WATCH: Celebrities Had a Ball Buying $65,000 Worth of Girl Scout Cookies at the Oscars
Forget Leonardo DiCaprio’s first-ever Oscar — the highlight of last night’s Academy Awards was Chris Rock’s daughter and her troop selling Girl Scout cookies to the Hollywood audience, who ponied up $65,000 throughout the course of the night.
“I want you to reach into your millionaire pockets and buy some of my daughters’ Girl Scout cookies,” Rock said.
Kate Winslet, Mindy Kaling, and Michael Keaton seemed pretty excited by the turn of events:

Even the Vice President of the United States wanted in on the Thin Mint action. Chris Rock revealed that Joe Biden slipped him a $20 backstage in exchange for some cookies.

Deadspin.com actually got its hands on some unaired footage of celebrities going nuts over cookies. In the video, you can see Steve Carell forking over some cash for Samoas as the girls walked up and down the aisles to sell their irresistible wares. :
