What's with Oscar's exposed body parts?

Angelina Jolie's leg was the talk of last year's red carpet at the Academy Awards. It even got its own Twitter account.

This year it's Anne Hathaway's nipples that are causing a big stir.

The Les Miserables star was expected to wear a gown created by her dear friend, Valentino. Instead she wore a pink Prada gown with a cone-shaped bodice that emphasized her "headlights."

It raised all sorts of chatter on social media, even spawning multiple Twitter accounts, @Hathawaynipple, @hathawaynipples, @annesnipples and the aptly-named "Les Nipplerables."

It's not Hathaway's first wardrobe malfunction of the awards season. She forgot to wear underwear at the New York premiere of Les Miserables in December and was photographed in a compromising position.

But Hathaway got the last laugh. She took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

And that Tiffany necklace she wore was pretty spectacular.
