All Star Line Up At The Oscars

From the sweet to the silly to the shocking, click through for some of the best moments I had at the 84th annual Academy Awards.

Christopher Plummer
As Christopher Plummer has racked up awards for his moving performance in “The Beginners,” he seems more young and spry than ever — though the 82-year-old admits that winning an Oscar helps…

Octavia Spencer
After dissolving in tears while accepting her Oscar for best supporting actress for her role in “The Help,” Octavia Spencer got it together backstage but almost — like best actor winner Jean Dujardin — let loose that unfortunate F-word…

Jean Dujardin
After the devastatingly handsome French star of “The Artist,” Jean Dujardin, bested the likes of George Clooney and Brad Pitt for the best actor Academy Award, the actor was clearly pumped, exclaiming on stage, “Thank you.

Amanda Seyfried – From Chasing A Bad Guy in “Gone” to Playing “Deep Throat” Star Linda Lovelace

Talk about a change of pace. Amanda Seyfried wheels through wild car chases and shoots a big gun as the action heroine of “Gone.” Then she confesses what it was like to face some bedroom action as the Queen of Porn in “Lovelace.”
