Elizabeth Banks nearly fell on stage at the Oscars, but managed to stay upright.

Darn those exquisite gowns!

Elizabeth Banks was on the stage to present the award for Best Visual Effects. As Elizabeth made her way onto the stage, she could be seen holding one side of her Vivienne Westwood bespoke gown with an envelope in the other hand.

Unfortunately, just before making it to the center of the stage, she stumbled on the fabric of the dress and held out her hands to keep her balance. After, she slowly waddled to the mic to prevent the worst from happening.

Interestingly, Page Six reports that after Elizabeth presented the award, she returned backstage and quickly took off her heels.

Most folks are happy that Elizabeth is OK, but they're also thankful that their stumbles weren't caught in 4K.

Gaga immediately sprung into action to help the man off the floor and he graciously thanked her. As she made her way into Dolby Theater, a voice can be heard saying “that was nice of you.”

However, since many actors make it a point to don elaborate gowns, it can be easy for anyone to take a tumble. That said, many actors should consider consulting with their styling teams before wearing specific gowns that are made with tons of fabric or have a floor-length construction that can restrict movement.
