Aussie actors miss out on Oscars, but still outshine winners

HOLLYWOOD'S biggest night for movies, the Oscars, was held this week and despite the lack of major surprises, there were a few moments that brightened the dull red carpet and awards ceremony.

The red carpet fashion was disappointing, with Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Lawrence wearing gowns that did not flatter their body types.

Anne Hathaway and Heidi Klum revealed more than what was appropriate for the stylish evening by exposing their breasts in different ways.

Adele opted for her signature black dress rather than being more adventurous with her style, and Halle Berry was too adventurous with her stiff, robotic and futuristic-looking gown.

But red carpet favourites Charlize Theron and Jessica Chastain delivered elegance and class.

Australian actors Hugh Jackman, Naomi Watts and Jacki Weaver missed out on Oscars this year, but have proven to be outstanding nonetheless.

When Jennifer Lawrence slipped and fell as she was going up to accept her Best Actress award, Hugh Jackman rushed to help her out.

This chivalrous act did not go unnoticed and showed how much of a class act and real gentleman he is.

Naomi Watts' Oscar gown was one of the evening's best and she showed you don't need an Oscar to be a winner.

Jacki Weaver's spot-on Philadelphia accent in Silver Linings Playbook also needs to be commended and was likely a reason for her Oscar recognition.

The night's top winners of the golden statue were Ben Affleck for Argo, Daniel-Day Lewis for Lincoln, Christoph Waltz for Django Unchained and Anne Hathaway for Les Miserables.

Oscars host and creator of Family Guy Seth Macfarlane is known for his controversial, offensive and vulgar humour.

But it was his musical number during the monologue that stood out as the evening's top moment.

Without the help of Channing Tatum and Charlize Theron though, it may not have been as entertaining.
