Last night, the Academy Awards were, as they always are, kinda boring, and definitely too long. Still, that didn't stop us from picking out stars to pick on, and falling in love with Sophia Loren.

I mostly just watched E!'s red carpet coverage, but I had the TV Guide channel on my picture in picture, and was intermittently terrorized by phantom asshole pains when faced with the reminder of my occasional struggles with hemorrhoids.

Ryan Seacrest was slightly easier to look at, even though he was wearing more makeup than Jay Manuel. His hands are a totally different color than his face.

Hugh Jackman has some skin tone issues as well. Too much time in the Outback, mate. Or the spray tan booth. Whichevs.

Moving on from skin, let's talk hair. Alicia Keys' wig looked like a wig, much like that of Devyn's from The Real World: Brooklyn.

Those girls need to get in touch with Saaphyri. She makes and sells lace fronts.

And that reminds me: BOOBS! The boobs on this baby doll prop made me uncomfortable.

But not as uncomfortable as Sex and the Titty.

As for discomfort, Goldie had her birds on a wire.

As well as this dancer's "nude" bra, which perhaps made me understand the term "Jai Ho" a little better.

No discussion about boobs would be complete without mentioning Philip Seymour Hoffman's hat.

The actual setup of the stage was nice, despite the fact that it was flanked by streamers one would expect to see hanging in the doorways at a bar mitzvah.

I liked how the audience was extremely close to the stage.

But I have a feeling that Jennifer Aniston didn't.

She seemed to be happy that Brad Pitt didn't win "Best Actor" though.

The thing about Heath Ledger winning "Best Supporting Actor" is that when everyone started to cry, you could really tell who's had Botox and who hasn't.

And this one couldn't move her forehead if her career depended on it, which, eventually, it will.

Part of Penelope Cruz's acceptance speech was in Spanish. Sadly, it didn't involve the phrase, "in another life when we are both cats."

Real translation via Radar:

All of the loyal people of Spain are now sharing this moment with me and feel that this is theirs also. I dedicate it to them. To all of the actors of my country, many thanks!

I loved the look on everyone's faces during the acceptance speech for "Best Foreign Language Film," which started off as, "I…am…here…because of…films."

Eh, I don't know that Jolie has Botox. She might, or that may just not have been the most emotional moment they captured her in. She seems to express more with her mouth than her brows. I'm not invested either way, it just seems like a stretch.

As much as I don't like a lot of over-the-top surgeries that seem to go overboard at Award's season...I'm kind of uncomfortable with the tone of the snark. It makes me sad that people end up looking nothing like themselves out of this need to not look like they're aging. This fear of aging thing we do, especially to women, needs to stop. It's okay not to look 20 when you're 60. It really is.
