Today's News: Our Take - Top Videos: Oscars, "The Evolution of Mom Dancing," What Babies Really Do During Naptime, More
This week, the Oscars happened! Host Seth MacFarlane's opening monologue, which featured the musical number "We Saw Your Boobs," sent lots of people into a tizzy, and Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence gave a backstage press conference that charmed the masses. First Lady Michelle Obama stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and taught everyone the nuances of "mom dancing," and a basketball cheerleader sunk a you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it shot from half court. Check out those clips and more in this week's Top Videos:
The Evolution of Mom Dancing: In honor of the First Lady's "Let's Move" fitness initiative, Jimmy Fallon and Michelle Obama filmed this video highlighting the various stereotypical moves employed by moms on the dance floor. Mrs. Obama told Fallon she embarrasses her two daughters, Sasha and Malia, with her dancing as often as possible. Two things of note: the First Lady does a really impressive Dougie, and Fallon makes a really good middle-aged lady.
Movie the Movie 2V: Check out the trailer for Jimmy Kimmel's Movie the Movie 2V, the sequel to last year's spoof Movie the Movie, which he debuted on his post-Oscars show. The "film" stars basically every actor and actress who's currently working.
Seth MacFarlane's Oscar Monologue: The first-time host and Family Guy creator predictably offered a slew of jokes that were considered borderline or outright offensive, including a one-liner about Chris Brown and Rihanna. But the part of the show that's getting the most negative attention is his "We Saw Your Boobs" musical number, which highlighted the topless scenes (or lack thereof) of nominees and other actresses like Anne Hathaway, Naomi Watts and Kate Winslet. What do you think? Was MacFarlane hilarious or out of line?
Jennifer Lawrence's Post-Oscars Press Conference: Minutes after she tripped and fell while walking to the stage to accept the award for Best Actress, the Silver Linings Playbook star gave a refreshingly candid press conference backstage, where she addressed the mishap and also her "getting ready" routine before the show. Oh, she also flipped off a reporter and confessed to doing a shot right before taking questions. Never change, J-Law!
Amazing Half-Court Shot: Check out this William Carey University cheerleader sinking an amazing half-court shot at halftime - a difficult enough task on its own, but she also incorporates a quick front handspring at the beginning to grab the ball. No big deal!
This Nap Is NOT Happening: These parents were curious about how their baby, Jude, actually spent "naptime," so they installed a video baby monitor to find out. The results are surprising - and pretty hysterical.
