And now, let's take a moment to reflect on Oscar Award Ceremonies past. Specifically, this bizarre number from the 1989 telecast. Snow White? Rob Lowe? Enormous hats? Is this an award ceremony or a musical fever dream?

To those who are too young to have seen this, I can assure you as someone with fond memories of watching this opener with my family that it made absolutely no sense even in the context of its time period. It was simply one of the strangest moments of live TV that I have ever seen.

I didn't think anything could equal that, but Buzzfeed did feature a piece on a 1969 Oscar moment that might rival this one: http://www.buzzfeed.com/adambvary/the-….
