Miley Cyrus had plenty of people talking at Sunday's Academy Awards.

On E!'s pre-show, she kept slouching in her champagne-colored silk and tulle Jenny Packham gown.

Then, her middle-aged mom Tish got in front of the camera and spun around, showing off angel wings she has tattooed on her back.

Miley, 17, didn't seem embarrassed. She even told host Ryan Seacrest her mom "has nice choices in tattoos."

Miley later ditched her mom at Elton John's post-Oscar bash, where she snuggled with up boyfriend (and Last Song costar) Liam Hemsworth.

At the bash, they packed on the PDA -- when she wasn't furiously texting. He kept touching her affectionately and she was constantly whispering in his ear.

Asked on E!'s pre-show if she's in love, Miley coyly replied, "Maybe."
