Who Should Present Oscars in Their Undies?

They keep saying they want the Oscar ceremony to be more surprising. That'd be one way to do it. Am I right?

Perhaps Peter Facinelli (Twilight) had the right idea at the Costume Design Guild Awards on Tuesday. Yes, this is what he presented in.

Only a brave soul would stand next to "Mr Big" whilst in boxers. [more photos @ JAMD]

I think Hugh Jackman ought to consider this tactic. Think about it. The host always changes costumes during the night. Why spend the extra time shuffling Wolverine backstage for undressing? Just have Jackman change outfits on stage. People love behind-the-scenes magic like that. Bill Condon can send me a check when he uses this idea and sees the huge spike in Nielsen ratings. I promise to give Facinelli a cut.

If Hugh isn't to your taste who'd you like to see walk the stage in their undies?

Hugh IS definitely to my taste and I hope that presenters change their undies as well. I wouldn't mind whole supporting actor lineup showing up in boxers if it hadn't been for PSH. And Javier Bardem would be interesting.

Within that limitation, Nicole Kidman or Helen Mirren. Sure, they're a bit older, but so am I.


Carl... I'm guessing that Helen Mirren will say yes.

have you seen that Tracey Ullman spoof 'Get Your Teets Out?'

I would love to see Jake's Gyllenhaal...

Nathaniel!, Hugh would agree with you. He has already promised both the backstage stuff and nakedness

How could anyone not want Jackman in his underwear onstage?

That said, I'd love for it to be Colin Farrell. Or maybe both Josh Brolin AND Diane Lane.

Nat--I hear Michelle P. is planning to present in her scanties...

Have you seen that backstage video where Hugh's dancing around in that sleeveless tee? If he wears that, I promise you, I won't care who actually wins the awards.

Maybe we can get Hugh, Ryan, Jake and Colin to do a kickline number in bike shorts.

Justin Timberlake, George Clooney and LL Cool J.

Cue the Magnetic Fields;

A pretty girl in her underwear
A pretty girl in her underwear
If there's anything better in this world,
Who cares?
La mort, c'est la mort
mais l'amour, c'est l'amour
La mort, c'est seulement la mort
mais l'amour, c'est l'amour
A pretty boy in his underwear
A pretty boy in his underwear
If there's a better reason to jump for joy, who cares?

Hugh in his undies would make me happy. Hugh in his undies would make me save the ceremony on my DVR indefinitely.

Excellent idea, you should forward that to the Academy producers ;)
