The 9-year-old Beasts of the Southern Wild actress clutched a puppy purse on the red carpet, telling Ryan Seacrest she chose her adorably adult Armani dress because it was “sparkly and fluffy.”
The two times clips of Beasts were thrown on the monitor during the ceremony, she flexed her tiny muscles like her character in the “I’m the man” scene of her film and smiled a broad and innocent smile more infectious than bird flu.
During a live Tweet of the Oscars, satirical publication The Onion decided it would be funny to call her the c-word. Because… shock value?
Slightly less shocking: Jennifer Lawrence falling on her way up the stairs to accept her Best Actress statue, Seth MacFarlane’s boob song, and Anne Hathaway’s nipples.
Here are the winners you care about, at the 85th annual Academy Awards:
Best Picture: Argo. Best Actress: Jennifer Lawrence. Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis.
Best Documentary: Searching for Sugar Man. Best Original Song: “Skyfall,” Adele.
Best Animated Feature Film: Brave. Best Cinematography: Life of Pi.

[UPDATE] Onion CEO Steve Hannah has apologized for the Tweet, writing “Miss Wallis, you are young and talented and deserve better. All of us at The Onion are deeply sorry.”
