Wearing a custom Atelier Versace gown that featured a thigh-high slit, the 36-year-old actress oozed confidence on the red carpet. "I wanted to be comfortable and I feel sexy in black velvet," Jolie told Us Weekly.

Jolie's over-the-top posing wasn't the only thing that stood out at the star-studded ceremony: her increasingly thin appearance became a topic of concern on Twitter. According to The Academy, Jolie's bondy body ignited 3,399 tweets per minute.

"Dear Angelina Jolie. . .eat something," wrote singer-songwriter Bonnie McKee.
