|Finally, a beautiful baby dress.|
Also big props to Anne Hathaway as co-host. James Franco was more than a little awkward and, as many tweeters pointed out last night, looked a little ... chemically enhanced, if you know what I mean. But as much as I loved Anne (and, previously, Hugh Jackman) I kinda wish they would go back to old school comedians again.

But in addition to being right about the above categories, winning the first annual Oscars bingo competition with Kay Cassidy and Christina Gonzales, and following all the ups and downs on Twitter, there were a few wonderful highlights from the show.
- Kirk Douglas, oldest presenter at 94 and still going strong.
- The auto-tune musical montage of Harry Potter, Twilight, and Social Network. OMG. (If you missed it, see it here.)
- Best Original Screenplay winner David Seidler (The King's Speech) saying, "My father always said to me I would be a late bloomer."
- Russell Brand and Helen Mirren (looking amazing as always) presenting for Best Foreign Language Film.
- RDJ (with Jude Law) making fun of his own not-so-illustrious past.
- The grand finale with the kids of PS22 in Staten Island singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow with all the night's winners appearing behind them. Best ending ever.
- And, last but most definitely not least, Mr. Darcy—er, Colin Firth winning for Best Actor, with self-effacing humor and dignity.
|The swoon heard 'round the world.|
Did you watch the show? Did you have any favorite (or least favorite—like Cate Blanchett's dress and Gwyneth Paltrow's song, wha?!?) moments to share?
