We were live on the red carpet at last night's Oscars, where Ang Lee talked about his nerves, Helen Hunt made a confession about her dress, and we learned about Channing Tatum's Oscar practice partner.

For her Academy Awards appearance, Helen Hunt went with a navy strapless gown by H&M. Yes, you read correctly. In her H&M dress, designed as part of the mass retailer's global clothing recycling initiative, the actress proved that you need not go with high-end luxury to look fabulous on the red carpet. Helen completed her ensemble with a multistrand silver necklace, sparkly bangles, and a navy box clutch. How do you feel about this?

Helen Hunt spoke to us about her Oscar-nominated film The Sessions this afternoon outside Hollywood & Highland. Decked out in a blue dress that was surprisingly from H&M, Helen looked amazing. She chatted with us about her interesting choice, which has an eco twist!
Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom showed PDA at Global Green's pre-Oscars party in LA last night. The couple giggled and smiled as they walked the green carpet together, and Miranda, in a Peter Pilotto dress, even grabbed her husband's bum at one point in front of the cameras. The loving didn't stop once Miranda and Orlando got inside the event. They cuddled in their seats as they watched Willie Nelson perform for an audience that also included Helen Hunt and Sophia Bush.
Miranda and Orlando are big supporters of Global Green, even attending a climate change rally Sunday for the organization. Of course, the week hasn't only been about charity work for the couple — over the weekend, Miranda wore a black bikini to join Orlando and their son, Flynn, at the beach.
Best actress nominee Helen Hunt stopped by the press room at today's Oscars Luncheon, and she chatted warmly about her film The Sessions, as well as the woman she portrays, Cheryl Cohen-Greene. She shared what it is she likes about the real-life woman so much and the sweet compliment she got from her after shooting the movie.
On the reaction to her film The Sessions: "I find that this movie makes for interesting conversation, and not for all the obvious naked reasons. Once people have seen it, they go up to me and go like this [puts her hands on heart]."
On what she likes about Cheryl Cohen-Greene: "Other than my daughter, who is 8 and radiating that kind of positivity, I've never met someone [like her]. . . . It's the lack of weirdness and the pure enthusiasm that she had. I feel like I got some of it. I wish I had even gone further."
On Cohen-Greene's reaction to Hunt playing her: "She wrote me a note when the movie was done, saying, 'Thank you for understanding my intentions with Mark.'"
Helen Hunt decided to show off her décolletage in a platinum beaded mermaid gown by Romona Keveza. As if her dress wasn't statement enough, the actress added even more dazzle via sparkly accessories: a diamond choker, drop earrings, stacked bangles, and a beaded clutch, to be exact. Without getting blinded by all the shine, take in Helen's head-to-toe look, then vote on whether or not you approve.

Helen Hunt hit the Critics' Choice Awards red carpet after receiving some good news earlier today: she's been nominated for an Oscar for The Sessions! She told us that the pressure is on her now to represent the movie after co-star John Hawkes was surprisingly snubbed for his performance. Hear as she talks about how his omission was "not the best part" of her morning, and why she feels his role was way more challenging than her onscreen nudity.
The Sessions' Helen Hunt looked every bit the lady in red in a formfitting Philip Armstrong dress. Yes, it was perfectly body-skimming, and yes, it featured sexy, sheer lace insets that proved silhouette-sculpting . . . but it was Helen's demure approach to the bolder gown choice that made this look so compelling. Apart from the dress's scene-stealing hue, Helen kept things sleek and glamorous. Her hair was in loose waves, and her makeup was natural — and as for her accessories? Her gold drop earrings, gold cuff, and round gold clutch polished off the look. It's certainly an ensemble befitting a Oscar nominee, do you agree?

The 24th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival drew boldfaced Hollywood names on Saturday night. Stars including Ben Affleck, Naomi Watts, and Bradley Cooper were honored for their onscreen work, while Tom Hanks, Eddie Redmayne, Diane Lane, and other celebs presented the evening's awards. We were on the red carpet and inside for the star-studded dinner, where several of the awardees shared moving, funny, and heartfelt speeches. Naomi, who accepted the evening's Desert Palm Achievement Award for an actress from her The Impossible costar Tom Holland, thanked her longtime partner, Liev Schreiber, for inspiring her. She also expressed gratitude for their two young sons, Sasha and Kai, for "breathing life into me."
Birthday boy Bradley Cooper — who turned 38 yesterday — gave a short and humble speech when accepting the corresponding award for actor for his work in Silver Linings Playbook. It was one of newly single Bradley Cooper's first nights out since splitting from Zoe Saldana. Bradley couldn't escape host Mary Hart, who led the audience in a round of "Happy Birthday" in his honor before he left the stage. As Ben Affleck and his Argo cast closed the show, taking home the ensemble performance award, Ben asked Mary if she'd prompt the crowd to sing "Happy Birthday" for him, as well. "When's your birthday?" Mary asked. Ben replied, "August."
