If you didn’t catch Sunday’s Oscar ceremony, you missed out on co-host James Franco’s apparent boredom; Melissa Leo dropping the “f” bomb during her Best Supporting Actress acceptance speech; and the Academy making it painfully obvious from the beginning of the show that “The King’s Speech” was going to take home Best Motion Picture.

Not that there weren’t some glittering highlights, though. There were plenty of well-groomed attendees and co-host Anne Hathaway had plenty of charisma. A very-pregnant Natalie Portman wooed the audience during her Best Actress acceptance speech for her role in “Black Swan.” Did any of you actually like Nicole Kidman’s gown?

Scroll through our gallery to see some of the night’s other high points.

  • Co-hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway with Oprah. This reminds us of awkward Facebook album pictures as well as surprising snapshots.
  • We're holding out for "Black Swan" star Mila Kunis to at least get a 2012 Oscar nomination.
  • Cate Blanchett rockin' the tablecloth look?
  • Melissa Leo got Best Supporting Actress for her performance in "The Fighter." We loved her sincerity but were put off when she uttered an obscenity during her acceptance speech. Not cool.
  • We bet Best Supporting Actress nominee Hailee Steinfeld of "True Grit" wouldn't have dropped the f-bomb in the middle of her speech had she landed the award...
  • Jesse Eisenberg may not have received the Best Actor Oscar, but he can rest assured knowing he forever has the heart of this slideshow creator.
  • Even 2010 Best Actress Sandra Bullock wants to be Jesse Eisenberg's Facebook friend, as she mentioned during the Best Actor presentation.
  • Is there anything more precious than pregnant Natalie Portman receiving Best Actress?
  • Okay, Trump, are you running for president or trying to be cool with Hollywood?
  • As predicted, presenter Russell Brand brought immense comedic relief to the Academy Awards.
  • Giuliana Rancic reminds us of underwater moss.
  • Best Supporting Actress nominee Amy Adams exuded class and poise all evening.
  • Scarlett Johansson looking great this year.
  • We expect to see more outstanding performances from Best Actress nominee Jennifer Lawrence.
  • Co-host James Franco remained milquetoast throughout the ceremony. Maybe he was worried about his grades. After all, he did make a shout out to his alma mater, New York University, so school was clearly on his mind.
  • Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon never fails to wow us.
  • Colin Firth as he snagged Best Actor.
  • I suppose nothing is complete without Oprah, who served as an Oscar presenter.
  • Anne Hathaway laughing with the momentarily effeminate James Franco, who won us over when he joked, "I just got a text from Charlie Sheen."
  • Boyishly appealing Andrew Garfield, who portrayed Eisenberg's screwed-over friend in "The Social Network."
  • Best Supporting Actress of 2007, Jennifer Hudson in a stunning appearance.
  • Anne Hathaway had to make up for the low spirits of co-host James Franco.
