Oscars 2015: John Travolta, a.k.a. Glom Gazingo, gets some face time

Standard

One year after hilariously butchering
Idina Menzel’s name as “Adele Dazeem,” John Travolta returned to the
Academy Awards on Sunday to redeem himself and to get a taste of his own
medicine. But if the two-time Oscar nominee managed to nail his
pronunciation obligations this time around, his make-good wasn’t without
its own awkward moment.

The
gag began with Menzel stepping to the microphone to introduce her
co-presenter for best original song: “Ladies and gentlemen, please
welcome to the stage my very dear friend, Glom Gazingo.”

A
smiling Travolta appeared, gold envelope in hand, and the two embraced.
“I deserve that,” Travolta said with a smile. “But you, my darling, my
beautiful, my wickedly talented Idina Menzel.”

“You got it!” she
cheered, then jokingly added, “It’s not like [‘Adele Dazeem’] is going
to follow me around for the rest of my life or anything.”

“Yeah, tell me about it,” Travolta deadpanned.

It
was a fun, playful exchange, though one made slightly weird by Travolta
caressing Menzel’s face for a few seconds too long. Menzel, unflappable
as she was last year, smiled through it and graciously — or
sardonically — offered to handle presenting duties. (John Legend and
Common won for “Glory.”)

Travolta didn’t escape getting
needled again, however. During host Neil Patrick Harris’ end-of-show
magic trick, he quipped, “John Travolta will be back next year to
apologize to Idina for all the face touching.”
