Angelina Jolie's right leg steals the show

The 2012 Oscars was short on scandal and yet still long on body parts: Aside from Jennifer Lopez's (perhaps) imaginary wardrobe malfunction, there was also the matter of Angelina Jolie's leg. Her right one, to be exact.

On the red carpet Jolie consistently hit her pose, making sure that her high-heeled limb was never lost in the voluminous black gown she wore - which was helped by the fact that the gown had a thigh-high slit.

The actress maintained her determination on stage as well, ensuring that she was showing plenty of leg while presenting during the Oscars show.

Jennifer Lopez's stylist: What nip slip?

We remember Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz showing off their (clothed) backsides while presenting at the Oscars on Sunday, but to hear the Internet tell it, Lopez also showed us a bit more than that.

The actress/singer/"Idol" judge looked stunning in a form-fitting Zuhair Murad gown with a cleavage-baring neckline. But some have said that at one point, it looked like one of her cups was running over, giving viewers at home a glimpse of a nip slip.

And yet, according to Lopez's stylist Mariel Haenn, those who saw it must've been imagining things.

The 84th Academy Awards: The live blog

Tonight's the big night for Hollywood's finest, as we get ready to honor the year's top performances at the 84th Academy Awards.

Many of the looks on the red carpet were phenomenal, and we can only hope that the Oscars show will be just as entertaining. We're not too worried, though, as the Academy has an old pro up at bat: None other than Billy Crystal.

Producer Brian Grazer told CNN ahead of tonight's ceremony that the theme for the evening is comedy, and that we can expect Crystal to play a big part in that, with a little assistance from stars like Tina Fey, the cast of "Bridesmaids," Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis. "We have every star that you’re gonna want to see on this show," Grazer promised.

Not only that, but a few awards will be handed out too, we hear. Have your Oscars ballots ready? Because here we go!

'Dictator' drama on Oscars red carpet

Although the Academy initially said they weren't interested in having actor Sacha Baron Cohen attend the Oscars as his character from his upcoming film "The Dictator," Cohen's General Aladeen nonetheless made an entrance to the event on Sunday.

It wasn't unexpected, as producer Brian Grazer told "Extra" that the Oscars would be "thrilled" to have Cohen dressed as the  heavily bearded, comical character at the ceremony.

But perhaps the Academy wasn't expecting the actor would bring along props.

Viola Davis: I've really stepped into who I am

As an actor, there are projects that are simply that, and then there are projects that come with a lesson attached - and Viola Davis says this year's best picture nominee "The Help" has been the latter for her.

Davis, who is also up for the best actress Oscar as well, looked stunning in a green gown and cropped hairstyle on the Oscars red carpet. Many have taken note of Davis' regal, natural 'do, and she says that both her husband and her Oscar-nominated role have helped her to become very confident in who she is.

"My husband said, 'Be who you are,'" Davis said of the decision to rock her natural hair. "Step into who you are. [And] I really have. I felt like this project forced me to step into who I was, the choice of playing a maid in 1963 with a broken dialect, and having to defend my choice...You’ve gotta be who you are and be very confident and bold in who you are."
