A number of actors better known for their work on TV were also part of Oscar-nominated movies in 2013, which made the carpet procession even more fun for TV addicts. Here are some of the notable small-screen folks who were at the Oscars.

"Scandal" star Kerry Washington -- and her future child -- was there to introduce Pharrell Williams' Oscar-nominated song "Happy."
