The Oscars Brought Laughter, Tears, and Lots of Singing

Last night, the Oscars provided an exciting finale to another awesome award season. We were treated to a new format that kicked off with Hugh Jackman showing off his singing and dancing skills before having fun and joking with the big names of the night. Later on he was joined by Beyonce, Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, and Amanda Seyfried for a fun medley honoring musicals. Jennifer Aniston looked gorgeous onstage and happy sitting next to John, although we were so hoping to see her on the red carpet. Among the big surprises of the night were the presenters — we were treated to sightings of some of our favorites from Reese to Will, with a special shout-out to Ben Stiller for cracking us up with his Joaquin Phoenix impersonation.

There weren't many upsets last night and the winners — click here to see them all — could not have been more gracious to accept their Oscar. Penelope started it off by joking that she might faint, which was later echoed by Kate Winslet who also had an especially sweet moment trying to locate her dad in the huge crowd. Heath Ledger's family accepted his statue on his behalf, as we teared up right along with everyone in the Kodak Theater. Sean Penn won the final showdown between him and Mickey, but he was sure to give his friend a very honorable mention. The big winner of the night was Slumdog Millionaire, with the whole cast onstage accepting the Best Picture trophy — right down to the film's smallest stars.

I like the bit between Hugh and Anne. :D And it was touching for the past winners to give accolades to each nominee. The nominees looked more pleased to be praised by their worthy comrades than receiving a trophy and that makes it worth watching.

I'm glad there's a few comments here about Sean forgetting to mention Robin in his acceptance speech. I ragged on him while I was watching and my boyfriend didn't think it was a big deal (!) He said Sean has to thank his movie associates and they are responsible for him getting the award, not his wife. Ok, is this just a gal thing or am I right for thinking Sean's a noob?

The Ben Stiller thing was in very poor taste. Not funny at all :(

I agree with Cariadlawn I don't like it when the BUT and this is just my opinion, I also don't think they should worry so much about ratings and pleasing other people.I prefer a more traditional format. I did like, LOVE, the Bollywood number. The James Franco bit (and I do like him) was too MTV Movies for my taste. Too crass.And yea, regardless of the deal with Joaquin he shouldn't have been mocked in that way. That Ben Stiller bit was also too MTV and declasse. Yuck.

Yeah. Hugh Jackman was good and entaining. He really enjoyed himself.

I thought Hugh did a good job... Didn't take himself too seriously. The last performance with that Wall-E and Slumdog thing was good. I also enjoyed it when they brought out past winners (Sir Ben Kingsley)!

You may have something about Beyonce being squeezed into an outfit that was "too small". Sorry Beyonce, I love you, but you did look kinda of plump on stage. Your beloved ample figure may have gotten a little too ample to where it is not serving you as you would have it do. You looked great in the movie "Dream Girls". I think you said you had slimmed down with the Master Cleanser. I actually tried the Master Cleanser once. The first 3 days are the hardest. After that it is smooth sailing and you feel so light and clean with so much energy. I think I will do it again as I have been eating a lot over Oscar weekend.

I was very pleased with the show this year and it didn't seem to drag on in a boring manner, either. Poor Jen, she looked like she wanted to crawl under the stage, probably to cover that weird braid of hers. I was cringed through her whole presentation with Jack Black, it just seemed like it went horribly wrong. I loved how Sean Penn's wife looked absolutely bored out of her mind during the show whenever the cameras swept that way! It cracked me up. All in all, almost everyone looked gorgeous minus SJP with her boobs pushed up and out to her armpits and Beyonce squeezed into a too small dress what was not attractive in the first place.

I found the show really good this year. Hugh was very charismatic and looked really confident during the performances. Unfortunately, I thougt Beyonce sounded rather dull and her performance left much to be sought after... My favorite was the past winners coming on stage, some of the made me want to cry... It was probably the best new thing that was added. The speeches were good and I'm finally glad my favorite Kate won, but Iris1000 is right the comment about Meryl came across rude. Another thing I found interesting was that Sean forget to thank his wife, she looked quite sad as well when he didn't acknowledge her. They stage set up was really great as well and bravo for the people who took time to set it up :)
