|Serena Williams, right, poses with Gabrielle Union and Tyler Perry at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday night.|
In case you were too busy taking a selfie with Ellen DeGeneres at the Oscars and missed out on sports, we've got you covered. Here's everything you missed this weekend.
It's rare for Serena Williams to attend an event and not have a chance at winning, but somehow the Academy disregarded her incredible work in the "Beats by Dre" commercial and left her with no shot at taking home a coveted Oscar on Sunday night. Not one to accept defeat, the top-ranked tennis player showed up to the Vanity Fair after-party looking to at least win the red carpet.

Mission accomplished. Somewhere out there, probably eating her own line of candy, Maria Sharapova is fuming she didn't get a chance to show off her style skills.
Fresh off their star turn at the Olympics, America's sweethearts, Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir, made their debuts as fashion analysts for NBC at the Academy Awards. You can expect to see them absolutely everywhere today as they share their impressive knowledge of all things glitter, starting with an appearance on Monday's "Today" show.

And just in case you're the one person who doesn't think the figure skating duo has officially made it, Weir was given the ultimate Hollywood honor by being parodied on "Saturday Night Live."
Much to the confusion of the Twittersphere, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was spotted on the Oscars red carpet.
Maybe he just heard the nominated title "Dallas Buyers Club" and assumed it had to be about him.
With all due respect to his mother and wife, no one was happier for Matthew McConaughey's Best Actor win than the Texas Longhorns community. And if you watched any part of the school's football season, you understand why they will gladly take a win where they can get it. All right, all right, all right.
Congrats to Matthew for winning an Oscar. He is the best. I'm so proud of my friend. It's long overdue. Enjoy you fantastic success- Mack Brown (@UT_MackBrown) March 3, 2014

Paula Creamer did not attend the Oscars on Sunday but instead sunk a 75-foot eagle putt on the second playoff hole at the HSBC Women's Champions to win her first LPGA title since 2010. You know, just the kind of putt every golfer dreams about in their wildest fantasies. No big deal or anything.
Her plethora of facial reactions after making the shot pretty much says it all.

On Friday night, Thomas More sophomore guard Sydney Moss, daughter of some dude named Randy, broke the Division III single-game scoring record with a whopping 63 points in the semifinals of the Presidents' Athletic Conference tournament.
Perhaps even more impressive, Moss found the time to thank seemingly every person who congratulated her on Twitter after "SportsCenter" mentioned her feat. On Sunday, Moss scored 29 points to lead her team to the conference title with an 80-58 win over Washington & Jefferson.
After leaping over the first row of courtside seats to save the ball from going out of bounds during the Chicago Bulls' 109-90 blowout win over the New York Knicks on Sunday, Jimmy Butler needed to find a way to get back onto the court. Hilarity, of course, ensues, marking the only moment of the game Knicks fans were likely able to enjoy.
