It's time for the 86th Annual Academy Awards! The red carpet has been rolled out, the ManiCam has been cloyingly placed in some corner and large swaths of the American populace are gathered around their television screens in order to watch beautiful well-dressed people looking very beautiful and well-dressed while Ryan Seacrest asks them inane questions about the weather.

Cate Blanchett is wearing a nude Armani gown covered in bead-and-sequin paillettes; it's not my favorite thing she's ever worn, but that's probably because she always looks absolutely perfect, which is a tough standard to abide by.
