An Oscars overview: and the Ailee goes to...

...Cate Blanchett for Best Dressed Female.

...Leonardo DiCaprio for Best Dressed Male (this oughtta put me in Yang's good graces :p).

...Will Smith, Jaden Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith for Best Dressed Family.

...Mark Wahlberg and his unidentified date for Best Dressed Couple.

...Djimon Hounsou for the Samuel L. Jackson Lookalike Award.

...Jack Nicholson for Best Haircut.

...George Clooney for Most Adorable Presenter. Sorry, Abigail Breslin and Jaden Smith. Delicious trumps precious.

...Will Ferrell, Jack Black and John C. Reilly for Most Hilarious Presenters AND Best Musical Performance of the show. Favorite part: after Will and Jack called out Leo DiCaprio and Ryan Gosling, Will looked for Mark Wahlberg in the audience and went, "I won't mess with you, you're actually kind of badass". :p

...Alan Arkin for Best Steal. =D

...Leo DiCaprio, Will Smith, and Ryan Gosling for the Sportsmanship Award. The three Best Actor also-rans stood up to applaud Forest Whitaker as he went up on stage to accept the Oscar (I didn't see if Peter O'Toole got to his feet, but then again, septuagenarians can be exempted).

...Whitaker's wife Keisha for Most Emotional Proud Spouse.

...Melissa Etheridge for Biggest Suprise Win, stealing Best Original Song from not one, not two, but THREE Dreamgirls songs. And right after Beyonce, J.Hud and Anika Noni Rose belted their lungs out performing said three songs. Ouch. Ellen DeGeneres for Best Gag of the Evening, when she cheekily asked Steven Spielberg to take a photo of her with Clint Eastwood, and even asked for a retake because the sides weren't even.

...Thelma Schoonmaker for Best Acceptance Speech. Thelma who? She was the silver-haired, matronly woman who won the Film Editing Oscar for The Departed. She delivered a very sincere, straightforward speech that included profuse-without-being-gushy thanks to a visibly moved Martin Scorsese.

...Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg for Most Memorable Moment. After exchanging funny repartee, the three iconic filmmakers presented the Directing Oscar to their buddy Marty Scorsese. Very fitting indeed.

Ellen Degeneres was so funny!! I laughed so hard when she pretended it was hot and fanned herself with the screenplay she wanted to show Scorsese!

Ah, but Clint Eastwood one-upped Ellen when he asked her how come Scorsese got a script and he didn't. ;p Unexpected comedy from Dirty Harry, niiice. And unscripted too. :)

My best dressed male award actually goes to Clive Owen. Loved the suit. Or I might just be biased because he's Clive Owen. :D

When it comes to Clive Owen, you won't get any arguments from me. ;p

When I saw the rerun on Star Movies last night, I decided that Ken Watanabe deserves to be among the Best Dressed list too. That tux of his with the Oriental buttons was fabulous. =D
