The magic of Dustin Hoffman

Strange David Lynchian moment on the red carpet: While Dustin Hoffman was talking to E! red carpet host Ryan Seacrest in the little secondary window in the corner of the TV screen during E's broadcast, Melissa McCarthy was shown posing for photographers in the larger picture. Suddenly, Hoffman appeared in the larger window to greet McCarthy at the same time he was talking to Seacrest. It's still unclear if one was time-delayed video or Hoffman has a doppelganger at the Oscars. Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times
