The Oscars: Hits and misses

What did you make of last night's Oscars telecast? Sure, it was better than last year's debacle co-hosted by James Franco and Anne Hathaway. But, seriously, is it just me or is the self-congratulatory tone of this event escalating each and every year?

Let's take a look at last night's hits and misses:

Hit: Tom Hanks looked great. His tuxedo offered up a unique look which suited him and the goatee made Hanks look younger.

Miss: Let's start with Angelina Jolie. Seriously, the leg looked great but the rest of the body--not so much. Eat a meal, Angie! I mean, those arms look like toothpicks.

Hit: Penelope Cruz had the dress of the night.

Miss: What was with so many women wearing pale-toned dresses?

Hit: Sadly, the montage of stills and film of those who passed away in 2011 was a highlight.

Miss: Sacha Baron Cohen successfully found a way to get on the red carpet as The Dictator and then found a way to spill the fake ashes of Kim Jong Il on Ryan Seacrest. No matter what you think of Seacrest, it was a bush league moment.

Hit: Billy Crystal.

Miss: Viola Davis. Not only did Davis look totally different given the new 'do and makeup job but she also missed out in the Best Actress category.

Hit: Cameron Diaz.

Miss: The "nip slip." Jennifer Lopez's "down to there" gown offered up what appeared to be a peek of "that" area on her left breast.

Hit: Emma Stone was fun as a presenter along with Ben Stiller who tried to act the part of experienced, veteran Oscar-goer.

Miss: Sean Young, who got busted outside of the Governor's Ball for allegedly duking it out with a security guard.

Hit: George Clooney. Does anyone look more "old Hollywood," in a good way, than Clooney?
