    Hilary Swank, who played a gritty boxer in "Million Dollar Baby," gave fans a much different look on the red carpet. "I don't know what I did to deserve all this," she said, after winning the award for best actress. "I'm just a girl from a trailer park."

    It's no wonder why every actor wants to work with Clint Eastwood. Last year, Eastwood's "Mystic River" earned Sean Penn and Tim Robbins their first Oscars. This year, Morgan Freeman won his first, hailed for his supporting role in "Million Dollar Baby."

    Stars on the red carpet made fashion statements and, in a few cases, political statements. Scarlett Johansson was among the many celebrities to arrive in fuel-efficient hybrid cars. Johansson calls her hybrid SUV, "very sexy inside and hip."

    No one denies Martin Scorsese is a great filmmaker. He just doesn't seem to win at the Oscars, even after five nominations for best director. At least he's in good company. Alfred Hitchcock was also winless.
