2014 was one heck of a year.
There was no shortage of sad or shocking stories about celebs to rock the sports and entertainment industries. The video footage of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée in an elevator made us angry and sad. The strange story of the Kendra Wilkinson/Hank Baskett cheating scandal made us scratch our heads, and the recent Sony hack has left us a little bit afraid.
However, 2014 was also a year that celeb hijinx kept us rolling on the floor with laughter. Whether their actions were intentional or unintended missteps, we’re equally thankful for these hilarious moments.
1. John Travolta butchers Idina Menzel’s name at the Oscars

His pronunciation of “wickedly” isn’t helping him at all.
2. Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson present at the Emmys
Harrelson’s McConaughey impersonation is priceless.
3. Macaulay Culkin responds impeccably to death hoax

4. Behind the Tube: Making the #Kimmel YouTube Films
On a serious note, who doesn’t think the Hemsworth brothers are “both hot as f***ing hell”?
5. Ellen DeGeneres spoofs Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda”
And it’s perfection.
6. Waka Flocka Flame’s cough drop commercial
What exactly is your reason for needing the cough drops, there, Waka Flocka?

Though this one of Clinton might teeter on the edge of creepy.
8. White House forced to respond to Justin Bieber deportation requests
Some 100,000 people signed a petition asking that Bieber be banished from the United States forever. That’s really saying something.

File this under adorably hilarious. They really are the bromance of the century.
10. Paris Hilton comes alive with “Come Alive”
File this under hilariously bad. Though it could possibly be the best thing to hit the internet since “Bound 2.”
11. Mike Tyson loses his s*** during a live interview
Lesson learned: Don’t poke the bear.
12. Timbaland reacts to Lifetime’s Aaliyah biopic
He wasn’t the only one perturbed by the flick! The movie sparked some pretty hilarious memes, too.
13. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul in Barely Legal Pawn
It’s worth watching for the chest bump alone!
14. Jimmy Fallon and Taylor Swift get nerdy for Ew! skit
Fallon sure makes for a hot blonde.

Before the whole Interview disaster really started to unfold, Rogen and Franco were Naked and Afraid.
16. President Obama disses James Franco

You probably haven’t forgotten about this one yet, but it’s too hilarious not to include. Silver lining: Joe Flacco was more than willing to welcome Franco into the Flacco flock.
