Eddie Redmayne's Hair

The Les Misérables hunk stepped out with a bizarre hairdo. It did nothing to detract from his gorgeousness, but it did make for some good jokes on Twitter.

Jennifer Lawrence Messes With the Mani Cam

Jennifer Lawrence gave one of her characteristically awesome interviews. Complaining about how she hasn't had time to eat and the show's so long.

"Is there food here?" Jennifer Lawrence for president.

Then she yelled into E!'s terrifying Mani Cam to Emma Stone: "Your ass is mine, Stone." The Mani Cam however missed it, being apparently only reserved for hands.

The E! mani-cam just missed what will likely be its best shot of the night. The cord came out just before J. Lawrence stuck her face in it.

Anne Hathaway Prompts Nip-Slip Question

Anne Hathaway's Prada dress—which looked to some like an apron and which she chose apparently three hours before she arrived—prompted some, well, propriety questions.

Can we actually see Anne's actual nipple?? #PeopleOscars

— Go Fug Yourself (@fuggirls) February 25, 2013

I think you can actually see the outline of Anne Hathaway's areolae, which is fine if that's what she was going for, but. #Oscars

However, the conclusion is that those were actually fabric folds after all.

LADIES, now, you KNOW those things are not nipples. they are fabric folds. come on

She and Seacrest also talked about what games they like. He likes Farkle, she likes Crimes Against Humanity
