Jake might now have walked the red carpet but he wow'd them last night wherever he went. Looking devastating handsome, the G-man cleans up good and works the hell of a tuxedo. But it wasn't just what he was wearing, but the whole package. He looks confident, relaxed and a wee bit mischievous last night. It's the Jake we all love. Clearly he was having a good time and it showed.
What you didn't get to see:
5 p.m.: With 30 minutes to showtime, Gwyneth Paltrow crosses paths with Jake Gyllenhaal. "Hey, I'm sitting right behind you," he tells her. "Oh good, I'll throw up on you then," says Paltrow, who will perform the nominated song from "Country Strong."
5:07 p.m.: There's major mingling inside the theater now. On one side, Colin Firth kisses Amy Adams on the cheek. In the center, Hugh Jackman is shown to his front-row seat before bouncing away. On the other side, Jake Gyllenhaal greets Marisa Tomei and Hilary Swank. "We're sitting next to each other," Swank excitedly tell Gyllenhaal.
Soon it is time for Jake to do what he came for and looks like the shorts didn't come up short during the telecast, it was one of the high points of the show.
E! had nothing to but good things to say about when Jake and Amy and the dude who picked up the statue with them.
Jake & Amy: The charming duo introduced the short subjects with the kind of humor and wit you'd expect for a long-form award.
Luke Matheny: Never heard of him? You will, as the Live Action Short Subject winner charmed the fancy pants off the audience.
Best Star-Making Performance: Luke Matheny's vibrant, funny speech for Live Action Short Film was not only a jolt of energy for the show, but it made us want to watch whatever he does next. And really if you're going to be charming, it's probably not a bad idea to do it in a roomful of film executives.
Speaking of Best Performances by a twitter
Mr. Nichols. For his own brand of humor that was beating out the show's writers.
I was just thrown off the red carpet by security. They are putting Geoffrey Rush in my seat.
I'm going around back to see if I can sneak in. Just saw Banksy tagging a wall. Stay tuned.. OK I GOT IN!!! I yelled, "Natalie's water broke!". Everybody looked left, I went right and slipped in the door. Now I have to find a seat.
Its true. I had to put on a waiter's uniform. I am walking around passing out rolls. Waiting for Mark Walberg to go pee so I can sit down.
Just bumped into McConaughey backstage. He slipped me a flask and said, "Austin, take a pull baby." No lie.
And then I passed the flask to Coleen Atwood. Oops!!
And no Fop for him it was Dapper Dan all the way .
Where exactly was Mr. Nichols? Know he wasn't watching with his co-star, who tweeted she was watching with two girl friends. He even had OTH fans asking her how come he got to go to the Oscars and she stayed in NC.
Hey he's been to all the parties before - and Jake with no date? Austin would never let that happen. And who better to help with those pre-presenting jitters than your hot hubs telling you how handsome you look and how you're going to kill it on stage. Not to mention a kiss for good luck.
Then again, the biggest thing he might have done to help, was to keep the not so tall ones off Papa's made to measure Ferragamo tux before he left for the show.
And yes you looked better in yours than Jimmy Franco in that pink thing.
that manageable curl or do you use curl gel?
I'm not asking for myself but for someone else who's curl is coming back .
Well Jake now that I'm retiring from ET, I'm passing that title on to you.
No Oscar yet for Jake but that's not to say he didn't get something golden when he got home.
