He'd already been through a body wax for his role in The 40 Year-Old Virgin, so donning false eyelashes and pancake makeup to present the Oscar for makeup probably wasn't a big deal for Steve Carell. ``What are you wearing?'' asked Carell's co-presenter, Will Ferrell, also plastered in orange makeup. ``It's called pineapple bliss,'' the actor joked. Coming in a close second in the unusual attire category were co-directors Nick Park and Steve Box, who were wearing big striped bow ties when they walked on stage to accept their animated-feature Oscars for Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. They must have been counting on winning because they brought along smaller bow ties, which they quickly dressed their Oscar statuettes with. Not to be outdone, the makers of the Antarctic nature tale March of the Penguins, came on stage carrying stuffed penguins -- matching their tuxedos -- when they accepted their Oscars for best documentary. ``I sleep with him,'' said director Luc Jacquet as he arrived on the red carpet with his stuffed penguin.
