As Kristen Wiig famously declared in "Bridesmaids," Hollywood was "ready to parrrtayyy" following the Oscars last night.
After all the business of handing out awards was out of the way, the real night began. Didn't see your favorite stars on the red carpet for the ceremony? No big! They were probably hanging out with Elton John or at the Vanity Fair bash.
Oh, and they were having a darn good time. See for yourself in our 2012 Oscars Party Pics gallery.
How does Jimmy Kimmel get all these famous-types to goof around in his movie club every year?
However the host of ABC's "JKL: Jimmy Kimmel Live" is able to pull off his annual post-Oscars parodies, we're glad he does them, 'cause they just keep getting better. And Kimmel has outdone himself this year with the trailer to the epic to end all epics, "Movie: The Movie." Get More »
The Academy has been thoroughly thanked for another year.
Billy Crystal ran a good-looking show at the 84th Annual Academy Awards, a ceremony that featured a moving and tearful acceptance speech from Octavia Spencer, a classy and distinguished one from Christopher Plummer, an impromptu backside shot from Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz, a vodka shot from Rose Byrne and Melissa McCarthy at the mention of the name "Scorsese" and several big wins for "The Artist."
Re-live the magic with our gallery of the 2012 Oscars show.
Hollywood might be the land of dreams, but the Oscars are the night of fashion — and in an industry in which everyone's a critic, it comes as no surprise that we've got a few opinions on some of the more (ahem) questionable choices of the night.
We know it may be hard to imagine that some of the most stunning people on the planet, clad in some of the world's most coveted labels, could manage to look anything less than perfect, but a handful of stars who walked this carpet have proven that it's possible. Trust us.
So how does one land on our worst dressed list for the Academy Awards? While there's no surefire way, there are a few cardinal sins to avoid, including (but not limited to) long sleeves, dressing inappropriately for one's age, and, last but not least, playing it way too safe. Check out the gallery to get up close and personal with these fashion misses — and take notes in case you ever find yourself at Tinseltown's biggest night. (Hey, it could happen!)
Hollywood's biggest night is finally here, bringing with it life-changing moments, tear-filled speeches and, of course, heart-pounding fashions. But in a sea of the world's most beautiful people, clad in the world's most breathtaking gowns, how does a girl stand out?
This year the answer is simple: drama, drama, oh, and a little more drama. This was not the time for black. This was not the time to play it safe. This was the time to dress like it's the Oscars. Because it is the Oscars. (Just in case you forgot.)
From glittering sequins and plunging necklines, to vibrant colors and even some sizzling white, Tinseltown's golden girls brought out the big guns to remind us just what makes movie-land grand. And while not everyone can take home that coveted little bald man (sigh), one fact is certain: every single lady who nabbed a spot on this best-dressed list is a clear winner in our eyes.
Sacha Baron Cohen has been making headlines all week over his attendance at the Oscars, but that tempest in a teapot pales in comparison to the controversy he stirred up this evening when he took on Hollywood's most powerful figure:
As promised, Cohen appeared as Admiral General Shabazz Aladeen, the fictitious lead character of his new comedy "The Dictator." During a red carpet interview, he shocked fans by dumping what he claimed were the ashes of deceased North Korean leader Kim Jong Il on Seacrest.
"Anything can happen, and it just did, all over my lapel," said Seacrest, getting the last word as always.
Note to Cohen: Nobody dictates to Ryan Seacrest.
George and Brangelina and Emma Stone, oh my!
The biggest A-listers and some of the cutest celebrity couples — we're lookin' at you Kermit and Miss Piggy — hit the red carpet at the 2012 Academy Awards tonight and, well, we're a little starstruck.
And, of course, they all looked breathtaking. See for yourself in our jam-packed red carpet gallery.
Despite all the lip service about comedic provocateur Sacha Baron Cohen being "banned" from this Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony, it came out later that his tickets hadn't been pulled but a spokesperson confirmed that the board was "waiting to hear what he's going to do."
Boy, has he done something now.
Flanked by armed guards in the guise of new character Admiral General Alladeen, he's issued a video statement direct from his palace in the (fictional) Republic of Wadiya that's bound to stir up controversy… and maybe interest in new movie "The Dictator?" Get More »
Some of the Oscar noms for Best Picture have some of us scratching our heads ("War Horse"… really?), which is why we're thrilled that some person with too much time on their hands genius put together infographics to help explain these critics' darlings.
From pie charts about what "The Descendants"' George Clooney looks like in a Hawaiian shirt (with a segment marked as a "Trader Joe's cashier"), to how the powers-that-be make "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close"'s Sandra Bullock seem Jewish (frizzy hair dominates), to a bar graph revealing all the places "The Artist" thinks it's OK to bring your dog (suicide den included!), these visual aids prove as informative as they are inspired.

UPDATE: Contrary to an earlier online report, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences hasn't "banned" Sacha Baron Cohen from attending the Oscars in anticipation of the actor making an appearance on the red carpet as "The Dictator," but the organization has made it clear that such publicity stunt shenanigans aren't welcome.
"We haven't banned him," an Academy spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter. "We're just waiting to hear what he's going to do."
Deadline first reported that the "Hugo" star had been banned from attending the ceremony for fear that he would be using the red carpet as a platform to promote his upcoming comedy about a crass totalitarian leader hellbent on keeping democracy out of his country. Get More »
