No, no, no. Wackiest outfit is Phyllip Seymour Hoffman.

Who the EF wears a black knit cap to the OSCARS?

I don't know how you vote against Mickey Rourke for wackiest outfit. Did you SEE the glittery scarf at the Golden Globes?! You had to know that something incredible was in store.

The white suit and black vest combo is just awesome. He is my new favorite crazy actor.
