And it's over. Gervais clearly didn't want to rock the boat this time 'round. 'The Descendants' and 'The Artist' emerge with more Oscar buzz than a few hours ago, but each was already heavily in the mix.
How many penis jokes over the last three hours? I lost count.
Another beep ... thanks, Meryl! Maybe they should cut off the liquor at the two-hour mark.
Best Acting of the Night - Meryl Streep appearing shocked to hear her name as the Best Actress winner!
Was that our first bleep?
They're honoring Morgan Freeman ... please don't show a clip from "Dreamcatcher" ...
Madonna makes a funny - takes a swipe at Gervais for making a moldy swipe at her 'virginal' status. Between the Madonna crack and the Kardashian jokes, Gervais is hardly cutting edge tonight. What, no Charo reference?
Nice duet from Huffman/Macy ... just underplayed at the right level.
Woody Allen couldn't be there tonight?? Shocking.
Another winner gives props to his kids ... so family friendly! If you forget Rogen's comments ... and Gervais' comments ...
