The most noteworthy star fracas of the night came during the evening after parties, and involved Sean Young getting arrested for showing up at the Governors Ball with no ticket. She is now in the running to host the ceremony next year.

TMZ says the 52-year-old actress, whom the Juice* faithful would remember best as Rachael from Blade Runner or Chani from Dune before she went crazy and tried to win the role of Catwoman in Tim Burton's Batman Returns by making a homemade cat suit, was at the Academy's own private party for no good reason at first. Security asked her to leave because she was outside the party taking photos with the likes of BrangelinaSandra Bullock, Michelle Williams and Jonah Hill, but didn't have a ticket to get in the party. Sean said she was waiting to go inside, but after she left and returned, still sans ticket, security grabbed her arm. She allegedly slapped the guard, who made a citizen's arrest for misdemeanor battery.

Young was caught on camera by TMZ saying the Academy's lawyer was the one recommending she be arrested (watch it above), although she didn't make much sense and was leaving the police station at the time. But hey, it's the most exposure she's gotten since Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.
