HOLLYWOOD, California — John Travolta sure knows how to be memorable at the Academy Awards.

Hot off last year’s “Adele Dazeem” fiasco — in which he introduced singer Idina Menzel as “Adele Dazeem” — he did it again at this year’s Oscar ceremony.

Menzel turned the tables on Travolta by introducing him by a made-up name. They hugged on stage and then Travolta awkwardly touched her face.

That’s not all. He surprised actress Scarlett Johansson with a kiss on the red carpet before the awards show. Johansson seemed taken aback by the move — and kept her hands at her side as he put his hand around her waist.
