Men of the Oscars

(Hitting even more snags finding save-able pictures of the men, so we're gonna have to link it up a lot on this one.)

Mickey Rourke just straight up gives me the creeps, and this ensemble didn't do anything to dissuade me from that view.

And yet, I have to give him some props for not going the traditional tuxedo route. He just can't help but be skeezy Mickey Rourke, I guess, so kudos to him for keepin' it real. 

I love me some Robert Downey, Jr., and I'm also a big fan of the non-bowtie tux.  

Confidential to Phillip Seymour Hoffman:  You are one of the best actors of our generation, no question.  That is no excuse to leave the house with that ugly box on your head.

Is it just me or did Anthony Hopkins lose a bunch of weight?  Props to him for going the non-bowtie route - makes him look modern and hip, although his beautiful wife helps a little, too.

Zac Efron

I can't decide how I feel about Efron in general, but he definitely looked dapper (even if his presence there was questionable).  I'd probably make out with him. (Is that saying much?) 

John Legend = one of the best dressed men and his girlfriend is not too shabby either.

Yeah, yeah, Brad Pitt in a tux. Snooze. Not feelin' the goatee, Brad. Not at all.  

As he admitted in his acceptance speech, he sometimes makes it difficult to like him, but I happen to love Sean Penn, politics and all.  He rocked an all-black look that was slightly unique and pretty hot.

Edward Cullen Robert Pattinson

Did he look a little high? Maybe.  Like he was still in Twilight makeup?  A little.  Did he still make women ages 8 to 58 swoon?  Absolutely.

2 tips left at the bar:

Edward Cullen always looks a little high.

PSH's head box, ick!

Hey, I thought Sean Penn and RWP had split up?? What is the scoop on this one.

In general, the men have it pretty easy, but some manage to either screw it up, and others manage to take the black tie look to a new level of hot.

Hmm. I'm not sure about the Penns. I vaguely remember them breaking up and reconciling, but I could be fabricating that memory.

I feel badly for the men - It's pretty easy to look the part, but somewhat difficult to make the look your own. Veer even a little off course and it's a HUGE risk. (i.e. PSH's head box. I get the idea - his hair looks a mess under there, so he needed to hide it, but um, NO.)
