USMagazine, Sunday, February 24, 2013, 10:00pm (PST)

The 2013 Oscars brought some memorable moments both on and off the stage. On stage, Seth MacFarlane kicked of the 85th annual Academy Awards show Sunday, Feb. 24 with a joke about Rihanna and Chris Brown's turbulent romance. On the red carpet, Anne Hathaway's sideboob-baring Prada gown quickly inspired the Twitter account HathawayNipple.

Of course, the award ceremony was also filled with unforgettable speeches by Best Supporting Actor Christoph Waltz, Best Supporting Actress Hathaway, Best Actress Jennifer Lawrence, Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis and Best Picture winner Ben Affleck for Argo.

Relive the biggest, buzziest moments from the 2013 Oscars below.

1. Anne Hathaway's Red Carpet Dress Inspires "Nipple" Twitter

Anne Hathaway thankfully didn't have a wardrobe malfunction on the red carpet outside the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles for the Oscars. But the 30-year-old frontrunner for the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nevertheless caused immediate comment online for her sidebood-baring Prada gown. "It was the one that spoke to me," she said.

2. Seth MacFarlane Jokes About Rihanna, Chris Brown "Violence" in Opening Monologue

Yep, Seth MacFarlane went there. The first-time host, 39, was eager to push the envelope with his opening monologue. Recapping the year's honored films, the Family Guy creator discussed Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, and managed to invoke the music world's most controversial couple.

3. Jennifer Lawrence Falls on Steps as She Wins Best Actress Oscar 

And just like that, Jennifer Lawrence is immortalized -- goofily! -- in Oscar history. The 22-year-old star won the Best Actress Academy Award and suffered every actress' nightmare while ascending the stage: She face-planted! Tripping on her sizable frock, the blonde fell down on the steps, and was quickly helped up.

4. Ben Affleck Wins Best Picture Oscar for Argo, Thanks Wife Jennifer Garner: Marriage Is "Work, But It's the Best Work There Is"

Ben Affleck walked away from the 2013 Oscars with one heck of a consolation prize for his Best Director snub. The Argo filmmaker and his team captured the night's top award, beating out eight other nominees, including Lincoln and Silver Linings Playbook, for Best Picture.

Sunday night's Oscar Awards turned out to be one long evening of tributes to music in film, and no such night would have been complete without a nod to Tom Hooper's film adaptation of Broadway epic Les Miserables. The star-studded cast of the film descended upon the Oscars stage, to give a rousing ensemble performance of "One Day More."
