So much has been said of the bear scenes from The Revenant that you'd think the jokes would be over by now, but after a trailer for the film, the cameras cut to a bear clapping and the film's director obviously didn't find it funny.
He was likely thinking, "What is this? The Golden Globes?"

After a trailer for The Revenant played during the ceremony, the cameras cut to an applauding bear (you know, because that bear scene). Cameras then cut to the film's director, then to Leo, who could not have cared less about the cheap joke.
Maybe you'll have better luck next time, Academy Awards writers!

Poor Jennifer Garner. During the entire Oscars show it seemed like she would have rather been anywhere else. This was no more apparent than when the cameras cut to a man in a bear suit clapping for The Revenant.
It was almost as if Garner wasn't sure how she was supposed to look while on camera and her face went through ALL the emotions: happy, sad, frustrated, hungry, hangry, sleepy, and confused.

Rock's joke about Black teens getting taken out by the police went over about as well as you'd think it would have. It's a sensitive topic and racially-charged jokes can be a challenge, even in a room full of would-be Hollywood liberal types.
However, actress Olivia Munn seemed to take the joke the hardest.
