When Terrence Howard took the stage during the 2015 Oscars, he had one job and one job only. That is, to present three of the nominees for Best Picture: Whiplash, The Imitation Game, and Selma. His stint on stage was pretty much a train wreck that included flubbed lines and awkward displays of emotion. We wondered what was up with Mr. Howard — until now.
