How could it be that Mickey Rourke is the best-dressed man at the show? White suit, black vest, lots of accessories (more than the ladies). He could have used a little more tailoring (yes, I just typed that, but it's true). In any case: This, gentlemen, is how to not wear a tuxedo to an event.

Queen Latifah is with Ryan. She's performing, too? Sweet Beyoncé! How many production numbers will there be? There are only three song nominees.

I know what I've been saying about colors. But Anne Hathaway's dress is pretty incredible. More sequins, but these, unlike Miley Cyrus's, belong in a museum of marine biology, not in a bento box.
