Ben Stiller's costume at the Academy Awards was one of the most memorable points of the evening. As the presenter for the Best Makeup category, Stiller came out in Avatar attire—complete with yellow eyes, braids, pointy ears and a tail.

Even though Avatar was not nominated in this category, Stiller got right into character speaking Na'vi, but admitted he should have just stuck with Spock ears instead. Oh well, there's always next year, Ben.
