Best and Worst of the 2014 Academy Awards
Ups and downs on the telecast, as always
Best: Darlene Love
The representative singer for "20 Feet from Stardom" stepped to the mic to sing the words from gospel tune "His Eye Is On the Sparrow" after the film won Best Documentary Feature: "I sing because I'm happy." Despite a flubbed note, Love's exuberance and talent was apropos in the instance the film took the honor. The women featured in the film wouldn't be in such a position were it not for song, faith and tradition, and risk-taking. Love saw an opportunity to share her gifts, and took it in the best way she knew how.
