LOS ANGELES — It was one year ago at the 2014 Oscars when John Travolta made headlines for introducing singer Idina Menzel as “Adele Dazeem.”
It’s fair to say he one-upped himself this year.
In a cringeworthy moment on stage, Travolta repeatedly touched, and held onto, Menzel’s face as they were presenting.
Menzel did get her revenge on Travolta, as she introduced him with the fake name “Glom Gazingo.”
But that wasn’t all for Travolta.
Earlier in the evening he had an uncomfortable moment with Scarlett Johansson on the red carpet.
He leaned in for a kiss with a surprised Johansson, who kept her hands to her side during the interaction.
Haven’t you ever seen ‘Hitch’, John? Like Will Smith said, “The key to a kiss, is to go 90 percent of the way, and then hold.”
That was not 90 percent.
Travolta seemed to be channeling his inner Joe Biden, after seeing what the vice president did last week.
Travolta has now made headlines at back to back Oscars, and we can’t wait to see what he does next year.
