  • Jennifer Lawrence’s golden moment becomes Oscar oops

    Maybe Jennifer Lawrence didn't get that sandwich in time.

    The actress, who joked on the red carpet that she hadn't eaten all day, wound up tripping on the stairs on her way to accept her Oscar for Best Actress for "Silver Linings Playbook."

    But she managed to go on with the show. As she gripped her Oscar she told the crowd standing in support, "You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell and that’s really embarrassing. But thank you."

    [ Photos: The best and worst red carpet looks ]

    The down-to-earth actress explained back stage what it was like when she hit the ground. "Was that on purpose? Absolutely! What happened? What do you mean what happened — look at my dress! I tried to walk up stairs in this dress, that's what happened. I tried to walk upstairs and stepped on the fabric. They waxed the stairs. What was going through my mind? A bad word that I can't say that starts with F."

  • Anne Hathaway: Oscar winner … and fembot?!

    As expected, Anne Hathaway took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “Les Miserables.” But (yet again) her wardrobe seemed to upstage her.

    The hashtag “les nipperables” quickly erupted on Twitter in a nod to the A-lister’s other two stars that stole the limelight.

    The pink Prada dress, which the actress described on the red carpet as “business in front, party in the back,” had plenty going on in front.

    Let’s just say, the perky star seemed cold on stage as she clutched her gold statuette. Perez Hilton knew who to blame, tweeting, “Anne Hathaway's stylist should be fired for not forcing her to wear pasties!”

    Hmm… We've seen this somewhere before.

    Austin Powers references aside, a Twitter debate broke out on whether the dress or Anne’s anatomy was to blame for the wardrobe malfunction.

    Tzuri Kahlon‏wrote, “Are my eyes tricking me or can I really Anne Hathaway's nipples through her dress “

    While Sheri Lynch ‏queried, Anne Hathaway - dress darts? Nipples? Nipple

    Dressed in - what else? - a sequined gold dress, Bassey belted out "Goldfinger" for the Oscars.
