With all the glitterati of Hollywood out in full force on Oscar night, seems like one lovely young lady got a good slice of the attention.

Dressed in a gorgeous blue gown, and holding on to her proud papa's arm, Corinne Foxx Bishop, daughter to superstar Jamie Foxx (Bishop is his real surname)--- stole a fair share of the night's tweets. Seems everyone was just taken with Corinne once again (she attended the Oscars 8 years ago with her Dad, as well, and stole everyone's heart that night, too!). The father-daughter team also attended this year's Golden Globes together.

If Oscar audiences were gaga over the 18-year-old Corinne, she was equally in awe (and having a marvelous time) at the star-studded event when she tweeted :"My dad and I are hilarious at awards shows. We get star struck then stalk people until we get pics."

Shirley Bassey gets the night's first standing ovation with her electrifying performance of the theme from "Goldfinger." An Oscar night iconic moment in the making.
Who wants to follow that?

James Bond said WHAT?

So the much-anticipated Oscar night reunion of the six actors who've portrayed James Bond through the ages has been reportedly cancelled (a girl can dream, can't she?)

In lieu of hearing them LIVE Sunday night (and a totally fun trivia game for your Oscar-viewing party), see if you can match the correct Bond with the words he uttered, as well as the James Bond film in which the line originated? (No Google help, please!)

They are pictured here: Pierce Brosnan (from left), Roger Moore, George Lazenby, Timothy Dalton, Sean Connery and Daniel Craig.

1) "My dear girl, there are some things that just aren't done, such as drinking Dom Perignon '53 above the temperature of 38 degrees Fahrenheit. That's just as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs!"

2) "Which bullet has my name on it? The first or the last?"

3) "There's always something formal about the point of a pistol."

4) "Standard operating procedure. Boys with toys."

5) "We have an old saying too, Georgi. And you're full of it."

6) "I've got a little itch, down there. Would you mind?"

Answers are posted after the jump... NO PEEKING

Two Chicago college students are among the half-dozen aspiring filmmakers who won a contest to present this year's Oscar statuettes.

Oscar co-producer Neil Meron told the Associated Press that "this tradition of the buxom babe that comes out and brings the trophy to the presenter to give to the winner seemed to be very antiquated and kind of sexist, too. Why can't we have people who actually care about film and are the future of film be the trophy presenters?"

The contest asked college students to submit a short video that answered the question, "How will you contribute to the future of movies?"

More than 1,000 students took part. Here are the six winning entries:

A.J. Young, Columbia College Chicago
Hometown: Mesa, Ariz.

Abe Diaz, DePaul University
Hometown: Duluth, Minn.

ChaRon Brabham, SUNY Potsdam, New York
Hometown: Brooklyn, New York

Jennifer Brofer, University of Texas at Austin
Hometown: Austin, Texas

Hearin Ko, Emerson College in Massachusetts
Hometown: Shanghai, China

Tatenda Mbudzi, UCLA
Hometown: Harare, Zimbabwe
