Not only the nominees and honorees had their big appearance in the limelight on the evening of the Oscars, but also the celebrities who present the awards can create memorable moments with their few minutes on stage – such as actress and director Elizabeth Banks ( 49), such as “cbsnews.comreported.

Elizabeth Banks had problems with her robe

At first she had significant problems even getting onto her place on stage with her dreamy robe. The flowing black dress with a long and tight white petticoat didn’t make it easy for her to move around.

She stumbled and almost fell, bringing back memories of Jennifer Lawrence (32), who actually fell while accepting her Oscar for Best Actress for Silver Linings in 2013. She took it with humor at the time, as did Elizabeth Banks.

However, Banks’ unwavering good humor may also have had something to do with the fact that she was accompanied on stage by a giant bear. The 49-year-old presented the award for best visual effects, also referring to the film “Cocaine Bear” (in German: Kokain-Bär), which she directed and which has been on the big screen for several weeks is: It is about a true story that happened 40 years ago. In Georgia, a bear swallowed a large amount of cocaine that was apparently thrown off a plane by a drug smuggler.

The implementation of the material would probably not have been possible without visual effects. Likewise, nominated films such as “Top Gun”, “Avatar: The Way of Water” or the Marvel hit “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” would not have been realizable, which delighted the viewers with their breathtaking visual effects.

Elizabeth Banks on the “Cocaine Bear”: “You have to wait for the after party like everyone else”

The bear that accompanied the actress on stage was intended to represent what the animal would look like in the film if there were no visual effects: “It’s horrible,” says Elizabeth Banks. “Without visual effects, the cocaine bear would have been some actor in a bear costume – probably under the influence of cocaine,” she added.

Then she reprimanded her shaggy companion for not throwing himself at her: “You have to wait for the after party like everyone else,” she clarified. With this wonderfully chaotic and humorous performance, the actress and director had the laughs on her side.

As expected, the prize went to director James Cameron’s “Avatar: The Way of Water”.
