Oprah Winfrey Cuts Security Line At The Oscars
Winfrey, who was recognized as a producer of Best Picture nominee Selma, provided Oscar viewers with more than a few highlights. First, Winfrey – arguably the biggest star in attendance – was so anxious to get onto the illustrious red carpet, she ducked under the velvet rope while waiting in the security line. Good Morning America caught the moment, sharing it on their Instagram page. Winfrey, who wore a stunning Vera Wang gown to the Oscars, simply lifted the rope and ran out on the other side.
Winfrey was later the subject of host Neil Patrick Harris’ most awkward joke of the night – comparing her wealth to the box office gross of American Sniper – and was the recipient of a Lego Oscar during the performance of Best Original Song nominee “Everything Is Awesome.”
