Fashion always takes center stage on Oscar Night, providing an extra measure of delight to couture aficionados watching at home. But considering what a snooze-fest the actual Oscar telecast proved to be this year, the gorgeous gowns on Hollywood's leading ladies ended up being better than the main event. Here, we highlight some of our favorites as well as a few choices that were obviously created to bait the Fashion Police. Among the notable trends we enjoyed were the frequent appearance of bold colors, sparkle provided by elaborate beading and sequins as opposed to jewels, and several celebrations of vintage couture style.

It's difficult to believe that after 10 years, we won't get to see the characters of Harry Potter embarking on new adventures on the big screen anymore; frankly, we're having a hard time letting go.

Here are some ideas/fantasies we've pondered for letting the series live on through character spin-off movies or shows, whether they be prequels, re-imaginings, or parallel universes. Some are fanciful, some might actually work - we'll let you decide which is which.

Born in Australia, Chris Hemsworth was a TV star in his home country before landing the small but pivotal role as the father of Captain James T. Kirk in the reboot of Star Trek. With less than five minutes on the screen, he went from just another handsome actor to a superhero -- literally -- by landing the lead role in Thor. His solid screen presence, muscular build, and most surprisingly, mischevious sense of humor, propelled him to the front of the crowd of young leading men sought after by Hollywood.
