Jennifer Aniston Oscars

Jennifer Aniston couldn’t contain herself when Vince Vaughn walked into the Vanity Fair party at Morton’s. As soon as she saw him, she squealed, "Baby!" But then someone stepped on her dress, so she didn’t make it into his arms right away. But when they embraced, they really embraced. "It was a full-on kiss on the lips," a Vanity Fair-goer says." She was just so excited to see him. She was so excited she even forgot her clutch on her table." Fortunately, someone saw it and handed it to over. 

Los Angeles, California :: Although they entered the Vanity Fair Oscars party solo, Jennifer Aniston, 37, and Vince Vaughn, 35, were inseparable once inside Morton’s Restaurant. Aniston giggled the night away as she kept her hand planted on his leg. Afterwards, Vaughniston left through a side alley to avoid photographers and reporters. 

Ben Stiller Oscars

One of two laugh out loud Oscars moments last night had comedian Ben Stiller, 40, present the award for Best Achievement in Visual Effects.  More pictures and the video after the jump.  It’s hilarious!  Here’s the transcript I typed up –

Tonight, I am presenting the award for excellence in visual effects.  Or should I say, thanks to the miracle of green screen technology, my disembodied head is.  Those of you in the audience, take a look at the monitors next to the stage and you’ll see what over a billion viewers worldwide are ogling at right now.  Freaky, isn’t it?  You might even say that since the early days of cinema, visual effects have come full [Turns around] circle.  This is blowing Spielberg’s mind. [Spielberg shakes head no and mouths "No it's not"]  In a moment, even my head will disappear and for the first time in Oscar history, an Academy Award will be presented… by no one.  [Puts green mask over head] Don’t worry, I’m still here.  [Moves to the left] Or am I here?  And the nominees are… [Makes envelope 'fly' around] Envelope, by the power of movie magic, open yourself.  And the Oscar goes to… King Kong.

Will Ferrell Oscars

The other funny moment of the night had comedians ex-SNL cast member Will Ferrell, 38, and The Office‘s Steve Carell, 42, present the award for Best Achievement in Makeup. Both had garishly applied pancake make-up… too much foundation and blush… Carell‘s fake eyelashes were the best. Ferrell and Carell presented the award Howard Berger and Tami Lane for The Chronicles of Narnia.  More pictures in the gallery!
