What Helen Mirren Didn't Have on Under Her Dress

Those rumors that Helen Mirren went commando at the Academy Awards are false – well, sort of. While chatting on The Oprah Winfrey show, the Best Actress winner brought out the custom-made Christian Lacroix gown she wore to the Oscars. "You look at the inside of this dress," Mirren said, showing off the boning and built-in bra. "It was all made for me, so I didn't have to have any underwear – well I mean, I did have underwear!" But up in Cleavagetown, it was a different story: Clutching her bosom, Mirren explained to Winfrey, "It held me like two angel's hands." Sure, it's not the first time we've seen her show off the goods (remember the Golden Globes?) Let's just hope she keeps 'em covered for her tea with the Queen.

J-Hud's Day Has Arrived – Literally

Most people hate Mondays. But for Jennifer Hudson, Monday, February 26 was the best day ever. And we're not just talking about the previous night's win for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars.

Eddie Murphy Not a Sore Loser?

Eddie Murphy left his seat at the Kodak Theatre after losing the Best Supporting Actor Oscar (for Dreamgirls) to Little Miss Sunshine's Alan Arkin – but his rep says the comedian would have done the same thing even if he'd won.

"Eddie had always planned on leaving after his category was announced to spend the rest of the evening with his family," says rep Arnold Robinson, adding, "He did the same thing following the Golden Globe Awards." (Murphy did win at the Globes.)

Reports that Murphy stormed out of the auditorium after losing circulated widely on the Internet after the show. Both Page Six and TMZ.com report that star was being "a sore loser" after the upset. (Murphy was considered by many to be the favorite to win the category.)

Ellen: 'I Was Scared to Death'

Ellen DeGeneres may have told PEOPLE she was "not at all" nervous about hosting the Oscars, but when the big night rolled around, she tearfully admitted Monday, she was "scared to death."

On her talk show's post-Oscar special, DeGeneres played her video diary from Sunday night, which wrapped up with stars from Beyoncé Knowles to Kate Winslet praising her job as host.

After the montage, a teary DeGeneres told her cheering audience, "I'm crying for many reasons. I'm tired, so I'm emotional ... [but hosting the Oscars] represented so many things to me. It represented that people believed in me, they took a chance in me to hold something like that together, that people would want to see me."

• Later, Leo makes another good impression: He hugs Best Actor winner Forest Whitaker and says, "You took your moment. You moved me, man."

Eddie Murphy sucking on a lollipop and looking confused as he walks into the awards ceremony with girlfriend Tracey Edmonds. "How do we know where we're going?" he asks and then eventually finds his seat.

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher downing cocktails at the Kodak Theatre's downstairs bar. They clustered with friends around a table, as if they were at a British pub. The good-spirited couple left only when a publicist urged them to take their seats.
