So, what did you think? Did you pick the right winners before they were announced? Did you agree with who won? Did you love the show?
A few highlights I noticed:
* Jean Dujardin dropped an "F bomb" in French during his acceptance speech for Best Actor in "The Artist."
* J Lo revealed more about herself during a wardrobe malfunction than we were expecting.
* Sasha Baron dropped Kim Jong Il's ashes on the ground in front of Ryan Seacrest.
* Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy was the first Pakistani to win an Oscar for "Saving Face."
* Angelina Jolie showcased her long, sexy leg in her gorgeous black gown and was later mocked by one of the writers of "The Descendents."
* Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis added some humor and noise to the ceremony.
* Brad Pitt brought his parents to the awards ceremony.
* Billy Crystal wasn't the show's first choice for host. Brett Ratner was asked, but then was dropped for using a homosexual slur.
* Stacy Keibler wore a sleek gold gown that made her look like an Oscar being held by George Clooney.
Glitz, glamour, gowns...what's not to love?
