Kelly & Michael: After Oscar Show
For the third year in a row, Live! presented an After Oscar show, live from Los Angeles on the Academy Awards stage. Before Kelly and Michael introduced themselves, things got off to a visually stunning sight: a performance by Cirque Du Soleil’s Amaluna, opening March 20 2014 in New York City.
Then the hosts took over the Dolby Theatre stage, where Kelly Ripa admitted that she had been up all night. Michael Strahan said that they are both operating on no sleep. But Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts hooked the hosts up with In & Out double cheeseburgers to keep them going for another hour.
Kelly and Michael: Oscar Parties
Instead of heading to bed, the hosts went out with the A-listers, hitting the Vanity Fair party after the Oscars. Then they split up, and Kelly went to Madonna’s party. When she left, the party was still going, and people could not believe that she was returning to work. Michael said people kept reminding him that he had to be at work soon!
Kelly said that she thought everyone looked great on the red carpet this year, and she noticed that there were many coconut scents among the revelers. First up, Michael Strahan shared his red carpet report, noting that the weather cleared up just in time for the big event.
Kelly & Michael: Idina Menzel, Amy Adams + Jessica Biel Beauty Tips
Kristen Bell said she was looking forward to Idina Menzel’s performance of “Let It Go,” and Idina humored Michael with his own rendition. Viola Davis said that she worked hard to get into her dress, admitting that she did not have a lot of patience for picking out gowns.
Amy Adams said she wanted to karaoke with Kelly and Michael on a future show. Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis said they are expecting a boy, but they could not name any non-movie names. Jessica Biel said that her beauty secrets are boring, and the list included drinking water, getting enough sleep, exercising, and the occasional martini…being married to Justin Timberlake agrees with her.
Kelly and Michael: Sidney Poitier, Ethan Hawke + Jennifer Garner
Michael Strahan was excited to meet Sidney Poitier, and Naomi Watts said she would wear jeans or sweats on a Sunday afternoon. Kerry Washington complimented Michael’s gap, and Tyler Perry recalled that he almost didn’t make it on stage three years ago as a presenter.
Anne Hathaway loved Michael’s red suit, and Ethan Hawke loved being congratulated by the host. Jared Leto was with his brother and mom on the red carpet. Lupita Nyong’o celebrated her birthday the day before the Oscars. Kate Hudson explained her Oscar tradition to Michael, which concludes with In & Out. Matthew McConaughey said he was not nervous because there was nothing he could do about the outcome. Zac Efron said his beauty trick was to get a haircut.
Jennifer Garner said that she does not know more about football than Strahan, despite what Ben Affleck said on a recent show. Michael kept busy hanging out with the stars, and there was plenty more to come from the big night.
