst picks, then hit the comments with your cheers, jeers and complaints about any highlights we might’ve missed!
