The excruciating moment Jason Momoa is asked to 'do a haka move' at Oscars

Ms Graham was stationed on the red carpet, interviewing celebrities as they arrived when the cringe-worthy interaction occurred.

The model demanded Haiwaiian-born Jason Momoa perform a "haka move" for her. She then vaguely tries to demonstrate what she means, in case the indigenous man was unclear on her request.

Her demonstration was a strange little hop from foot to foot, with a half hunch.

It was awkward.

Oscars introduce new award for outstanding popular film

It's among three changes which were approved on Tuesday by the Academy's board of governors.

It means films which are popular with the public but less so with critics will be more likely to win an Oscar.

Superhero films such as Black Panther are among those which could now stand a much better chance of being recognised during awards season.

It is unclear, however, whether the change will come into effect in time for the next Oscars ceremony in February.

Oscar mishap accountants 'will never return' to ceremony

Cheryl Boone Isaacs said that the relationship with the accountancy firm PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) was also under review.

Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz were responsible for Sunday's mishap.

Oscars: Iranian winner Asghar Farhadi blasts Trump travel ban

Farhadi boycotted the ceremony, with two Iranian-Americans representing him.

"Dividing the world into the US and 'our enemies' categories creates fear," his acceptance statement read.

US courts have blocked the travel ban but the Trump administration is preparing a new executive order.

The original ban temporarily prohibited the entry of immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries.

One of those chosen by Farhadi to represent him, Iranian-born US engineer and astronaut Anousheh Ansari, read out his acceptance statement.

Oscars: Has anything really changed since #OscarsSoWhite?

Seven of the 20 stars up for acting awards at Sunday's Oscars are not white, and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which organises the awards, has taken steps to broaden its pool of voters.

There may be more visibility for black actors and stories - but the diversity debate has also highlighted problems with how Asian, Latin and Native Americans are represented.

Oscars: Meryl Streep vents fury at Karl Lagerfeld in dress row

Chanel's creative director accused Streep of rejecting one of his dresses because she found a different designer who was willing to pay her.

He has since said he "misunderstood" - but that has not calmed Streep's ire.

"I do not take this lightly, and Mr Lagerfeld's generic 'statement' of regret for this 'controversy' was not an apology," she said.
