Just a few hours before at the hotel’s Polo Lounge, High School Musical sweethearts and Oscar performers Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens enjoyed some lunch at the same time as Leonardo DiCaprio, Tyra Banks and Jimmy Kimmel & Sarah Silverman.
Access Hollywood blog:
3:27 PM — Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens arrive. She’s in a black mermaid gown. Zac gives her a sweet kiss on the temple and together they look up and take in the moment of being at the Oscars together.
From MTV blog:
3:30: Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens step onto the red carpet. It’s the first Oscar ceremony for either. Zac says he’s pulling for “Sean Penn in ‘Milk.’ ”
3:47 (from Larry): Zac Efron walks past me looking classy, with a tiny bow tie, old-school tux and slicked-back hair. Vanessa, in a matching black-and-white dress, has to stop for mid-carpet repairs when someone steps on her train.
3:49: Zac gives the press bleachers one of his patented winks. Audible gasps are overheard.
3:59: Vanessa Hudgens, clearly having major issues with her dress, walks into the theater holding up the front and fidgeting with whatever’s going on underneath. Zac seems to have abandoned her somewhere around the three-quarter mark on the carpet.
4:15: First to the lobby bar: Zac and Vanessa, and Miley just joined them. And Miley’s mom. Only soda. I promise.
4:55 (from inside the Kodak): Jack Black locked in convo with Gus Van Sant at the lobby bar. Vanessa and Zac, hand-in-hand, weaving through the lobby bar as if it were their wedding reception.
From ET online:
Dev Patel dished about meeting 'High School Musical''s Zac Efron!
"Actually I met [Zac] backstage and he was really nice," Dev told us.
We may not have even noticed, but Amanda Seyfried did when she briefly caught her heel in a stocking during that elaborate song-and-dance number she did with Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and other young stars at Sunday's Oscars.
"I would feel a lot better if I hadn't," the disappointed "Mamma Mia!" co-star said as she came offstage. Efron, however, made light of the moment.
"We'll never be invited back," he joked.
Turns out the "High School Musical" star had a little wardrobe malfunction of his own. His microphone had gotten tangled in his bow tie, and Hudgens had to untangle him when they got offstage.
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Overall, it was a "heelacious" night at the Oscars.
First Amanda Seyfried got a heel of her shoe caught in a stocking during a song-and-dance number. Then Alicia Keys broke a heel as she ran from the green room to the stage to make an Oscar presentation with Zac Efron.
Fortunately Keys was wearing a long dress and no one seemed to notice when she breezed onto the stage with one leg shorter than the other.

Ugghh. I am tired of the Diet Pepsi ads. That is all.
Finally the awards start:
I love this format. I loved the opening, even if it was slightly ridiculous.
Best supporting actress:
I love the way they had the five ladies present. I felt it was very sweet and made the occasion really special and momentous, as it should be.
And I'm loving Steve Martin and Tina Fey's presentation (her dress is gorgeous), and their dig at Scientology, lol.
OMG glamour_addict! Dustin Lance Black won, but he didn't hug Zef since it wasn't him presenting. But his speech was amazing and moving! What a sweetie.
OMG I <3 Jack Black. And Jen's dress is amazing. And lol at the cut from Jen presenting to Angelina laughing. And the presentation of the films in this category is so fucking awesome.
And the song the played as the short animation film winner came up sounded vaguely like "Belle" from Beauty and the Beast, which confused me momentarily.
And I've decided, as I told shrewtee, that Zef is channeling Jack Dawson with his slicked back hair:
This makes his hair slightly more acceptable to me. LOL. But seriously, get a hair cut or stick to your boy bangs. But if you go slightly shorter Zef, you rock it both ways.
The Art Awards:
Umm, still resentful that HSM3 wasn't involved here. I mean, how they dressed that cafeteria was fucking amazing, considering it was a real high school not a set.
Anyway, the set is beautiful, awards boring. And they play that theme again, the "Belle"-esque theme. Ugh, I hate that when it isn't really a borrowing, but it sounds like one. Sometimes having eagle ears, sucks.
Romance in 2008:
Okay rpattzy and seyfried were stiff, boring, and not funny. Boo.
And wtf at them using the Jimmy the Rocket clip. I like the other hsm3 clips, of course. And I'm so pleased they used the Wall-E kiss last. SO CUTE!
LOL @ Ben Stiller. And thank god they finally panned out so we could see him wandering around.
Um science awards or whatever... boring and while I actually think Jessica Biel is pretty her dress wasn't.
Oh and the commercial for the Soloist. No thank you. I hate cello movies, they are usually lame.
LOL @ the Pineapple Express take on this. Fuck awesome.
Awww, Zaccy. QT pie. That is why you don't grease your hair so much, your hat will fall off, lol.
I didn't really like the number that well and it could have used more Zac Efron (like times about a gagillion), but that's okay.
He did really well and sounded good and on pitch. Oh and he didn't trip. LOL.
The slow mo "You Can't Stop the Beat" was weird and they used one of the few songs Zac and Vanessa didn't sing in HSM.
Anyway. I see what Baz was going for, but it needed more work. They seriously should have just had the HSM cast fucking rock out to Night to Remember or something. Ugh.
Still - Zac you done good!
(yeah, they should have sung Just Wanna Be With You, definitely).
Love the Man on A Wire. :)
Second thoughts on the musical performance:
Having had a few minutes to think about this performance, I have further thoughts. I love it, of course, for Zac. But I think what bothers me about this whole thing is that Zac and Vanessa and Hugh (idk about the other two) can do so much better. I mean, it just wasn't at their level so it was kind of uninspired.
Disney/ABC really should have just had the HSM cast working on some hot shit from January 1 and integrated Hugh and Beyonce into it. It would have fucking rocked so much more than that.
That is what bothers me. For people unfamiliar with HSM, they now think that ridiculous medley was probably on par with what was in HSM. Which is totally not true, of course. I mean, the songs may suck but the performances in HSM are top notch.
Notice too they barely gave the Mamma Mia people anything to do, cause they can't bring it like Hugh, Beyonce, Zac or Vanessa.
Anyway. I still love it just for Zac and I love that they had the amazing opportunity to participate. But the number was a little bit of an insult to their abilities.
Okay, that off my chest. We're coming up to Zac's award presentation. Please, just let him be more interesting than rpattzy was (which shouldn't be hard).
I kind of blanked out until Zac came back on to present. YEAH!
And I am loving this medley. Having seen it and especially within the context of the show, I don't think presenting the songs this way was disrespectful to the writers at all. It was beautifully done.
He was so cute and very smooth. Good job bb!
Okay I'm kind of ignoring the rest of this... sort of, lol. Um. But it was cute of the Slumdog director to say good job to the Oscar presentation peeps.
And can I just lol at the "We're all in this together" in the Hyundai commercial. Seriously I keep hearing that phrase everywhere now in reference to the recession and life sucking. But it just makes me laugh cause all I can think of HSM.
OMG this format kills me. It just is so full of meaning, so beautiful. Really makes the moment something to remember for the nominees. And all of them are so beautiful. And can I just say Kate Winslet is my hero and the best moment of the night had to be her dad whistling to her. LOL <3
idc who wins but I want to know if they boys will cry. lol.
Sean Penn gave a pretty class speech, I'm impressed.
I guess we're onto Best Movie??
Okay, yes. Yeah! Slumdog Millionaire. Yeah!
Ummm... no, Seventeen Again in that montage but they'll show a burning hamster, wtf?!
