Oscar 2010 Winners

Last night the Hollywood elite turned out in force for the biggest movie event of the year. Current award show fave, Neil Patrick Harris opened started the proceedings with a song and took shots at the entire audience.

30 Rock’s Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin co-hosted the show and unlike Johnathan Ross at the BAFTAs, they were actually funny. They particularly picked on their friend and co-star of It’s Complicated Meryl Streep, Quentin Tarantino and James Cameron.

Ben Stiller should have won an award for best award presenter as he couldn’t resist the chance to get on stage and give James Cameron a bit of stick. He appeared on stage dressed as a Na’vi complete with ears and a tail to present the award for Best Makeup and made me giggle when he attempted to speak in the fictional language from Avatar.

The night was a huge success with plenty of laughs and well deserved successes, let’s take a look at the winners:
