Novak was nearly unrecognizable as she joined Matthew McConaughey to present Best Animated Short Film and Best Animated Feature Film, causing even Donald Trump to tweet, “Kim should sue her plastic surgeon!”

Pixar animator Chris Chua wrote, “Kim Novak's face just won for 'Frozen.'”
Others rushed to her defense:
Rose McGowan fumed, “Kim Novak! No standing ovation?! Self-obsessed and disrespectful, that sums up the Oscar audience.”
Fan Suzanne Carrico also defended the star, writing, “Kim Novak deserves our respect & did just fine. Her co presenter was the gentleman she deserves.”
